Peter Zaitsev

Why Public Database as a Service is Prime for Open Source Disruption

Peter Zaitsev, Percona

Percona’s CEO and Co-Founder, Peter Zaitsev, will explore the trends around public DBaaS and give his opinion on how we need to disrupt the current trends to keep open source open and provide users with quality alternative DBaaS solutions.

Karen AmbroseThe Technological Response to a Global Pandemic — The Francis Crick Institute COVID19 Consortium Diagnostic Pipeline

Karen Ambrose, Crick Institute

Karen will share the work involved in setting the Francis Crick Institute up as a COVID19 testing facility, highlighting the technological journey to support the testing efforts and the considerations taken into account in relation to data governance, the importance of data auditing throughout the pipeline, and the progress to date.


Organizing For Your Ethical Principles

Emily Gorcenski, ThoughtWorks Germany


Liz Fong-Jones,

Engineers of all kinds must ensure their work serves the public good. A service that reliably harms, exacerbates injustices, or excludes marginalized groups is not a service worth building and maintaining. Learn how to effectively accomplish change in your working conditions or your employer’s products through grassroots employee advocacy.



Sugu Sougoumarane

The Cloud is Inevitable

Sugu Sougoumarane, PlanetScale

There is a reason why the cloud is gaining popularity. On one hand, the software is growing and getting more complex. In contrast, the computing power of a single machine has more or less maxed out. The only way to keep growing is by distributing our software across machines. It is only a matter of time before this requirement starts to affect the databases. For many, it already has.
