The Percona Live MySQL Conference & Expo (PLMCE) 2015 Call for Papers will close November 16 2014. It is a great place to talk shop about all things MySQL, MariaDB, and the community surrounding it. It happens April 13-16 2015, and I’m sure you’re thinking about ideas so make use of the weekend well and submit a paper, because this is a great event to attend. It’s also a good time to meet some of the MariaDB crew, whom tend to show up as speakers & attendees alike!

Percona Live London 2013 is almost here: November 11-12 2013. Team MariaDB & SkySQL will be present, and here’s an agenda if you’re interested in all things MariaDB:
