Oracle? Oracle! We're extremely happy to have Oracle as presenter in Percona Live 2013!
You can expect three sessions by Oracle engineers:
• MySQL 5.6: Performance Benchmarks, Tuning, and Best Practices - Dmitri Kravtchuk
• MySQL 5.6: What’s New in InnoDB - Sunny Bains
• MySQL 5.6: Redefining Replication - Luís Soares
And Tomas Ulin will present the obligatory "State of the Dolphin" keynote.
Skip my part in this conference for the moment; I'm very happy this is happening. For the community this is an obvious gain. I also wish to congratulate both Oracle and Percona for pulling this off; both parties deserve warm words here.
See announcement here.
Birds of a Feather schedule is published. This happens on Tuesday, second day of the conference and first day of conference sessions, 6:00pm to 7:00pm. The BoF sessions are reviewed by the conference committee.
Lightning talks are very short, rapid talks. We have 9 talks, totaling at about one hour. Giuseppe Maxia is orchestrating the talks. The talks are presented during the Community evening, Wednesday, 5:30pm to 8:30pm, where community awards are also presented. Giuseppe will naturally elaborate on that.
For me excitement is quickly building up!
