Here it is finally: The MySQL conference 2012 starts with the Keynote Sessions.
The first keynote speech was by Peter Zaitsev, founder of Percona and a very smart guy, and by Baron Schwartz (Percona), another very smart guy, the brain behind a number of toolkits for MySQL. They’re talking about the MySQL Evolution – what I alluded to in my first post regarding this conference – the ways in which MySQL has grown, evolved, scaled and continues to make new inroads into new applications and industries.
From Peter: “What is most important hasn’t changed – MySQL is still a great piece of technology and it is evolving very rapidly.” (Love that quote!) Also “MySQL is also buzzword compatible: NoSQL, BigData.”
From Baron: He talked about his own personal journey from closed-source, proprietory to open-source, and the passion that went with it. I’m sure a lot of us working with/in the open-source community can relate. “Let’s be here, let’s be now.” He certainly had the audience engaged.
