Looking for a great opportunity to share your MySQL knowledge with the MySQL community? Here is your chance.

Percona is happy to announce that the dates of the Percona Live MySQL London Conference have been set for Dec. 3-4, 2012. Call for speakers is underway and will be open until August 17th, 2012. The conference committee will review proposals that fit into the likely conference tracks of:

  • Developing Applications
  • Database Administration
  • Trends in Architecture and Design
  • Tools
  • Utilizing Hardware
  • New Features
  • Best Practices for Businesses
  • Replication
  • High Availability Strategies

Each session is 50 minutes in length, including a Q&A period.

The conference will also include tutorial sessions. Tutorials should present immediate and practical applications of in-depth MySQL knowledge targeted at a level between a training class and a conference breakout session. Tutorials are three or six hours in length including a Q&A period.

When I design talks for conferences like Percona Live, my goal is to give the audience some new and practical technical knowledge.  I want them to leave after my talk saying, “I can’t wait to get back to my office and try that.”

Other types of talks are great, too.  A talk can show the results of some deep benchmarking, or discuss internals that give insight into how to optimize or troubleshoot a given scenario.  A success story can present how a particular project approached a problem, and how they used a particular combination of technology to good effect.  Another can demo some new solution in development, giving attendees a preview of things to come.

All of these types of talks are welcome at Percona Live, and that’s what makes these events the type where attendees have a hard time deciding which room to be in, and how they can get more of their colleagues to attend.  So join up now, and submit a speaker proposal!

Comments

  1. Is the first day for tutorials and the second for talks?

  2. What Henrik asked. Putting my weight to his question.

  3. Kortney Runyan says:

    Yes, the first day Dec 3rd, will be tutorials followed by a day of 50 minute breakout sessions on Dec 4th.

  4. Andy Bryant says:

    Why the date clash with UKOUG?

  5. Kortney Runyan says:

    London is a very popular location this year so finding a adequate venue to host the conference isn’t as easy as it would seem. Between finding space available and the winter holidays this was the only option in terms of dates.

  6. It does clash with the UKOUG, but having gone there once, I can tell you that:
    1) There is only 1 MySQL stream
    2) Most of the slots on it have already been taken up by Oracle sales people
    3) MySQL is more to suit the curiosity for Oracle DBAs.

    However, you may get a chance to meet Cary Millsap, which is quite cool.
