Ronald Ramon Francisco (Twitter Inc), Jojo Antonio (Twitter Inc) delivers the talk, "MySQL at Twitter: No More Forkin' - Migrating to MySQL Community version", on DAY 1 of the Percona Live Open Source Database Conference 2018, 4/24, at Santa Clara, CA.

Twitter has been using their own fork of MySQL for many years. Last year the team decided to migrate to the community version of MySQL 5.7 and abandoned their own version. The road to the community version was full of challenges.

In this session, we will present the motivation and how we came out with the decision. We will also discuss the challenges and surprises encountered and how we overcome them. Finally, we will talk about the lessons learned, recommendations and our future plans.
