This Week in Data with Colin Charles #6: Open Source Summit and Percona Live Europe

Colin CharlesJoin Percona Chief Evangelist Colin Charles as he covers happenings, gives pointers and provides musings on the open source database community.

What a long, packed week! Spent most of it at Open Source Summit North America, while still enjoying the myriad phone calls and meetings you have as a Perconian. In addition to two talks, I also gave a webinar this week on the differences between MySQL and MariaDB (I’ll post a blog Q&A in the near future).

Have you registered for Percona Live Europe Dublin? If no, what’s keeping you from doing so?

In addition, I think it’s definitely worth registering for the community dinner. You can hang out with other like-minded folks, and see the lightning talks (we may announce more as time gets closer).

See what the MySQL Team will speak about at Percona Live Dublin. You’ll notice that a few of the releases I mention below have Percona Live Europe talks associated with them.

On a somber note, former Perconian and all round great community member, Jaakko Pesonen passed away. Shlomi Noach commented online: Remembering Jaakko Pesonen.

I look forward to feedback/tips via e-mail at or on Twitter @bytebot.
