The call for participation for Percona Live Data Performance Conference 2016 is still open. Deadline for submission is November 29th.
There are two immediately noticeable novelties in this edition:
- The name change. Not "MySQL & Expo" but "Data Performance Conference." It makes the conference open to a broader set of topics.
- The community voting. Proposals can get evaluated by the community before the review committee takes decisions.
I think it's a good choice. Other conferences adopt the same method. The attendees choose what they want to see and hear. In this case, it's mixed method, where the community voting is used as an indication for the review committee, which, by my understanding, has the final say.
Vote for my proposals!
Below are my proposals. Clicking on the links below will take you to the conference site, where you can say if you want to see these talks or not. You will need to register (to the site, not yet to the conference) in order to cast votes.
Here is a talk that is in continuous evolution. It discusses the latest advances in replication, and gives an honest evaluation of the features from a new user standpoint. This talk, if accepted, will be updated with the latest novelties in MariaDB and MySQL, if they come out in time for the conference. You can see in my blog six articles covering related matters.
Another tutorial, this one aimed at users of containers who want to get started with this exciting technology. Also for this topic I have written a few articles.
This is a short talk that wants to explain the differences between deployment methods. Standalone physical servers, sandboxes, virtual machines, and containers are choices that require some information to get started. This talk, for which I also wrote an article, wants to show the good and bad of each choice.
This is a lightning talk, which is not about data performance, but it's a geeky topic and I was asked to submit it. So here it is!
