On the eve of the Percona Live: MySQL Conference and Expo (Monday 31 March 2014) I get to help run my first CentOS Dojo at the Santa Clara Convention Center. For this event, I’ll MC and give a talk about the newness in the CentOS Project. The lineup so far is pretty set and quite stellar:
- Jeremy Carroll — Systems Automation and Metrics at Pinterest: “At Pinterest metrics instrumentation and presentation has been an increasingly vital as our systems scale …”
- Monty Widenius — Notes on MariaDB 10: “MariaDB is coming along in great strides, and is now included by default in the EL7 Beta cycle …”
- Peter Zaitsev — Running MySQL on CentOS Linux: “Linux is by far the most common platform to run MySQL, and there is a lot of accumulated knowledge about which way is best to run MySQL …”
- Jordan Sissel — Happy Tools: “Happy tools! This talk will introduce three different operations-friendly tools to help make you happier …”
- Joe Miller — Two Years in Your Future: “Systemd is the new kid on the block, everyone is talking about it, everyone is thinking about it, everyone is planning for it …”
- Joe Brockmeier — Software Collections on CentOS: “The power to build, install and use multiple versions of software on the same system, without affecting system-wide installed packages. Welcome to software collections …”
- Karsten Wade — The New CentOS Project: “A new Board member’s perspective on where the CentOS project is today and the road ahead …”
Massive thanks to Joe Brockmeier and Karanbir Singh (of the OSAS and OSAS/CentOS Engineering teams) and Kortney Runyan and the event crew at Percona. If you want to attend, hop on it — space is limited. It’s a no-cost event and comes with the bonus of a no-cost expo and keynote pass for Percona Live. Oh, did I mention we’ll serve you some lunch and generally treat you right?
If you are attending the main conference, visit us as the CentOS Project booth in the DotOrg Pavilion — or contact me if you are interested in staffing the booth.
