A Warm Welcome to the MySQL Community
By Monica Kumar-Oracle on Oct 18, 2010
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.

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.
