Percona Live Europe Amsterdam Day 1 was a bunch of fun, especially since I didn’t have to give a talk or anything since my tutorial was over on Day 0.
At lunch, I realised that there are a lot more fringe events happening around Percona Live… and if you’ve seen how people do “tech weeks”, maybe this is what the event ends up being – a show, plus plenty of focused satellite events. FOSDEM in the open source world totally gets this, and best of all, also lists fringe events (see example from 2019).
So, Thursday evening gets a few fringe events, a relatively short train ride away:[Read more]

It was all aboard the Lone Star river boat for the 100 delegates who joined our Community Dinner. Loading took quite some time, Tom Basil attended to the guest list, and then the necessary signatures for those aboard. I’d woken at 6am to a less than favorable forecast, but the weather was kind to us, with blue sky and a gentle breeze.
My colleague and local Austin resident Rick Vasquez had on Tuesday treated me to my first visit to a US liquor store, Specs. This store was bigger than the largest store in my hometown but sold only alcohol-related products and drink-friendly snacks. An experience in itself! We stuck to the brief of Texas-only brew for our guests.
As people boarded they received their swag – PlanetScale and Percona branded steel enamel mugs – and bar and dinner queues formed. The lines moved relatively quickly for the fajita and tex mex themed buffet. …[Read more]

So, typically, a Percona Live (or MySQL User) Conference blog
would start off with some mention of the fact that it’s great to
be meeting up again in Santa Clara, California, the birthplace of
the MySQL User Conference, and a continuous fixture on the yearly
MySQL community agenda.
But no, not this time!
On this occasion, the Percona Live Conference blog starts off by pointing out that for the first time since its inception (as far as I can recollect), the MySQL User Conference, i.e. Percona Live Conference (in North America) doesn’t take place in Santa Clara, but rather in Austin, Texas.
Never having been to Texas before myself, I’m looking forward to that innovation, discovering the new surroundings and seeing whether that changes anything or not to the familiar “feel” of a Percona Live / MySQL User Conference.
By the way, there’s still time to …
