More Than 1,000 Attendees Enjoy Fifth Annual Percona Live Database Performance Conference
Next Percona Live Event Scheduled for Amsterdam, October 3-5, 2016 -- Call for Speakers Now Open
DURHAM, NC--(Marketwired - Jun 2, 2016) - Percona , the company that delivers enterprise-class MySQL® and MongoDB® solutions and services, today announced the success of its fifth annual Percona Live Database Performance Conference 2016 (formerly the MySQL Conference and Expo), which was held April 18-21, 2016 at The Hyatt Regency Santa Clara and Santa Clara Convention Center. Percona also announced that the Call for Papers is now open for Percona Live Open Source Database Conference Europe 2016 , which will take place October 3-5, 2016 at the Mövenpick Hotel Amsterdam City Centre in Amsterdam. Super Saver registration rates are available until July 3.
More than 1,000 attendees from over 40 countries and more than 450 companies gathered in Santa Clara for eight keynote addresses and 180 breakout sessions designed to inform and inspire the MySQL and NoSQL markets. Companies with the greatest representation at the event were Facebook, Google, Amazon, Box, and Deep Information Science, an important indication of the value the conference offers to companies that rely on MySQL and NoSQL to run their businesses.
"Across the board, this was our most exciting conference yet," said Peter Zaitsev, co-founder and CEO of Percona. "The keynotes were illuminating, covering the essential topics of our industry, and the attendees left the breakouts with a far deeper understanding of how to make MySQL and NoSQL work for their companies and initiatives. Our community continues to be one of the closest and most engaged tech groups I have ever been a part of."
Highlighting the conference was a keynote address by Bill Nye the Science Guy and CEO of the Planetary Society on Bill Nye's Objective - Change the World . In the address, Nye discussed how the process of science and critical thinking can help us not only be positive about the challenges we face in our world today, but also come up with the big ideas we need to solve them. Topics included his parents' involvement in science (his mother worked on the Enigma Code in World War 2!), working at Boeing as an engineer, and his involvement with Carl Sagan.
The other keynote addresses included:
- Amazon Web Services' Anurag Gupta on AWS Big Data Services: Reimagining Big Data Processing in the Cloud
