Percona will have 14 members of our team at next week’s O’Reilly MySQL Conference in California. Drop by and meet us at booth 308 (for Percona) or 216 (for Maatkit). Bring your technical questions and problems to our experts. To make it easier for you to meet specific Perconians, check this Google calendar for when each consultant should be present at the booth. (Hint: use Agenda view.) We’ll be talking at 23 sessions, tutorials, or BOFs. Check here if you want to see when Percona’s speakers are scheduled to be on stage. We look forward to seeing our friends face to face each year in Santa Clara. Please introduce yourself and say hello!
