Conference review Percona Live Santa Clara 2018

Percona Live Santa Clara, an annual event where open source database users, developers and enthusiasts come together, was held in April at the Santa-Clara convention centre. Pythian was well represented once more with no less than five presentations and a total of nine attendees.

This year the conference was condensed to two days of breakout sessions and one day of tutorials. Though it was shorter in length, the organizers broadened their horizons by including not only MySQL and MongoDB tracks, but this year they even put together a full PostgreSQL track. Moving from MySQL only to multiple technologies, inspired this year’s tagline: polyglot persistence conference. The increase in number of sessions allowed for a lot more options, but the condensed schedule made it much harder to choose which sessions to attend!

My observation from last year’s …

End of an Era: Neither MC nor Continuent Attending Percona Live

Continuent have been a long term sponsor of the Percona Live conference, and the MySQL conference as it was before that, for many years. We have attended the conference both as a Diamond sponsor, and members of our staff attending and presenting our products and experience at the conference.

The nature of these conferences always changes over time, and we have seen over the last few years how the Percona Live conference has moved from being a pure MySQL conference to an open source database conference. Although Continuent continue to provide open source software and integrate with many open source databases, our core operation still revolves around MySQL clustering and replication for MySQL and Oracle.

Continuent is also evolving and changing and we are increasingly deploying and moving towards pure cloud-based environments, building and developing products that are used on the cloud or …

Conference Tips!

For those going to Percona Live next week, I am re-sharing this blog post from September 2012 (from a now-defunct blog):

As many folks know, I do a bit of traveling, both going to conferences, and speaking at them (MySQL and others). So I have compiled a list of tips and tricks, from the basics like do not forget to eat breakfast to putting your business cards inside your bag. I have a list with pictures that I will add to as I think of more. I hope you enjoy this tumblr-style list of conference tips!

Do you have any other tips? Add them in the comments!

PGConf Silicon Valley 2015 was Excellent - Baron Schwartz on VividCortex's PostgreSQL Sniffer

PGConf Silicon Valley was excellent this year: good organization, great speakers, and top-notch vibes in general. We were excited to see everybody visiting (and crowding!) our booth and the overall very positive community presence. Highlights included a presentation about Postgres' use at TripAdvisor, a look at Amazon RDS for Postgres, and consideration of system scalability and the future of relational database management systems.

Baron Schwartz, VividCortex's own founder and CEO, was at the Silicon Valley conference, and he's said that it was the best PGConf he's been to yet. On November 18th, Baron even led a breakout session, titled "Analyzing PostgreSQL Network Traffic with vc-pgsql-sniffer," in which he explained both the principles and practice that come together to result in VividCortex's powerful sniffer tools. Even the questions asked at Baron's talk were fantastic.
