I don’t want to debate about the next MySQL Conference here, you can find a great summary post here : http://rpbouman.blogspot.com/2011/08/regarding-mysql-conference-and-expo.html
But just consider the Robert’s point of view which I fully agree with : Why not put the energy into organizing a Fall 2012 MySQL Community Conference in Europe ?
I just want to talk about the Percona Live MySQL Conference whose the next summit will be the 24th & 25th of October and explain why you should go there (But it’s just an advice)
MySQL is not only a product owned by Oracle, this is a great community, and this community provides some of the best informations about MySQL and its ecosystem.
You can read every days a lot of useful informations and tips about MySQL and these informations are provided by the community.
So, let me explain why the Percona Live is a great place to be :
- There are several conferences almost all over the world : NY, Santa Clara, San Francisco, London and more to come !
- ( I just would like to say that this is not a “San Francisco” only conference, thanks to Percona for that ! )
- You can easily spend two days for a conference close to you ( and so don’t give up your job and your family for a long time )
- This is an easy way to meet other members of the MySQL Community
- These others members work close to you. You can easily keep in touch after the conference ( and you must do it ! )
- You can meet people behind the blogs you read every days
- There isn’t only speakers from Percona but speakers from some of the most innovative companies with MySQL
- Be sure that the tutorial and conference will be at a very high level
- And finally, the price is really affordable ( but not the hotel in London, sorry )
- Your comments…
Be sure that I write this post independently and without ever having attended such a conference.
Just read here my expectations about the next Percona Live in London.
Glad to meet you there !
Stay tuned for my feeling after the conference…
