Are you planning on being in Santa Clara for Percona Live: MySQL Conference and Expo in April? Not attending Percona Live but can make it to Santa Clara, California for a free one day conference?
If so, we invite you to join us (the MariaDB developers), and SkySQL for the 2nd Annual MySQL® & Cloud Database Solutions Day on Friday, April 26, 2013 at the Hyatt Regency Santa Clara. This event is taking place directly after the Percona Live event because that's when we'll be in town, but as mentioned above, even if you're not attending Percona Live, you're still welcome to attend.
During this free one-day event, there will be hands-on training and consulting on MariaDB and MySQL database solutions. Michael (Monty) Widenius, founder of MariaDB and original co-author of MySQL, will be there along with many of the core MariaDB developers.
The event will feature two technical tracks: one focused on MariaDB, MySQL, and related technologies, and the second on best practices for deploying database applications in the Cloud.
In addition to Monty, speakers will include representatives from Calpont, Codership, Craigslist, MariaDB, SkySQL, and the OpenStack Foundation.
Take a look at the event schedule, featured speakers, and venue and please register today (even though the event is free, there isn't unlimited space and SkySQL needs to know how many people to plan for).

If you're unable to join us in Santa Clara, we will be attending other events put on by SkySQL in different cities around the world. Check out their events page for the details: http://www.skysql.com/news-and-events/events
Thanks and enjoy MariaDB!
