MySQL track with free event at Kaleidoscope 2010
By Giuseppe Maxia on May 11, 2010
The Oracle Development Tools Users Group (ODTUG) is holding its annual conference in Washington, DC, from June 27th to July 1st. The great news this year is that, at popular demand, there will be a MySQL track, organized and manned by the MySQL community.
The even greater news is that, in addition to the general schedule, there are SUNDOWN SESSIONS
Monday, June 28, 5:45 p.m. – 6:45 p.m. (reception immediately following)
Join us on Monday, June 28 for a lively open discussion with Oracle MySQL ACE Directors. In addition to a specific session on MySQL, other Sundown Sessions will address: Middle Tier and Client-Side Development, Database Development, Hyperion, Essbase and BI, SOA and BPM, and Application Express. Drinks and snacks will be served during the sessions, followed by a reception for conference attendees and ACE Directors.
The sundown sessions are free, and they don't require a registration, however the organizers are asking you provide your name and email for confirmation of numbers of attendees by filling in this form.
As previously reported, there has been some love at first sight between independent Oracle User groups like the IOUG and the ODTUG (Oracle Development Tools Users Group). The end result was that a few skilled Oracle ACE Directors have taken the task of organizing the MySQL track within the conference, and the event is shaping up wuite nicely.
This is a good chance for the MySQL community. Mingling with a wider organization of dedicated and skilled users is the starting point for widening one's business and to improve on best practices.
UPDATE: Track details with discount code for MySQL attendees.
