Sun Second Life: New MySQL Campus space coming soon.
By George Trujillo on Feb 18, 2009
I was given a tour of the new Sun Second Life employee home area and it is going to be pretty cool. I loved the design of the auditorium and the layout. I think this new employee home is going to be a lot more functional. Special thanks to Enzo for the great sign. I highly recommend visiting the new home location and taking a tour. Some highlights include:
- Entry area with RSS feeds, informational signage on events and workshops, mentor board, etc.
- Cool meeting areas and gathering spaces
- New private conference rooms for meetings
- Small theater seating up to 80 avatars
- Employee sandbox
- MySQL sandbox (future home of MySQL Campus)
- Library space for digital learning content such as eBooks, newspapers (WSJ) and more
I am also excited to announce that we are going to be working on a MySQL campus space in the home employee island. Areas we plan on having in this MySQL campus space includes:
- MySQL certification
- MySQL best practices
- MySQL in the Sun Software Stack
- MySQL strategic directions
When we launch the site we are going to have a number of MySQL presentations along with LAMP and Sun Software Stack presentations. Areas of focus will include:
- Scaling and Performance Tuning
- MySQL Optimal Configuration Architecture (MOCA)
- Best Practices
- Identify Management
- DRBD and Heartbeat
If you are interested in getting involved in the build of the MySQL campus in second life let me know.
