Percona University Travels to South America

Percona University April 2019

Percona University April 2019We started hosting Percona University a few years back with the aim of sharing knowledge with the open source database community. The events are held in cities across the world. The next Percona University days will visiting Uruguay, Argentina, and Brazil, in a lightning tour at the end of April.

  • Montevideo, Tuesday, April 23 2019 from 8.30am to 6.30pm
  • Buenos Aires, Thursday, April 25 2019 from 1.30pm to 10.3pm
  • São Paulo, Saturday, April 27 2019 from 9.30am to 7.30pm

What is Percona University?

It is a technical educational event. We encourage people to join us at any point during these talks – we understand that not everyone can take off a half a day from their work or studies. As long as you register – that’s essential.

What is on the agenda for each of the events?

Full agendas and registration forms for the Montevideo, Buenos Aires, and São Paulo events can be accessed at their respective links.

Does the word “University” mean that we won’t cover any in-depth topics, and these events would only interest college/university students?

No, it doesn’t. We designed Percona University presentations for all kinds of “students,” including professionals with years of database industry experience. The word “University” means that this event series is about educating attendees on technical topics (it’s not a sales-oriented event, it’s about sharing knowledge with the community).

Does Percona University cover only Percona technology?

We will definitely mention Percona technology, but we will also focus on real-world technical issues and recommend solutions that work (regardless of whether Percona developed them).

Are there other Percona University events coming up besides these in South America?

We will hold more Percona University events in different locations in the future. Our newsletter is a good source of information about when and where they will occur. If you’d like to partner with Percona in organizing a Percona University event, contact Tom Basil who leads our community team… or Lorraine Pocklington our Community Manager. You can also check our list of technical webinars to get further educational insights.

These events are free and low-key! They aren’t meant to look like a full conference (like our Percona Live series). Percona University has a different format. We make it informal, so it’s designed to be perfect for learning and networking. This is an in-person database community gathering, so feel free to come with interesting cases and tricky questions!


MySQL Webinar: 5 proactive measures to help minimize MySQL downtime, July 17

MySQL Webinar: 5 proactive measures to help minimize MySQL downtime, July 17th. Failure is an unavoidable part of IT life, but it does not always have to imply MySQL service downtime. In the years I have been working at Percona, I have been involved in many customer emergency cases, and I have seen a good number of problems that could have been avoided or alleviated if relatively simple proactive measures were taken.

On July 17th 2013, at 10 a.m. PDT, I will be delivering a webinar focused on presenting the Top 5 such measures, with the objective of helping you assess your current situation, and implement any needed changes to avoid production downtime in the future. The webinar is titled: “5 Proactive Measures to Minimize MySQL Downtime.”

Later that day, I will be delivering the same presentation, but live, and in Spanish, at the Montevideo MySQL Meetup group.  My colleague Martin Arrieta will be presenting and doing a hands-on demo of Percona XtraDB Cluster after my talk there.

MySQL Performance Blog readers in or near Montevideo that day are welcome to join us!

You can sign up for the webinar here, and find more information about the meetup here.
