Welcome to Percona Live 2019 keynotes, day one!

Percona Live 2019 is up and running! We call this day one, but in reality, yesterday was filled with tutorials that provided excellent and practical information on how to get your MySQL, MongoDB, MariaDB, and PostgreSQL environments up, running, and optimized.

Today we started with keynote presentations from Percona, Facebook, MariaDB Foundation, PingCAP, and Amazon.  Watch the recording here. Later in the day, we continued our keynotes with a Panel discussion, Amazon AWS, and MySQL Community Awards. You can watch the recording here.

MariaDB 10.4, Where We Are Now
Vicentiu Ciorbaru – MariaDB Foundation

MariaDB Server has come a long way since it forked MySQL in 2009. Nine releases later, it is now default in most major Linux distributions no longer a mere alternative to MySQL, but to Oracle, through its compatibility mode with support for PL/SQL and other non-MySQL functionality. MariaDB Foundation has also matured since it was established in 2012. With board members from MariaDB Corporation, Visma,, IBM, Automattic, Tencent, and Microsoft, MariaDB Foundation has created a vibrant community of contributors, with the number of submitted pull requests being four times that of MySQL over their respective lifetimes. Join MariaDB Foundation Senior Team Lead Vicentiu Ciorbaru for this keynote, where he compares the mission of MariaDB Foundation with its achievements and highlights the latest contributions and functionality in its freshest stable release, 10.4.
