Speaking at the 2012 Percona Live MySQL Conference

February 27, 2012

This year, I have the pleasure of returning to the MySQL Conference & Expo as a speaker. Percona have picked up the torch that O’Reilly had held as the conference organizers, and they’re putting together a 3-day conference this year. I am co-presenting a tutorial with Yves Trudeau from Percona.

Percona Live MySQL Conference, London, Oct 24th and 25th, 2011

Speaking at Percona Live — and you can get there for cheap!

September 8, 2011

Following my departure from Linbit, I’m honored to be serving a number of speaking requests at conferences over the next few months.

The first I am pleased to announce is my commitment to speak at Percona Live in London this October. The conference venue is the America Square Conference Centre not too far from the iconic Tower of London. My 3-hour tutorial MySQL High Availability Sprint: Launch The Pacemaker! is scheduled for Monday, October 24th at 1pm.

In this tutorial, I’ll show you the simplest, quickest and easiest way to set up MySQL high availability in Pacemaker clusters — once you understand the concept, you’ll be able to pull this sort of thing off in under an hour.

What’s cool is that Percona provide tutorial speakers with discount codes for registration, which we can freely share. Thus, if you register for Percona Live using the discount code HaasPLUK11, you get £40 off the Conference+Tutorials ticket — and if you do so before September 19, you save an additional £135 with Early Bird Registration. This discount is valid regardless of whether you actually come to my tutorial or choose a concurrently scheduled one — so even if my tut is not for you, I can still help you get into the conference cheaper!

I’m thrilled to be doing this and can’t wait to see a bunch of familiar faces in London. And I’d be thrilled so see you!
