I’m excited by all of the recent developments surrounding the Percona Live MySQL Conference and Expo! Our own Baron Schwartz will moderate the Diamond Keynote Panel entitled “Future Perfect: The Road Ahead for MySQL” which will feature a panel of MySQL industry leaders, including: Sundar Raghavan, director product management at Amazon; Paul Mikesell, CEO of Clustrix; a representative from HP; and, a representative from McAfee. The Diamond Sponsor Keynote Panel will take place at 9:30 a.m. on Thursday, April 12th and provide insight into the future of MySQL technology, adoption, and the ecosystem landscape. I am also very pleased to introduce two new sponsors including McAfee which recently joined as a Diamond Sponsor and AOL which recently agreed to participate as a lunch sponsor.

We also recently announced the Birds of a Feather Sessions which will take place on Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. and Wednesday at 9:00 p.m. BOFs enable attendees with the same project or topic interests to enjoy some quality face time. Topics include “Query Optimization”, “MySQL and Ruby on Rails”, “MySQL in the Cloud”, and much more.

We also published the list of Lightning Talks, a series of five-minute speaking opportunities during which attendees will propose, explain, exhort, and rant on a variety of MySQL-related topics. The one-hour Lightning Talks session will take place at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday night during the Community Networking Reception. Topics include “The Five Minute Tour of Drizzle”, “How to Design a Scalable System”, and “How to Become a Rockstar DBA”.

The Percona Live MySQL Conference and Expo promises to be a great event! If you already registered, I look forward to seeing you in Santa Clara next week. If you haven’t registered but plan to attend, register now using discount code PerLiveSC and receive 10% off your registration fees.

I joined Percona as Chief Marketing Officer in 2011. I've been marketing high tech software and services worldwide for over 20 years including open source solutions since 1999. Prior to Percona, I was the first marketing person for DotNetNuke, the leading open source web content management system for .NET. While at Percona (#1566 in 2013 and #2187 in 2014), DotNetNuke (#228 in 2010), and CaseCentral (#450 in 2004), each company was named to the Inc. 500/5000.
