InnoDB Internals: InnoDB File Formats and Source Code Structure

This Thursday (October 1st, 14:00 UTC - one hour later than usually),
Calvin Sun will give a session on InnoDB Internals: InnoDB File Formats
and Source Code Structure. The InnoDB storage engine provides
transactions, row-level locking, and automatic crash recovery. Its
on-disk files play a pivotal role for those key features. This
presentation describes how on-disk files are structured, how compressed
tables are organized, and how long variable-length columns are stored.
As we develop new features, it is inevitable for file format changes. We
will explain how the new file format management works in the InnoDB
Plugin. This talk also covers InnoDB source code structure.

For MySQL University sessions, point your browser to this page:

You need a browser with a working Flash plugin. You may register for a
Dimdim account, but you don't have to. (Dimdim is the conferencing
system we're using for MySQL University sessions. It provides integrated
voice streaming, chat, whiteboard, session recording, and more.)

MySQL University is a free educational online program for
engineers/developers. MySQL University sessions are open to anyone, not
just Sun employees. Sessions are recorded (slides and audio), so if you
can't attend the live session you can look at the recording anytime
after the session.

Here's the schedule for the upcoming weeks:

* October 8: Building MySQL Releases on Unix (Jörg Brühe)
* October 15: The Spider Storage Engine (Giuseppe Maxia)
* October 22: Dual Master Setups With MMM (Arjen Lentz)
* October 29: MySQL scalability on SPARC & INTEL X5500 (Nehalem) (Benoit
* November 12: Gearman for MySQL (Giuseppe Maxia)

up-to-date list. On that page, you can also find the starting time for
