Data Fabrics and Other Tales: Percona Live and MySQL Connect

The fall conference season is starting.  I will be doing a number of talks including a keynote on "future proofing" MySQL through the use of data fabrics.  Data fabrics allow you to build durable, long-lasting systems that take advantage of MySQL's strengths today but also evolve to solve future problems using fast-changing cloud and big data technologies.  The talk brings together ideas that Ed Archibald (our CTO) and I have been working on for over two decades.  I'm looking forward to rolling them out to a larger crowd.

Here are the talks in calendar order.  The first two are at MySQL Connect 2012 in San Francisco on September 30th:
MySQL Connect is an add-on to Oracle Open World.  You know the conference is big if they have to use 5-digit codes to keep track of talk titles.  It's almost worth the price of admission to look at Larry Ellison's boat.  Well maybe not quite, but you get the idea.

Next up is the Percona Live MySQL Conference in New York on October 2nd:
Percona has been doing an amazing job of organizing conferences.  This will be my fifth one.  The previous four were great.  If you are in the New York area and like MySQL, sign up now.  This conference is the single best way to get up to speed on state-of-the-art MySQL usage.
