SQL99 Complete, ReallyYou can now enjoy  SQL-99 Complete, Really by Peter Gulutzan and Trudy Pelzer aka. “The Definitive Door Stopper” online in our Knowledgebase at http://kb.askmonty.org/v/sql-99-complete-really.

Thanks to our technical writer and system administrator at Monty Program Ab Daniel Bartholomew we now have a complete description of the SQL-99 standard for syntax, data structures, and retrieval processes of SQL databases. As an example-based reference manual it includes all of the CLI functions, information, schema tables, and status codes.

Please make sure to check out our commenting system. You can add your comments for every section of the book.

New Year is coming! And it brings us a new MySQL User Conference! As always, me and my colleagues will be attending — we have great talks to offer:

  • Monty is giving a keynote State of MariaDB. Just like the last year, Monty will tell you how we are doing, what we have spent the last year on, what we are working on now.
  • Colin presents A Beginner’s Guide to MariaDB talk. If you have heard of MariaDB, but don’t quite know what it is and why you should care — go and attend his talk.
  • Sergei (that’s me) together with Andrew Hutchings will give a tutorial Mastering the MySQL Plugin Development. An interactive and updated version of the book that was recently published. Unlike the book, we will use MySQL 5.5 as a base, not 5.1. Most of the material will equally apply to MariaDB and Percona Server — they are all compatible on the Plugin API level.

See you at the conference! It’s going to be a great one!

P.S. Hopefully, Eyjafjallajökull will be quiet this time.
