A Warm Welcome to the MySQL Community

Independent Oracle User Group's (IOUG) President, Andy Flower's article in the latest issue of Oracle Magazine extends a warm welcome to the MySQL community!

Andy outlines a number of ways in which they are collaborating with the MySQL users and community. Here is an excerpt...

IOUG is looking forward to providing a platform for MySQL users to gather virtually and physically year-round. To start, we are helping support local MySQL events, such as OpenSQL Camp in October 2010 in Boston, Massachusetts.

But we are most excited to present 120 MySQL educational sessions, given by MySQL users and key industry partners, which will be held at our annual COLLABORATE conference in Orlando, Florida, April 10-14, 2011. Not only will there be a special focus on MySQL, but attendees will have access to the numerous additional sessions put on by other members of the Oracle community, including IOUG, the Oracle Applications Users Group (OAUG), and Quest International Users Group. (For updated community events, visit http://mysql.ioug.org)

In addition to the MySQL track at COLLABORATE 11, MySQL users will find valuable information on database-vendor-agnostic concepts and the rest of the Oracle technology stack. MySQL users will also have the opportunity to meet with attendees from diverse technology backgrounds and industries. 

Pretty cool!

What about the 2011 O'Reilly MySQL Conference & Expo? It is probably the biggest event on the MySQL calendar. Will you be supporting that? Especially as it appears to clash with Collaborate.

I think it's fairly unfortunate that this clashes with the O'Reilly MySQL Conference and Expo (http://en.oreilly.com/mysql2011/) that is always really popular and well attended.

Hi Stewart,
IOUG Collaborate 2011 was announced in April 2010 whereas OReilly MySQL Conf. was finalized later...so it is unfortunate that there is an overlap. As per the IOUG, "Like most conferences that attract thousands of users, venues must be secured years in advance. This is the case with Collaborate, as contracts were signed over 3 years ago."

Hi,
As per my earlier reply to Stewart, it is unfortunate that they overlap but it was not intentional (IOUG Collaborate 2011 event has been planned for a long time).
