Just a couple of announcements for Percona Live: we’re giving away free tickets through Engine Yard, and we’ve arranged our evening open-bar event.
For a chance to win a free ticket, check out the guest blog post I wrote for Engine Yard on how to make Rails migrations faster and safer.
In other news, Percona Live now has an open-bar evening event, sponsored by Clustrix. It is open to all, not just registered attendees of Percona Live. You can come to Mickey Mantle’s legendary Sports Bar and Restaurant for free drinks and food, networking, prizes, and a chance to win an Unlimited Gold MySQL Support contract from Percona, worth over $15,000!
In case you don’t know, Percona Live is a one-day intensive MySQL conference, with four tracks of 100% technical content from world-famous MySQL experts. Tickets are still available at http://www.percona.com/live/. Registration is not required to attend the evening event, so if you can’t attend Percona Live, come meet us afterwards anyway! We’ve arranged for a substantial amount of free food, so you won’t have to leave to find dinner.
The evening event begins at 6pm this Thursday the 26th, and is open-bar (free drinks) until 8pm. Mickey Mantle’s is at 42 Central Park South. From the conference center, just walk west on 59th street. For more information and directions, visit the Percona Live page for venue details.
