Thank you to everyone who attended Percona MySQL University in Raleigh, N.C. We had a great turnout and a lot of positive feedback!

What’s next for Percona MySQL University? Next week we’re going to hold events in Montevideo and Buenos Aires which are gathering significant local interest!

In March we’re focusing on Toronto – We’ll be having a team meeting and running an event at the same time to ensure that we have some great speakers available.

As such we’re looking for venue in Toronto to hold this Free MySQL Educational event. If you can host or can recommend a venue, give us a heads up.

Our requirement is essentially a single room with a projector hookup which can hold 100-150 people for a full day at a convenient local location.
Local universities or companies which may have a large enough meeting space have been a great fit for us in the past.

Please comment below if you are able to host or have some ideas on venues!
