Opening Keynote: The Changing MySQL Ecosystem

12 November 09:00am - 09:15am
This year is the tenth anniversary of our gathering as a community to discuss and guide the direction of the MySQL ecosystem. With the release of MySQL 5.6, the increasing need for performance, the demand for big data support, and the question of the cloud, 2013 brings opportunity for an enormous leap in innovation. In his keynote, Peter Zaitsev gives his perspective on the state of the MySQL Ecosystem by discussing what we have collectively accomplished to date and where key MySQL technology trends are leading us in the future.
