MySQL gurus from Oracle, Facebook, Google, LinkedIn, Twitter, Yelp (and more) have submitted papers and will speak at the third annual Percona Live MySQL Conference and Expo 2014 in sunny Santa Clara, California this coming April 1-4.

If you attended last April’s Percona Live MySQL Conference and Expo – and/or last month’s Percona Live London 2013 conference – then you understand the value of learning from some of the world’s best and brightest system architects and developers. So you might want to consider registering now and take advantage of Early Bird discount pricing (ends January 5).  Like last year, the event will be held at the Hyatt Regency Santa Clara and Santa Clara Convention Center.

The full conference agenda for Percona Live 2014 will be announced next month – but I’m pleased to share the initial speaker roster – and you’ll probably agree that the list of speakers and topics are impressive:

Each Percona Live MySQL conference seems to be bigger and better – and this coming April’s event promises to be the best one yet thanks to the hard work of the awesome Conference Committee, which is comprised of a distinguished array of industry veterans:

•    Shlomi Noach, Conference Chairman, Engineer, Outbrain
•    Roland Bouman, Software Engineer, Pentaho
•    Tim Callaghan, VP of Engineering, Tokutek
•    Laine Campbell, CEO and Principal, PalominoDB
•    Jeremy Cole, Senior Systems Engineer, Google, Inc.
•    Todd Farmer, Director, Oracle
•    Jay Janssen, Consulting Lead, Percona
•    Giuseppe Maxia, QA Director, Continuent
•    Cédric Peintre, DBA, Dailymotion
•    Ivan Zoratti, CTO, SkySQL Ab
•    Liz van Dijk, Head of Technical Account Management, Percona

We also have room for additional sponsorship opportunities, a rare opportunity to interact with more than 1,000 DBAs, sysadmins, developers, CTOs, CEOs, business managers, technology evangelists, solutions vendors, and entrepreneurs from all over the world right in the heart of Silicon Valley.

Hope to see you in April!

  1. Bob Barker says:

    Why the same committee each year? Community should vote on proposals and committee should just work schedule,etc.

  2. We are thrilled to have back some of our veteran committee members yet at the same time, we are thrilled to have a good number of new faces on the committee as well! Cedric Peintre from Dailymotion, Todd Farmer from Oracle, Tim Callaghan from Tokutek and Liz Van Dijk from Percona are all new members on this conference committee. Working through all the submissions and coming up with a schedule is no easy task. It is basically a second job to anyone who sits on the committee. Having the community as a whole in charge of voting and putting together the schedule is highly unfeasible. This is why we have such a array of committee members stretching across the community. They are working hard to provide the whole MySQL community with the best conference possible.

    With all that said, we are always looking for new members to serve on the committee. Interested or want to nominate someone? Email me with the details! kortney.runyan@percona.com
