Developers, database administrators, IT architects, and others looking to learn more about the advantages of the MySQL database, MariaDB, and related technologies will be pleased to know that SkySQL has teamed up with MariaDB to present the inaugural SkySQL and MariaDB: Solutions Day for the MySQL Database event.
Set to be held on April 13, 2012, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:15 p.m. at the Hyatt Regency hotel in Santa Clara, California, Solutions Day for the MySQL Database promises plenty of training, consulting, and keynote speeches from some of the industry’s top MySQL and MariaDB experts. The list of speakers scheduled to be on hand for the event is headlined by Michael (Monty) Widenius and David Axmark, the two developers responsible for MySQL’s creation.
The event’s speakers and training sessions will concentrate on four general areas: data warehouse solutions, migration solutions, cloud solutions, and technology solutions. MySQL’s current and future trends will be discussed, giving those in attendance exclusive insight into the overall direction of the database industry. Widenius, Monty Program’s CEO and VP of community, said, “This Solutions Day event will be the perfect platform for us to announce our future plans for the SkySQL & MariaDB cooperation in terms of technology, partners and commercial solutions.”
SkySQL and MariaDB: Solutions Day for the MySQL Database’s keynotes and training offer several benefits to attendees. The training sessions will showcase a variety of useful tips, such as how to integrate applications with MySQL solutions, how to adapt MySQL solutions to the cloud, how to create high availability environments, and how to optimize, scale, and enhance MySQL deployments. Lastly, participants can use the event to network with others in the MySQL community. MySQL experts from the following organizations will provide hands-on training at the event: Calpont InfiniDB, Continuent, Monty Program, ScaleDB, Severalnines, SkySQL, Sphinx, Webyog, and more.
The event’s scheduled date is significant, as it comes one day after the completion of the Percona Live: MySQL Conference and Expo. This gives attendees one more day of training and informative discussions. “It's great to have opportunities for MySQL diversity and it makes sense to have an additional day of important technical sessions to complement the User Conference," said Sheeri K. Cabral, a database administrator at the Mozilla Foundation.
