I’m pleased to announce that Oracle is sending some of their top technical people to speak at the Percona Live MySQL Conference and Expo. The conference takes place April 22-25, 2013 at the Santa Clara Convention Center and Hyatt Santa Clara.

Tomas Ulin, VP, MySQL Engineering for Oracle, will present an invited keynote talk on “Driving MySQL Innovation” during the Tuesday morning opening keynotes. With the recent release of MySQL 5.6, conference attendees will hear about the latest developments of this major MySQL release.

In addition to Tomas, Oracle MySQL technologists will also lead three breakout sessions at the Percona Live MySQL Conference:

• “MySQL 5.6: Performance Benchmarks, Tuning, and ‘Best’ Practices” by Dmitri Kravtchuk, MySQL Performance Architect

• “MySQL 5.6: What’s New in InnoDB” by Sunny Bains, Senior Principal Software Engineer

• “MySQL 5.6: Redefining Replication” by Luís Soares, Senior Software Engineer

Percona has always encouraged participation by all MySQL-related technologies in the Percona Live MySQL Conference and Expo. Over the past two years we have extended invitations to all major ecosystem participants to take part. We are very pleased to welcome Oracle speakers to the conference where they can join the MySQL community conversations and provide more enriching content around MySQL 5.6 and the future of Oracle MySQL.
