What I loved about Percona Live 2011- By Sean Hull

Last year I was excited to go to Percona Live for the first time in NYC. I arrived just in time to hear Harrison Fisk from Facebook speak about some of the awesome tweaks they're running with MySQL there. It's not everyday that you get to hear from top MySQL engineers how they're using the technology and what their biggest challenges are. If they can make MySQL hum, so can the rest of us!

Afterward, outside in the foyer, I ran into all sorts of luminaries in the MySQL space. Percona folks like Peter Zaitsev & Vadim Tkachenko, plus other big names like Baron Schwartz, Harrison, and Ronald Bradford. I ran into people from firms like Yahoo, Google, Daniweb, Pythian, SkySQL & Palomino.

This years event next month features rockstar engineers from an incredible lineup of firms including Etsy, New Relic, Youtube, Paypal, Tumblr, SugarCRM, Square, and of course a few from Percona themselves. I promise you this, these talks won't be salesy or in any way a waste of your time and money. They will be thoroughly technical talks, with cutting edge insights and advice from those in the trenches using the technology everyday. 

If I wasn't heading to Oracle Open World for the publishers seminar & MySQL Connect, I would most certainly be there. In fact I had originally been slated to talk about point-in-time recovery in MySQL. Oh well, I'm sure I'll catch you at the Percona Live in April 2013.
