Going to Percona Live: MySQL Conference and Expo?

Make sure to leave some room in your suitcase if you’re going to the Percona Live: MySQL Conference and Expo next week. The OurSQL podcast folks – that’s me, current co-host Gerry Narvaja and former co-host Sarah Novotny – will be giving away FREE CD’s and signing them during the book signing on Wednesday night. I will also have a limited number of copies of The MySQL Administrator’s Bible for sale for USD$40 – or you can order it ahead of time from Amazon.com and save yourself about $10.

Mozilla will be having a booth in the Dot Org pavilion this year. Stop by and say hi, let us know what you love (and hate) about Firefox, Thunderbird, Bugzilla and any other Mozilla product you use. And do not forget to look at the Mozilla has several job openings – though sadly none for full-time DBAs at this time. But if you’re a developer or systems/network administrator or work in any other sector of IT, there’s probably a job opening you’d fit into.

I packed this morning for the trip I’m making – first to New York City to speak at the Effective MySQL User Group tomorrow night starting at 7 pm (come at 6:45 for the pizza!). Then I’m off to New Jersey to spend Passover with my family, which got a little larger just 2 weeks ago (congrats to my brother and sister-in-law!). After that I fly to California…so I’m packed for three events right now.

Let the fun begin!
