Have fun in 2013!
Percona Live London 2012 was again a great event.
You can find some of the slides on [Plus], enjoy! :
If you would like to add your slides, post a comment with the link.
There will be at least 3 MySQL events that you shouldn’t miss by the end of the year :
I suggest you to register right now to gain a super saver registration discounts.
And it is also time to book your hotel/flight to take advantage of cheaper rates.
I don’t want to (re)write a detailled post about these great conferences, see my last post about Percona Live London 2011 :
However, let me introduce my favorite sessions (those that appear to be relevant and interesting) :
MySQL Connect :
Percona Live New York :
Percona Live London :
These choices are my own and are often difficult, give us yours !
I’ll be at Percona Live London and I look forward to meeting you.
I’m sure you’re all listening about what is happening at the MySQL annual conference (no ? really ?)
So, you can find bellow all the slides from the MySQL Conference & Expo 2012 :

I don’t want to debate about the next MySQL Conference here, you can find a great summary post here :
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
whose the next summit will be the 24th & 25th of October and explain why you should go there (But it’s just an advice) Percona Live MySQL Conference
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 )
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…
