You surely have heard about Percona Live,NY taking place October 1-2 in New York, you however might have been wondering what kind of talks you would see on this event and why would should you attend.
The day one of this event is Tutorial day, which is long (half to a full day) presentations which go deep into details and often feature hands on experience. We expect you to attend tutorial on the topic which is highly relevant for your job to significantly increase mastery of the topic. If you work with benchmarking, performance analyses load testing you might want to attend “Understanding Performance through Measurement, Benchmarking and Profiling” . If you’re using Innodb my tutorial on Innodb and XtraDB Architecture and Performance Optimization would likely be very helpful for you. If you’re looking for High Availability solutions with MySQL you should consider attending Percona Replication Manager and DRBD for “traditional” Replication and DRBD based approaches to MySQL high availability or Percona XtraDB Cluster in Practice if you’re interested in brand new approach to MySQL high availability, removing many limitations of existing technologies.
Day Two is a Conference day with many tracks running in parallel with so much content you likely would have hard time choosing which talk to go to. We have talks from developers working on the server code base, developers and DBAs running MySQL in production with extreme performance and availability environments as well as MySQL ecosystem project leaders. You will hear what wonderful features MariaDB 5.5 brings next and what comes next, Hear about practical experiences of upgrading MySQL In production, Learn about one of many ways Facebook uses MySQL. If you’re looking at BigData and NoSQL solutions you will learn how you can build hybrid solutions and use them alongside with MySQL. These are just some of the topics covered… check out full sessions list to learn more.
For me though the conferences are not just about attending sessions but about meeting speakers and your peers in hallways to build connections, exchange your war stories and get your specific questions answered. The conference will provide plenty opportunities for that.
