Technologists and technology decision makers of all types, and of all experience levels, are encouraged to join and participate. Being inclusive is a core principle and one we strongly believe in.

- Modern Database Best Practices + Networking & Swag!4205 S Miami Blvd, Durham, NC
Our December meetup will be extra special as it's our last one of 2023. We'll do lots of giveaways and do some really special things. Food and beverages will also be available.
The topic is one that is highly applicable to nearly everyone - Modern Database Best Practices. Most in the tech industry, regardless of experience level, directly works with or depends on a database, so this topic/talk is extremely applicable and relevant.
The speaker is also a good friend of ATO and one of the top database experts on planet earth - Peter Zaitsev, Founder of Percona. We treasure any opportunity to hear from Peter as he is truly world-class.
The meetup will take place at IBM in the RTP. Special thanks to the IBM team for hosting us!
