To submit a session for Percona Live Europe 2018 Open Source Database Conference, create an account
below or log in to finalize or add more sessions, and/or to submit.
Submissions will be accepted through August 10th, 2018.
Our theme is “Connect. Accelerate. Innovate.” with a range of topics on MySQL, MariaDB, MongoDB, PostgreSQL and other open source databases. Session tracks include Developers, Operations and Business/Case Studies This year, we are including a special Business/Enterprise track during our tutorial day one sessions in order to address the best ideas for how open source databases and database technologies can address and solve business issues such as application time-to-market, resource costs, OPEX and CAPEX expenses, etc.
We’re looking forward to your submissions! We want proposals that cover the many aspects of application development using all open source databases, as well as new and interesting ways to monitor and manage database environments. Did you just embrace open source databases this year? What are the technical and business values of moving to or using open source databases? How did you convince your company to make the move? Was there tangible ROI?
Possible topics include:
MySQL – Do you have an opinion on what is new and exciting in MySQL? With the release of MySQL 8.0, are you using the latest features? How and why? Are they helping you solve any business issues, or making deployment of applications and websites easier, faster or more efficient? Did the new release get you to change to MySQL? What do you see as the biggest impact of the MySQL 8.0 release? Do you use MySQL in conjunction with other databases in your environment?
MongoDB – How has the 3.6 release improved your experience in application development or time-to-market? How are the new features making your database environment better? What is it about MongoDB 4.0 that excites you? What are your experiences with Atlas? Have you moved to it, and has it lived up to its promises? Do you use MongoDB in conjunction with other databases in your environment?
PostgreSQL – Why do you use PostgreSQL as opposed to other SQL options? Have you done a comparison or benchmark of PostgreSQL vs. other types of databases related to your tasks? Why and what were the results? How does PostgreSQL help you with application performance or deployment? How do you use PostgreSQL in conjunction with other databases in your environment?
Security – All of us have experienced security challenges. Whether they are initiated by legislature (GDPR), bugs (Meltdown/Spectre), experience (external attacks) or due diligence (planning for the worst), when do you have ‘enough’ security? Are you finding that security requirements are preventing your from being agile?
Serverless, Cloud or On Premise – The technology landscape is no longer a simple one and mixing infrastructures has almost become the norm. Are you designing data architectures for the new landscape, and eager to share your experience? Have microservices become an important part of your plans?
SQL, NewSQL, NoSQL – It’s become a perennial question without an easy answer. How do databases compare, how do you choose the right technology for the job, how do you trade off between features and their benefits in comparing databases? If you have ever tried a hybrid database approach in a single application, how did that work out? How nicely does MongoDB play with MySQL in the real world? Do you have anything to say about using SQL with NoSQL databases?
High Availability – What choices are you making to ensure high availability? How do you find the balance between redundancy and cost? Are you using hot backups, and if so, what happened when you needed to rollback on them?
Scalability – When did you recognize you needed to address data scale? Did your data growth take you by surprise or were you always in control? Did it take a degradation in performance to get your management to sit up and take notice? How do you plan for scale if you can’t predict demand?
What the Future Holds - What do you see as the “next big thing”? What new and exciting features are going to be released? What’s in your next release? What new technologies will affect the database landscape? AI? Machine learning? Blockchain databases? Let us know about innovations you see on the way.
