Join Percona Chief Evangelist Colin Charles as he covers happenings, gives pointers and provides musings on the open source database community.
Have you registered for Percona Live already? The tutorial grid, the schedules for day 1 and day 2 are pretty amazing, and there is even an extra track being added, for a total of 10 concurrent/parallel tracks during day 1 & day 2. If you submitted a talk and it didn’t get accepted (competition was high), you should have received a discount code to register for the event.
I plan to write more dedicated blog posts around M|18 and the MariaDB Developer’s Unconference. Hang on till next week? I gave my presentation, targeted at developers, titled MySQL features missing in MariaDB Server. It was a room of maybe 40-45 people, and had some debate, but not much more; there were some other excellent presentations as well.
Next week, Percona will be at SCALE16x. We are sponsors, so there will also be a booth (where you can get some interesting schwag), and don’t forget that both Peter Zaitsev and I have a talk (one on Friday, the other on Saturday). Looking forward to seeing you all there.
