We are about a week out at this point from the Percona Live MySQL conference, held in Santa Clara, California, and JumpMind is getting excited about it. As one of JumpMind's founders, I will be presenting a session on SymmetricDS at the conference, and JumpMind will also be revealing its newly-designed exhibit booth at the conference as well. We are putting the finishing touches on our presentation currently, in fact. The presentation will include a good summary of all the features and ways to use SymmetricDS and will also reveal a few new features and dialects that many people do not yet know about! Watch for tweets throughout the week of April 22nd as we reveal upcoming features, both big and small, in SymmetricDS.

In addition to announcing new features, the presentation will also include a live demonstration of how to set up SymmetricDS to do data synchronization of a CRM user application. Ah, the joys (i.e., terror) of giving live demos to a crowd of people! The demonstration is a key part of the presentation, of course, in that it will demonstrate just how easy it is to get SymmetricDS up and running and synchronizing data in just a few minutes time.

By the way, the presentation is currently scheduled for Tuesday afternoon, April 23rd. If you are interested in signing up for the conference and attending, you can use the code "SponsorSQL" (no quotes) to obtain a discount. Also, be sure to visit JumpMind at Booth 416 throughout the entire week and stop by for some free giveaways, as well! Well, back to fine-tuning the presentation and demos. I hope to see you at the conference!
