CentOS Dojo Santa Clara

CentOS Dojo is a one day event kicking off the Percona Live MySQL Conference and Expo. This FREE event is meant to bring people from the CentOS Communities together to talk about systems administration, best practices and emerging technologies. The emphasis is to find local speakers and tutors to come together and talk about things that they care about most, and to share stories from their experiences working with CentOS in various scenarios. Attendance is limited to 75 people to ensure there are plenty of opportunities for everyone to interact and establish social connections to carry the conversations through the future. View the list of confirmed speakers below.

Join us from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm on Monday, March 31st at the The Santa Clara Convention Center at 5101 Great America Parkway, Santa Clara, CA in Room 203. Registration for the Open Source Appreciation Day event “CentOS Dojo” includes a free Expo Hall and Keynote Pass for the Percona Live MySQL Conference and Expo. Please register for only one of the Open Source Appreciation Day events - CentOS Dojo or OpenStack Today - as space is limited for both events.
