Workbench Rocking

Mike Hillyer talks about MySQL Workbench. Very nice workshop! (Hillyer will make slides and screen recording of his talk available.)

This is a great platform-native application. All presentation code is written for each specific platform. It is the second most-popular download and the second most purchased product in the MySQL online shop.  There's a community edition and there's a standard edition of the Workbench. People in the workshop got a 1 year subscription to the commercial, standard edition.

I'm sitting in the room here in MySQL Conference. I'm running a WB 5.1 edition I've built on my MacBook Pro laptop.

Double Free

MySQL Workbench has already received some great accolades this year and there is more to come!

Now, those attending the MySQL Users Conference will have a chance to become a MySQL schema design expert.

The Conference will include a free MySQL Workbench workshop called “Introduction to Data Modeling with MySQL Workbench” on Thursday (April 23, 2009) 3 - 4:30 PM in the Santa Clara Ballroom. According to Mike Zinner, MySQL Workbench development lead, "We are also offering a full tutorial on this topic on Monday that will have even more advanced content. Learn more about this here."

The Tuesday workshop will cover general concepts from basics of database schema design to performance-tuning of your schemata as well as more specific topics such as MySQL Workbench basics to WB add-ons and more will all be covered. This will also be a great chance to get introduced and plugged into the MySQL Workbench community. 

Last but not least, everybody attending the Tuesday Workshop will receive a 12-month MySQL Workbench Standard Edition subscription for free. (In case you're wondering, Workbench SE is the commercial edition of Workbench.)

There will be a limited number of seats. So register as soon as you can. 

Finally, Mike Hillyer will be giving the Monday tutorial on "Introduction to Data Modeling with MySQL Workbench".

Community Statistics for Netbeans Database Usage

"The database support in NetBeans allows users to connect to a database and view and modify the database structure and data. These graphs show which database servers users connect to most often."

Of particular note, besides the large usage of MySQL and Oracle, is the large usage of Java DB (Derby), and the significant PostgreSQL usage.

A Suggestion for Skype

Although there are scripts that can be used to have Skype call a particular number at a particular time—acting as some kind of an alarm—it would be great if Skype adds a time and alarm feature with time zone capabilities. I've personally used Skype to join global teleconferences from the U.S., India, Norway and Germany, and this feature would be very useful to me. (Perhaps, such a component already exists. If so, please leave a comment and let me know.)
