In October, I'll speak at two big conferences - Oracle Open World and Percona Live London. I appreciate Oracle and Percona to give me opportunities to talk. It's always fun for me to speak at overseas conferences and meet friends.
At Oracle Open World, I have one session: "Scaling and Monitoring MySQL for Rapidly Growing Social Gaming" (here is a timetable).
At Percona Live London, I have one 3-hour tutorial and one 30-minute session .. "Linux and H/W optimizations for MySQL" and "MHA: Introducing automated MySQL master failover solution".
I'll make sure that all of these talks will be practical enough. Basic theories and generic benchmarks will be covered since it's important to understand, but I'll more focus on how we use in production (on 1000+ MySQL servers).
BTW, this is the first time for me to visit London and I'm looking forward to watching Premiere League, though I've heard that it's very difficult to get tickets.
