Percona Live NYC 2011 takes place May 26th, 2011 at 111 E 59th St in New York (between Park Ave. & Lexington). Percona Live is an ongoing series of regional MySQL conferences hosted by Percona, the largest and oldest independent provider of MySQL support and consulting services. MySQL is the world's most popular open-source database. It powers high-traffic sites such as YouTube and Facebook, as well as playing a mission-critical role in telecommunications, government, and finance applications. MySQL is the M in the LAMP stack acronym (Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP), and is usually chosen as the data store for popular frameworks such as Drupal, Ruby On Rails, Wordpress, and Django. MySQL is frequently used together with technologies such as MongoDB (the most popular NoSQL database for web applications), and the open-source Memcached caching technology, also a core part of Facebook's infrastructure.
Percona Live is an intensive one-day format with four concurrent sessions from recognized experts in the MySQL ecosystem. Speakers include Percona's consulting staff and hand-picked guests. Percona Live covers technologies and practices to keep a MySQL-based system running at peak performance and reliability. Sessions include hot topics such as cloud computing and NoSQL databases, design and architecture for performance and scalability, next-generation emerging database technologies, and perennial subjects such as backups and monitoring.
The registration fee for Percona Live is $249, a great value for companies who want to significantly increase their employees' expertise for building large-scale, reliable systems with MySQL and related technologies. Percona Live is an excellent networking and recruiting opportunity, and there will be a free evening event where attendees build personal relationships with connections who can help them succeed in business with MySQL. Previous Percona Live events have filled to capacity, and this event can accept up to 350 registrations. Registration is online via the Percona Live website.
