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.

To watch a video of Baron's breakout session, find …

Cross your Fingers for Tech14, see you at OSCON

So I’ve submitted my talks for the Tech14 UK Oracle User Group conference which is in Liverpool this year. I’m not going to give away the topics, but you can imagine they are going to be about data translation and movement and how to get your various databases talking together.

I can also say, after having seen other submissions for talks this year (as I’m helping to judge), that the conference is shaping up to be very interesting. There’s a good spread of different topics this year, but I know from having talked to the organisers that they are looking for more submissions in the areas of Operating Systems, Engineered Systems and Development (mobile and cloud).

If you’ve got a paper, presentation, or idea for one that you think would be useful, …
