FrOSCon schedule draft published, CfP for OpenSQL Camp still open until July 19th!
By Lenz Grimmer on Jun 29, 2009
FrOSCon, the Free and Open Source Conference, will take place on August 22nd and 23rd in Sankt Augustin, Germany. Sun Microsystems is a Gold Sponsor of the conference which takes place for the fourth time now. As for the previous years, the organizers have managed to arrange a great lineup of speakers and content. Presentations are held in both English and German — a first draft of the schedule is now available. However, it is still subject to change in some details, based on the feedback by the invited speakers.
I am looking forward to this event, especially since we're helping to organize the OpenSQL Camp subconference there, which will take place in parallel (there also is a subconference about Java this time). By the way: if you've missed the deadline for submitting your database-related talk to FrOSCon, you can still submit your talk for OpenSQL Camp until July, 19th! We look forward to your submission.
On the FrOSCon main tracks, there will be a number of MySQL-related talks as well as presentations about other Open Source projects sponsored and supported by Sun. Here's an excerpt from the schedule:
- Sebastian Bergmann: The State of Quality Assurance Tools for PHP
- Lenz Grimmer: Working for a Virtual Company - How do we do it at MySQL?
- Sonali Minocha: Best MySQL Performance Tuning Practices
- Walter Heck: MySQL Multi-Master Replication Failover - A step-by-step explanation
