Personal Summary of the Percona Live Amsterdam 2015 Conference

Last week, 21-23 September, it took place the European MySQL Conference, or “Data performance Conference” as this year’s subtitle was “MySQL. NoSQL. Data in the cloud.”. This year, it changed its location from London to Amsterdam and, as most people I talked to agreed, the change was for good. As every year, Percona was the company organizing it, but it had the participation of all the major players in the open source MySQL/MongoDB/Cloud data world. Special mention goes to Booking.com, which had more …

What I’m looking forward to at Percona Live (MySQL Users Conference)

This is my 10th year attending and speaking at the MySQL Users Conference (as the Percona Live MySQL Conference and Expo was originally called back in 2003), and for me it does not get tiring. So what is there in this conference for me as an attendee, speaker and businessman?

MySQL University: Speakers for 2010 wanted!

We'll soon have our last MySQL University session for this year, followed by a winter break until the end of January 2010. So far there's only one session scheduled next year, but we'd like to have one session per week, so we need lots more speakers!

Anyone who has something technical to say about MySQL qualifies as a speaker. MySQL University sessions take place on Thursday afternoons European time, and normally have between 20 and 30 attendees, but quite a lot of people listen to the recordings when the live session time isn't convenient for them. We're using Dimdim as our conferencing system, so the setup for speakers is very simple: Just grab a headset, start a Flash-enabled browser on either Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, or Solaris, perform a 10-minute test with the MySQL University host, and …

Preparing for the future: MySQL conference 2009

Here is a list of talks at the MySQL user conference that focus on new and upcoming features in MySQL. I will try to attend most of these myself, although I have some certifications to acquire and other topics of interest. It’s almost like I would like to split myself in multiple threads so I [...]
