Percona, a firm in enterprise-grade open-source database software and services, will host its annual Percona Live conference series in Denver at the Marriott Tech Center, May 22-24, 2023.

What is Percona Live offering the open-source industry?

Percona Live is the longest-running independent open-source database conference, covering a range of database and data management topics like cloud-native deployments, performance improvements, as well as 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 the most experienced database professionals. Inspired by the Denver location, this year’s event is themed CLIMB. It’s about reaching peak database performance with open-source databases and how Percona serves as a guide to doing so.
