Peter from Percona presented last month (thanks Peter!) and let us know about the upcoming MySQL conference, and I'm here to remind you again that it's almost here. It seems O'Reilly, who used to produce the conference, isn't doing it anymore, and Percona has stepped up to manage the conference.
If you're using MySQL in your company, you owe it to yourself to go. If not this year, maybe next, but I'm sure this year will be good. I went a couple years back and was truly blown away by the level of talent, skill, knowledge and general awesome of the conference and speakers, and this year doesn't look to be any different. Same awesome, just run by Percona now.
April 10-12 - just a few weeks away. Again, if you're doing MySQL a lot for your company, or know someone who is, pass this along - the ROI you'll get from even just a few sessions will justify the pretty low conference expense. I've been to other similar "big name" conferences costing twice as much, and nothing gave me as much concentrated, real world day-to-day ROI as the MySQL conference did.
