Percona Live Open Source Database Conference 2019 – Austin, Texas is on 28-30 May 2019, This is no longer a MySQL only conference and it is a must attend conference for every open source database systems geek who is passionate about building an web-scale database infrastructure operations which is optimal, scalable, highly reliable and secured. This conference provides great opportunity to network, learn and share knowledge with passionate technology professionals from across the globe. I personally track this conference for several years and it is among those few very organized Technology Ops. conferences, This year Percona Live is personally more special to me because I had an opportunity to be on the Percona Live conference committee ( https://www.percona.com/live/19/conference-committee ) and really enjoyed the entire process from kick-off call to …[Read more]
Less than one month left until Percona Live. This time the Committee work was a bit unusual. Instead of having one big committee for the whole conference we had a few mini-committees, each responsible for a track. Each independent mini-committee, in turn, had a leader who was responsible for the whole process. I led the MariaDB track. In this post, I want to explain how we worked, which topics we have chosen, and why.
For MariaDB, we had seven slots: five for 50-minutes talks, two for 25-minutes talks and 19 submissions. We had to reject two out of three proposals. We also had to decide how many topics the program should cover. My aim here was to use the MariaDB track to demonstrate as many MariaDB unique features as …[Read more]

This year we’re having a different concept for Percona Live conferences, which started at Percona Live Europe 2018 last fall. This is an approach practiced by many other organizations by having separate track for MySQL®, MongoDB®, MariaDB®, or PostgreSQL and more.
Having many tracks in this big Open Source Database Conference meant that one track steering committee could not be asked to handle all the talks for each track. So we formed several mini-committees to make sure that the submissions to each of the tracks received the right level of attention from the right kind …[Read more]
Many of our regular attendees already know that the Percona Live Open Source Database Conference is not all about Percona software or, indeed, all about Percona. However, with moving to a new city—Austin, TX— we have realized that it’s something we ought to shout out loud and clear. Our conference really is technology agnostic! As long as submissions were related to open source databases then they were candidate for selection.[Read more]

We had a great response to our call for papers, thank you! However great we believe having the conference in Austin, TX will be, moving to a new area of the US is still a leap of faith until we see the numbers. So we’re thankful that so many of you continue to support and take part in our Open Source Database Conference. We have great plans for the event going forward, and look forward to sharing them with you.
In fact, one new initiative is already underway. Instead of having one relatively small committee that reviews all of the papers for all tracks, we are taking a different approach this year. Each track is led by a Percona engineer or manager in the role of “Track Champion”, and they each are establishing a Track Steering Committee to review the submissions for that one track.
There are many benefits to this approach. First of all, it means that folk with in-depth knowledge of a technology review a smaller number of …[Read more]
