FOSDEM slides ok, but where are your slides from PLUK?

As usual, you can find the slides from PLUK 2013 and FOSDEM 2014 on [Plus].
You have just to access to the slides page and free up some time to discover and read all the referenced content.

Remember the programs of these fantastic events :

Now, I’ve just discovered that many slides are missing for PLUK 2013 on the perconalive website.

For latecomers, it’s still time to upload your slides from your dedicated speaker page.
Please, do it quickly, the attendees, the community, the committee and myself will be grateful to enjoy your slides!

First, I would like to thanks David, Ivan, Todd, Kenny and Ben for their fantastic work!

And of course a lot of fun!

Secondly, I would like to thanks all of you who submitted a talk.
We received a considerable amount of excellent talks from fantastic speakers.

Congrats to all selected speakers, I’m looking forward to see your shows!

I hope you’ll enjoy our choices, we promise a good vibe and quality talks.
I’m convinced that we will have an amazing conference again this year.

Percona Live London, emerge from the shadows, submit your talk before September 8th!

Those who regularly read this blog knows how much I am excited about Percona Live London each year. Now, it is time for me to take part in the organization of this event as a member of the committee and chairman of the conference.

I am really proud to join the committee this year and very happy to share this role with Ivan, Ben, David, Todd and Kenny.

You can imagine that I am honored that Percona has made me this beautiful gift.
Now, we face the challenges!

I am also very pleased to introduce myself as a member of this committee as an employee of Dailymotion. ‘Cause Dailymotion offers me an incredible chance to do my job with passion and fun, like never before.

When I started this blog I wanted to do it as honestly as possible and as humbly as possible.
And I wanted to keep the same mindset when I started MYXPLAIN.net with Max.
I’ll naturally jump into this adventure with the same beliefs and with the same independence.

As members of the committee, we will have the difficult task of selecting talks and tutorials.
Call for papers is still open and runs until September 8th, submit your talk or tutorial now and enjoy a free pass!

If you are using MySQL, you might have something to say. Tell us about your life, it’s more interesting than you think.
I would love to see some new faces this year, I would like to see renewed talks and to see companies that we didn’t see in the last edition.
Also, sessions about MongoDB, Hadoop, TokuDB, Redis, ES and other open source associated technologies are welcome.

Be sure that the real life story issued from your real DBA life will fit perfectly in the conference schedule and hit the bull’s eye.

Emerge from the shadows, come on and join the community!

Now, we can work hard to provide a great conference but this work will be in vain without attendee.
Did you know that you can still enjoy a special price for the conference until September 15th?
