The Percona Live MySQL Conference & Expo is going to be awesome! Great speakers, an A-list of sponsors, countless opportunities to engage with the community, and an enthusiastic crowd of MySQL users ensure this is going to be a great event. The conference features 72 breakout sessions, keynotes by leading industry luminaries, an optional day of 16 tutorial sessions, a bustling exhibit hall, and numerous opportunities to connect with other community members.

I am pleased to announce the conference Birds of a Feather sessions and Lightning Talks. Birds of a Feather sessions will be Tuesday and Wednesday nights following the evening receptions. Lightning Talks will be Wednesday evening in the Exhibit Hall during the Community Networking Reception. Check the conference schedule for more details on times and locations.

The conference room block at the Hyatt is already sold out and the tutorial sessions, which require preregistration, are filling rapidly. Don’t miss out on this great opportunity to connect with the MySQL community at the largest community gathering in the world.

To sweeten the deal and help convince you to register now rather than two weeks from now, we are pleased to make a special, limited time offer. Register between Thursday March 22nd and midnight PDT on Thursday March 29th and you will be entered in a drawing for:

  • One of three new Kindle Fires
  • One of five copies of the new book High Performance MySQL, 3rd Edition

Don’t miss this special offer – register now at the conference registration website!
