Congrats to SCaLE for 9x

SCaLE 9x was a great event. There were lots of great talks, a fun hallway track and even an added game night. Lots of good stuff. Not only did they do all that, but they did it in a new location.

The minutes from the post-event meeting show that 9x had a 20% attendance increase and was cash positive. It also had , an expo floor that spilled out into another room.

I added the presentation to the Moodle instance. Now the presentation knows where the class is and the class knows where the presentation is. I just need to get the info to those attending :).

got Percona some consulting

Yesterday, I got Percona some consulting. Feels good to give back to a company that has certainly helped me out without ever interacting with me.

One of my students asked for references on improving a MySQL setup that had rolled over for his job. While I did recommend some local resources, I also recommended Percona. We had just talked about performance tuning, so the question was even on-topic :).

FUDcon:Tempe 2011

At FUDcon today. The largest FUDcon turnout ever. Lot's of good conversation in the hallway track.

Really enjoyed Curtis Zinzilieta's performance tuning basics presentation, Can't be here tomorrow, so I'll miss his second presentation if he makes it (he also has obligations and wasn't planning on being here tomorrow). Luckily he made a similar proposal for ABLEconf :).
