Percona Live 2017: Day Three Keynotes - A Recap of the Final Day
Percona Live 2017, the open source database conference, concluded on April 27th with a series of keynotes that highlighted the latest developments and innovations in the database ecosystem. The final day of the conference featured speakers from Airbnb, Percona, Booking.com, and the MySQL community, who shared their insights and experiences with various open source technologies and solutions.
The first keynote of the day was delivered by Xinyao Hu from Airbnb, who introduced Spinaltap, a change data capture system that enables real-time data replication and processing across different data stores. Spinaltap leverages Kafka as a central message bus and supports MySQL, MongoDB, and HBase as source and destination databases. Hu explained how Spinaltap is used for various use cases at Airbnb, such as online serving production, offline large distributed batch processing, data quality monitoring, and schema evolution.
The second keynote was given by Peter Zaitsev, CEO of Percona, who discussed how Percona contributes to the open source database ecosystem. Zaitsev emphasized Percona's commitment to being an unbiased champion of the open source database community, providing open source support and solutions to its customers, users, and partners. He also provided updates and highlighted exciting new developments in Percona Server software for MySQL and MongoDB.
The third keynote was presented by Jean-FranÃois GagnÃ from Booking.com, who talked about how Booking.com monitors its system health without looking at MySQL. GagnÃ shared a fascinating metric that Booking.com uses to detect problems and customer behavior on its website: bookings per second. He explained how this metric is influenced by various factors, such as time of the day, day of the week, season of the year, and external events. He also demonstrated how Booking.com uses Grafana to visualize and analyze this metric in real time.
The final keynote of the day was the Community Award Ceremony, hosted by Daniel Nichter from Square and Emily Slocombe from SurveyMonkey. The MySQL Community Awards initiative is an effort to acknowledge and thank individuals and corporations for their contributions to the MySQL ecosystem. The awards are given for Community Contributor, Application, and Corporate Contributor categories. The winners of this year's awards were:
Community: RenÃ CannaÃ, Simon Mudd, Shlomi Noach
Application: Sysbench, Gh-ost
Corporate: GitHub, Percona
Congratulations to all the winners and nominees for their outstanding work and dedication to the MySQL community!
