Percona Live London wrapped up last week to very positive reviews from attendees and sponsors like those from Johan De Meersman.

Percona was pleased to provide an engaging event for MySQL community members that featured engaging tutorials, highly rated breakout sessions, a very well-attended Tuesday community networking reception sponsored by Clustrix, and keynotes from a variety of industry experts:

  • Peter Zaitsev, Percona
  • Monty Widenius, Monty Program Ab
  • Robert Hodges, Continuent
  • Frank Terburg, Clustrix

We were pleased to see such a varied and all inclusive group of MySQL community members in attendance. A few facts about the attendees:

  • 52% were from the United Kingdom and 35% were from other parts of Europe that included representatives from countries including Finland, The Netherlands, France, Germany, Italy, Sweden, Austria, Lebanon, and Malta. Other nations represented included Russia, Estonia, Turkey, Lithuania, and Malaysia
  • 20% were from software companies, 8% were from telecommunications companies, 7% were from eCommerce businesses, and 4% were from companies in the financial services industry. Other industries represented included media, retail, entertainment, mobile technology, education, hospitality, social networking, biotechnology, and healthcare.
  • 45% of attendees were from companies with 51 to 500 employees, 37% were from companies with 50 or fewer employees, and 10% were from companies with more than 5,000 employees, and 8% were from companies with 501 to 5,000 employees.

Percona Live events are made exceptional by the great variety and quality of speakers and the enthusiasm and diversity of the MySQL community attendees. Thanks to everyone who attended Percona Live London 2012 – we look forward to another great event in London in 2013.

Our next Percona Live event is the annual Percona Live MySQL Conference & Expo at the Santa Clara Convention Center from April 22nd through the 25th, 2013.

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. You can check out my thoughts on marketing open source solutions on my blog at www.opensourcesoftware.marketing.


  • Happened to come across this while looking for the PLUK slides – didn’t realise my quick note would’ve been picked up, thanks 🙂

    On a related note, I’ve been browsing through the lineup for the Santa Clara event, and seeing as how it’s unlikely that I’ll manage to scrounge a ticket off work, I have a single “feature request” for PLUK’13: please please please get the talk about bitmap differential backups to London for the next edition? 🙂

    I guess I’ll see you lot in December again!
