Percona will be at Southeast Linux Fest tomorrow and Saturday. We’re supporting the event, and we hope to meet you there. If you’ve never been, this is a great regional show that’s grown enormously in the last few years. Peter and I will both be speaking: Peter about optimizing MySQL configuration, and I will talk about inspecting MySQL’s performance and scalability via TCP packet headers.
In addition, the entire Percona Toolkit and Online Tools team (me, Daniel Nichter, Brian Fraser, and Miguel Trias) will be there. This is your perfect opportunity to meet the engineers writing the Percona Toolkit code. Direct access to the developers is a valuable chance to tell us your wishes, explain your gripes or troubles, and get help and advice on how you’re using the tools. We can also tell you what we’re currently working on and what you may expect in future releases. We hope you’ll find us in the halls and say hi! We don’t have a photo of Brian online yet, but here’s me, Daniel, and Miguel:
