Join us for our first Percona MySQL University event in Raleigh, N.C. Jan 29

At Percona we focus on education a lot, which we believe is critical for us to be successful with our mission of making businesses successful with their use of MySQL. The MySQL Performance Blog, our first effort in this space, by now contains over 1,000 technical articles. We have spoken on countless conferences and Meetups and have published our knowledge in our “High Performance MySQL” book. We answer your questions on our forums, and host free technical Webinars. And for more intense MySQL educational experiences we offer MySQL Training and facilitate knowledge exchange at our Percona Live Conferences.

As if it were not enough, we’re adding another way for our community to learn more about MySQL and Percona products and to meet some of the Percona Team: Introducing “Percona MySQL University.”

Percona MySQL University is a single-day, one-track technical event which we plan to run in various locations across the U.S. and around the world with speakers from the Percona Team and the local MySQL community. These events will be free or very low cost so it should be easy for you to attend them.

We believe the Percona MySQL University events can fill the gap between MySQL meetups and Percona Live Conferences. The full-day format will allow for deeper immersion and more learning and networking opportunities, while the smaller single-track format will allow us to keep these events accessible and run them in the city closest to you.

As the title says we’re running our first Percona MySQL University event in Raleigh, N.C. on January 29th. We welcome you to attend and spread the world. Remember to register early as we have limited space available!

  1. Hi Peter, did you all think up Percona University in parallel with our Tungsten University at Continuent? We didn’t mean to copy you :) I guess there’s a plethora of good learning in the works this year. Cheers, Robert

  2. Yep. What a coincidence. I guess we all get inspiration from MySQL University which was popular education series back in the day.

    Congratulations !

    Eagerly waiting for this kind of event in Europe…. How possible would it be Finland for at least one University event this year ?

  4. Rajib,
