Jim Starkey: Introducing Falcon (the video and the podcast)

This past Monday the Boston MySQL meetup featured Jim Starkey, a database guru who's hard at work coding a new database storage engine (code named Falcon) for MySQL.

This is a great presentation, Jim throws in a lot of database history and insight into working with MySQL. I left the camera on for the first bit of the Q/A. Also very good stuff.

I put in some extra video production effort this month. The video includes superimposed slides for better readability. Sheeri bought a new mic last month which captures the audience feedback better than in the past, seems to work well.

You can get the Quicktime here or here. Google video coming shortly.

Oh, and for folks who want it as a podcast (audio only), you can get that here.

As usual, thanks to Martin at kbglob for donating bandwidth.
