MySQL Connect 2014, Save The Date!

We're very pleased to announce that MySQL Connect will next year take place from Monday September 29 to Thursday October 2, 2014, in San Francisco. And there will be a welcome reception on Sunday September 28 evening.

During the past 2 years we’ve run MySQL Connect during the weekend prior to Oracle OpenWorld, and we repeatedly got feedback that avoiding the weekend would be better. Well, this is now done! MySQL Connect will be fully aligned with Oracle OpenWorld. This will also enable us to have more room to schedule sessions across the 4 days and to be better integrated within Oracle OpenWorld overall, which was also part of the feedback we’ve got.

We will provide more details down the road but wanted to make sure you could save the dates and make your plans accordingly.

The Call for Papers will likely open in March, so start thinking about your topics now in order to submit them swiftly when it opens.

We look forward to an even more exciting MySQL Connect in 2014!
