Speaking at HighLoad conference, Moscow, Russia, Training and Hiring

 | September 30, 2011 |  Posted In: Events and Announcements, MySQL


I’m going to be speaking on Highload++ conference October 3,4 in Moscow, Russia. This is a great conference which gathers amazing quality of speakers from Russia and around the world and I usually learn a lot and enjoy talking to a lot of great people on this event.

My talk is going to be about new developments in MySQL Server 5.5, 5.6, Percona Server, MariaDB and Drizzle as it relates to high volume/large scale projects. There is a lot of really cool things happening in MySQL space recently and I would love to share those with you.

I’m also doing a training session 5th of October, which will be in depth training session based on Percona’s Training for MySQL Developers. In fact this is a great learning experience both for MySQL Developers and DBAs and this is unique opportunity to attend this course
given in Russian. Bring your laptop if you have one for more Hands On experience.

If you would like to do business with Percona I will be available for business development and consulting meetings on Thursday and Friday next week.

Finally note We’re Hiring worldwide for most of positions, so if you’re interested joining Percona Team, come and talk to me. We have both technical and non technical positions, in particular we’re looking for Sales and Business Development person in Russia.

Why so late announcement. Ah if you must know I did not know if I will be able to make it until very last minute. My passport was stalled in the British Consulate getting visa to UK for Percona Live London in late October. It is great we could get the documents back in time for my travel.

  • Have a nice time there. Unfortunately I wasn’t as lucky as you. I already announced my going to HighLoad, but the next day I was denied visa because my old passport had started to fall apart. Well, at least I now have time to get a new one before traveling to UK later this month.

    I hope I can come to Highload some other year.
