November is a busy month of events for Percona. Conferences in Moscow, London, Paris, Las Vegas, Buenos Aires, and Montevideo mean our experts are racking up the frequent flyer miles meeting users of Percona software from around the world, sharing our insights on MySQL performance and operations, and learning how others are growing and scaling their applications.
Percona started the month in Moscow attending and speaking at Highload++. This event from October 31 to November 1 welcomed thousands of experts from the biggest and brightest companies in Europe and around the world with a keen interest in developing large scale web applications.
From Moscow we traveled to London to host the annual Percona Live London event from November 3-4. If you missed the keynotes, tutorials, sessions, and general MySQL camaraderie, we’re meeting again April 13-16, 2015, in Santa Clara, CA, at the Percona Live MySQL Conference & Expo, the premier event for the rich and diverse MySQL ecosystem. Based on growing demand, we’ve expanded the conference with OpenStack Live, a unique event for learning key considerations for cloud strategies, how to improve overall performance, and operational best practices for managing OpenStack and maximizing the MySQL core. The Call for Papers for both Percona Live and OpenStack Live close soon so submit your speaker proposals today!
The next stop was Paris to attend, exhibit, and speak at the OpenStack Summit. This event, which ran from November 3-7, drew over 4,000 developers, users, and administrators of OpenStack cloud software seeking to learn about the technology and plan future development. Percona is pleased to play a part in the OpenStack community by participating in the Trove project for DBaaS as well as supporting those that need help with the MySQL core of the technology. In their keynote presentation, Time Warner Cable even featured Percona as a key partner helping them to radically change their business using OpenStack.
This week we’re in Las Vegas for AWS re:Invent at The Venetian running from November 11-14. AWS re:Invent will welcome thousands of developers and operations experts interested in maximizing the power of cloud infrastructure. We want to meet organizations that are creating applications on the Amazon Web Services platform using MySQL and Percona open source software.
Visit us in the Venetian Expo Hall at booth 553 by the Developer Lounge and tell us about your application. We’ll be located next to Heroku and the team from Atlassian. Stop by and enter for a chance to win a Kindle Fire HDX 8.9!
After Las Vegas, Percona MySQL experts will be speaking at two more events, both in South America.
- MySQL, NoSQL and Cloud 2014 Latin America Conference in Buenos Aires, Argentina, from November 13-14
- TechMeetup v2014 in Montevideo, Uruguay, from November 14-15
At the MySQL, NoSQL and Cloud 2014 Latin America Conference, Percona Support Engineer Marcos Albe, Percona Consultants Francisco Bordenave and Daniel Guzman, and Senior Remote DBA Max Bubenick will speak on topics ranging from MySQL performance, TokuDB, and best operational practices for database backup and data recovery. At TechMeetup v2014, Percona Consultant Fernando Ipar will lead workshops focused on Big Data Analytics and using the Go programming language. Percona is sponsoring both of these events so visit us at our booths.
We’re looking forward to meeting many users of Percona software as well as some of our customers. If you’re at these events, keep a look out for our team in the Percona shirts.
