Taboola and Percona Host a Meetup in Tel Aviv, Oct 3

Percona Taboola Meetup in Tel Aviv

Percona Taboola Meetup in Tel AvivFrom time to time, Percona hosts and co-hosts events around the world, often at no cost for attendees. The common focus for these events is, of course, open source databases. On October 3 2018, we team up with Taboola for an evening of talks suitable for all levels of expertise, addressing both the how and the why of choosing a database technology. The event is to be held at the Taboola offices in Tel Aviv. Here’s the schedule:

  • 6:00 pm Welcome with food & drink served
  • 6:45 pm How to pick database technologies that cover your requirements (Dimitri Vanoverbeke, Percona)
  • 7:20 pm Lessons from the field, extremely heavy loads on Percona Server for MySQL (Ariel Pisetzky, Taboola)
  • 7:40 pm Migrating to the cloud, the why and the how. (Dimitri Vanoverbeke, Percona)
  • 8:00 pm Event close

If you would like to join us, please sign up here so that we can be sure to cater for you.

Meanwhile, if you have not yet bought your tickets for Percona Live Europe from November 5 – 7 in Frankfurt, then hurry… I have extended Early Bird pricing one week. We’ll be publishing the exciting, high quality schedule soon so watch out for it! (But don’t miss the Early Bird…)

Finally, if you would like to be sure to not miss our future events, please subscribe to our newsletter–we don’t necessarily blog about every opportunity.

Peter Zaitsev’s Speaking Schedule: Percona University Belgium / PG Day / Meetups

Peter Zaitsev Speaking Schedule

This blog shows Peter Zaitsev’s speaking schedule for this summer.

Summer 2017 Speaking Engagements

This week I spoke at the DB Tech Showcase OSS conference in Japan and am now heading to Europe. I have a busy schedule in June and early July, but there are events and places where we can cross paths and have a quick conversation. Let’s meet at these events if you need anything from Percona (or me personally). 

Below is a full list of places I’ll be at this summer:

Amsterdam, Netherlands

On June 20 I am speaking at the In-Memory Computing Summit 2017 with Denis Magda (Product Manager, Gridgain Systems). Our talk “Accelerate MySQL® for Demanding OLAP and OLTP Use Cases with Apache® Ignite™” starts at 2:35 pm.

On the same day in Amsterdam, Denis and I will speak at the local MySQL User Group meetupI will share some how-tos for MySQL monitoring with Percona Monitoring and Management (PMM), along with a PMM demo.

Ghent, Belgium

On June 22 we are organizing a Percona University event in Ghent, Belgium, which is a widely known tech hub in the region. I will give several talks there on MySQL, MongoDB and PMM monitoring. Dimitri Vanoverbeke from Percona will discuss MySQL in the Cloud. We have also invited guest speakers: Frederic Descamps from Oracle, and Julien Pivotto from Inuits.

Percona University technical events are 100% free to attend, and so far we are getting very positive attendee feedback on them. To check the full agenda for the Belgium edition, and to register, please use this link.

St. Petersburg, Russia

Percona is sponsoring PG Day’17 Russia, the PostgreSQL conference. This year they added a track on open source databases (and I was happy to be their Committee member for the OSDB track). The conference starts on July 5, and on that day I will give a tutorial on InnoDB Architecture and Performance Optimization. Sveta Smirnova will also present a tutorial on MySQL Performance Troubleshooting.

On July 6-7, you can expect four more talks given by Perconians at PG Day. We invite you to stop by our booth (“Percona”) and ask us any tough questions you might have.

Moscow, Russia

On July 11 I will speak at a Moscow MySQL User Group meetup at the Mail.Ru Group office. While we’re still locking down the agenda, we always have a great selection of speakers at the MMUG meetups. Make sure you don’t miss this gathering!

Thank you, and I hope to see many of you at these events.

Training Updates

I wanted to provide an update on two things:

  • Firstly, we have opened registration for InnoDB/XtraDB training in Los Angeles (Nov 18th).
  • The second is that while I am in New York City for training (Oct 29th), I’ll be giving a (free) talk at the MySQL Meetup group there (Oct 28th).

We love to speak at Meetup groups.  If you are an organizer feel free to let us know you are interested.  There’s no guarantee that we can get schedules to align – but there are a number of Percona consultants that travel regularly.
