Our company, Percona is even more Virtual than MySQL AB – we have no offices and 100% of staff members work out of their homes (or traveling, onsite with customers etc).

A total of 60 people gathered at the Grand Palladium Resort & Spa on the Maya Riviera. 39 were Percona employees and 21 were family and guests.
