Announcing Percona Training Workshops for InnoDB and XtraDB

 | August 4, 2009 |  Posted In: Events and Announcements


Today, we are announcing that we’re ready to offer training for InnoDB and XtraDB in Santa Clara and San Francisco.  The course was developed by Morgan Tocker with input from all our team – and covers a lot of the performance problems we run through in our consulting practice.

The Details:

14th Sept – Santa Clara
1 day intensive course
Cost: $300*

16th Sept – San Francisco
1 day intensive course
Cost: $300*

(* includes a copy of High Performance MySQL if you register before 31st Aug).

The delivery format:

Being only one day, we elected to deliver the course in a predominately lecture-format – but there will be a few opportunities to try examples.  For more information see the Percona Website.

Get a Free ticket!
We’re giving away the first two tickets to readers of our blog.  To enter, send an email to contest[at]percona.com or Twitter @Percona before August 10th to explain what your favorite Percona patch is and why. Yasufumi Kinoshita has kindly accepted to be our judge – which should make things interesting!

  • Are you going to do this somethere in Europe? I would really like to attend and not only learn, but also disscuss some things 🙂 I’m really interensted in you and your company and it’s future 🙂

  • @Jeffrey – Glad to hear! You can sign up from https://www.percona.com/training/performance-optimization-for-mysql-with-innodb-and-xtradb.html

    @jonathan – entry noted.

    @Psih – We picked SF/Bay Area because it’s a renowned technology hub, and we have a presence there. It’s possible that we might have future events in Europe, but in the mean time you could also consider private training classes – https://www.percona.com/training

  • Sounds awesome, but it might be easier to justify the trip to my employer if there was at least a couple days of content. Any probability of this happening in the near future?

  • @MLBR – There are a couple of days of content – it’s an intensive course 😉

    Jokes aside – we expect most of our audience will be local. If you have another location in mind, feel free to let us know so we can add it to our demand list.

  • @Salim – Both courses starts at 8:30 am, with registration and then Peter Zaitsev keynoting. The official finish time is 5:00pm, with Open Q&A to follow (Open Q&A must finish by 6:00pm so we can vacate the room).

    It’s pretty quick to get from San Francisco -> SFO or Santa Clara -> SJC. You should be able to get a red eye flight back.

  • @Jonathan – yes we have, with both winners have been notified. One is yet to respond – I was hoping to have this information before writing another post to announce.
