DURHAM, North Carolina – June 11, 2014 – Percona, the company that makes MySQL faster and more reliable, today announced that the Call for Speakers for Percona Live London MySQL Conference 2014 is open and accepting speaker proposals through August 17, 2014. Percona Live London MySQL Conference 2014 will take place November 3-4 at the Millennium Gloucester Conference Center. Sponsorship opportunities are open, and Super Saver Registration discounts are available through July 13, 2014.

This year’s event features new formal tracks, including High Availability, Performance Optimization, Programming, Security, and MySQL in the Cloud. Percona invites proposals for both breakout and tutorial sessions. Breakout sessions are 50 minutes in length including a Q&A. Tutorial sessions are focused on an immediate and practical application of in-depth MySQL knowledge and are targeted at a level between a training class and a conference breakout session. Tutorial speakers should assume that attendees will have laptops to work through detailed and potentially hands-on presentations. Tutorials are typically three hours in length including a Q&A, but submissions will also be accepted for full-day, 6-hour tutorials.

In addition to topics that directly address the formal tracks noted above, the Conference Committee is particularly interested in submissions on the following topics: DevOps, Disaster Recovery, MySQL and NoSQL, MySQL Case Studies, Replication, and Database Administration. Selected speakers will receive a complimentary full conference pass.
