Percona Announces Line-up Of Speakers for Percona Live 2023, the World’s Largest Independent Database Conference

 Standard registration rate for Percona Live available until April 30, providing developers, database administrators, and decision-makers with insight into the future of open source and data.

(BUSINESS WIRE)--Percona, a leader in enterprise-grade open source database software and services, will host the latest in its annual Percona Live conference series in Denver at the Marriott Tech Center from May 22-24, 2023. Percona Live is the longest-running independent open source database conference, covering a range of database and data management topics including cloud-native deployments, performance improvements, and real-world experience from some of the world’s largest database deployments.

The event will provide three days of hands-on tutorials, breakout sessions, keynote addresses, networking, and socializing with some of the world’s most experienced database professionals. Inspired by the Denver location, this year's event is themed CLIMB. The concept is about reaching peak database performance with open source databases and how Percona serves as a guide to doing so. At the event, industry experts will provide insights around some of the world's most popular databases — MySQL, PostgreSQL, and MongoDB — as well as other open source technologies such as Clickhouse, Vitess, and Kubernetes.

“Open source is essential to driving innovation, which is why we’re excited to bring back Percona Live in person following the success of last year's event in Austin,” commented Ann Schlemmer, CEO of Percona. “Over three days we will bring together the open source community to explore the latest technical advances around databases, approaches to data management and how we can deploy these tools more effectively.
