Podcasts Craig Mullins - Coming to an Enterprise Near You
If everyone had their own crystal ball, no one would be curious about what the future may hold for the database industry (and our working lives), right? We don’t have a crystal ball, but DBAzine has its very own visionary on hand to help us. Join us as industry (very) smart guy Craig Mullins weighs in on a lot of issues that are dear to our hard-working hearts, including trends he sees now, and for the future, in database management; that perennially sore matter of data growth; the open source movement’s impact on the database market; software as a service; and more.
Podcasts Jay Pipes and Michael Kruckenberg - Open Source Pros
The new book is ProMySQL, covering all of the newest MySQL 5 features, the MySQL server architecture, storage engines, transaction processing, benchmarking, and advanced SQL scenarios. And the authors, Jay Pipes and Michael Kruckenberg, are not too shy to open up about a big range of big topics, including whether open source software will ever displace those legacy apps (and why CIOs who insist it won't should take a closer look at what's running in their enterprise). They also give their views on what they see as the biggest challenge to open source as it moves forward into the mainstream, why MySQL rocks as opposed to other OS solutions, and why in the world they decided to write a big, technical book, anyway (it probably wasn't for the fame, fortune, and glory). They are a couple of nice guys gone author on us, and in this podcast interview, they explain why.

Join in an interview with Jonathan Lewis, author of the hot new book, Cost-Based Oracle Fundamentals, published by Apress.
