In preparing for this month’s Percona Live MySQL Conference and Expo, I’ve been reminiscing about the annual MySQL User Conference’s history – the 9 times it previously took place in its various reincarnations – and there are a lot of good things, fun things to remember. 2003 was the year that marked the first MySQL user conference […]
Just a reminder that I will be giving a talk “Percona XtraDB Cluster” on coming San Francisco MySQL Meetup, next Wednesday, March-21, 2012. Along with talk I will give away one full ticket (tutorials + sessions + expo hall) to Percona Live MySQL User Conference 2012 and three copies our new book “High Performance MySQL, […]
MySQL can be deployed in several ways, and that means you can choose a tailor-made path that best meets your needs. With simple services or development systems, many people are using a single server with some backups configured, and then simply take the downtime when a restore is needed.

This is my 10th year attending and speaking at the MySQL Users Conference (as the Percona Live MySQL Conference and Expo was originally called back in 2003), and for me it does not get tiring.

If you’re following PlanetMySQL you’ve already seen Baron’s post about MySQL Conference which many of us just have returned from. It was great event as well as 5 conferences I’ve been before that, though however it more and more becomes MySQL marketing channel and business event rather than Users Conference as it originated.

Percona, the company maintaining MySQL Performance Blog has a good presence on the conference this year. We have me (Peter), Vadim, Aurimas, Baron and Andrew attending the show. Alexey had to stay because he could not get Visa in time and Maciek is staying to be able to reliably service emergencies arising with our customers.
Guess what ? I also will be speaking at MySQL Users Conference 2008, which is always excited. According to session schedule I’ll have one talk about Innodb Scalability Limits and another one together with Andrew Aksenoff about Sphinx. Looking back at Proposals (+1) I’m surprised only one talk was chosen and also this particular one. […]
