What a week in Santa Clara!

The SkySQL booth ready for the stampede of visitors that stopped by each day.

We hope it was as productive and fun for all of you as it was for us at SkySQL! We started out the week at Percona Live, which was an excellent conference. Thanks to the Percona folks for making this a great get-together for the MySQL community. Excellent job, guys!

We welcomed two new partners, hastexo and PalominoDB, which means our customers will see even better MySQL service and support with SkySQL. And many of our current partners, such as MariaDB and Continuent, showed off great booths and saw a great deal of traffic, too.

Our team came in from all over the world, and even with severe jet lag, enjoyed speaking with visitors who flocked by our booth to learn more, talk to the team and play with the inflatable seals and popper toys. And maybe to pick up a t-shirt or two. :)

Four of our team members presented in sessions, and the audiences were engaged and asked smart questions. Can't ask for more than that. Our special thanks to Peter Vandenberghen from Jetair & Mike Pattison from Trading Screen for coming all the way from Europe to speak with us at the conference.

Our week continued into Friday as we hosted our SkySQL and MariaDB: Solutions Day for the MySQL Database. We'll have more on that tomorrow, but we were excited by the turnout! Watch out for further updates from us on this!

And finally, a big shout-out to our friends at Monty Program who won a Community Award!
