The major annual event in both the MySQL and Drizzle worlds is the conference week in April. This year Percona is organizing the Percona Live MySQL Conference and Expo from Apr 10-12 and as usual we follow up with a Drizzle Day on Apr 13. It's the 4th Drizzle Day!
I will be giving a keynote at the main conference, on Wednesday April 11. I will be giving a keynote on the state of the MySQL Ecosystem and how cloud is evolving it. (HPCloud is a sponsor of the conference.) Of course, it is about Databases in the Cloud so MySQL and Drizzle are still with me :-)
There are a few Drizzle specific talks though. Check out Scripting MySQL with Lua and libdrizzle inside Nginx and Getting Started with Drizzle 7.1.
Then on Friday, April 13 it's all about Drizzle. I will be giving a mini-keynote to start the day, and then we have great talks about new and old features in Drizzle. The Drizzle Day is free entry, so even if you're not attending the main conference, but if you're interested to learn about using Drizzle, please consider joining us. At the end of the day there is also some content for those who might want to start hacking on Drizzle itself. Especially if you live in the Bay area, just pop in, it would be great to meet Drizzle users and hackers in person.
Oh, and I also want to say it is really great that Percona and Technocation are sponsoring this event and also that SkySQL has invited us to their lunch and after party. Since Drizzle is purely a community project, we really appreciate this. It is what makes Drizzle Day happen.
Speaking of lunch: Please RSVP to us so we know how many are coming.
