If you attended last April’s Percona Live MySQL Conference and Expo in Santa Clara, you know it was a rare opportunity to learn from some of the most accomplished system architects and developers in the business. Now it’s time to give back.
Your participation is an opportunity to make a difference. After all, the conference would be meaningless without great content. So step up and volunteer to present your unique insights into MySQL and MySQL-related technologies either as a keynote, tutorial or breakout session.
Tell us your war story: What have you experienced while actively using MySQL, Percona Server, MariaDB, Drizzle or (fill in the blank) in production? Are you managing multiple environments? Are you working with MySQL or its variants at the code level? Share your perspective about the internals or explain how specific features work in depth. These stories are gold! And you owe it to the MySQL community to share them.
Don’t worry about being fancy. Some of the most popular talks have been on simple topics done well. Many people come to the conferences to learn — and we need content for MySQL newcomers as well as the veterans.
We’re also looking for sponsors. This is the showcase event for Europe’s growing MySQL community of developers, business managers, technology evangelists, DBAs and entrepreneurs. Download the prospectus and take a closer look at the benefits of sponsorship.
Questions? Let me know in the comments section. I look forward to hearing from you!
