Have you registered for Percona Live already? The tutorial grid, the schedules for day 1 and day 2 are pretty amazing, and there is even an extra track being added, for a total of 10 concurrent/parallel tracks during day 1 & day 2. If you submitted a talk and it didn’t get accepted (competition was high), you should have received a discount code to register for the event.

I plan to write more dedicated blog posts around M|18 and the MariaDB Developer’s Unconference. Hang on till next week? I gave my presentation, targeted at developers, titled MySQL features missing in MariaDB Server. It was a room of maybe 40-45 people, and had some debate, but not much more; there were some other excellent presentations as well.

Next week, Percona will be at SCALE16x. We are sponsors, so there will also be a booth (where you can get some interesting schwag), and don’t forget that both Peter Zaitsev and I have a talk (one on Friday, the other on Saturday). Looking forward to seeing you all there.
