    MySQL at PHP UnConference on Island of Majorka & Solutions Linux & Open Source Conference Paris

    The PHP UnConference is taking place on May 17-18, 2014 on the Island of Majorka. MySQL team is going to be presented by Ulf Wendel at this event. As usual for all UnConferences there is no sessions/talks schedule announced prior the conference, attendees might vote for the most interesting topics at the event. So, do not miss to come to PHP UnConference at lovely Island of Majorka!! (in the case you still do not know whether come or not, maybe the price of tickets, weather forecast and/or flight ticket from several locations might convince you...). 

    The Solutions Linux & OpenSource Conference is going to take place in Paris, France on May 20-21, 2014. Same as last year Oracle will have a big presence there. You can find MySQL, Linux and VM teams at the stand E28. Unfortunately this year no MySQL talk was accepted but our colleagues from Linux team had better luck, so the accepted Linux talks are:

    • Prise en main des conteneurs LXC et Btrfs sur Oracle Linux
    • Appliquez les mises à jour noyau sans rebooter avec Ksplice

    (Both given by Gregory Verstraeten)

    You might find the schedule (once fully announced by organizers) at Linux Solution website, together with the full list of exhibitors.

    We are looking forward to talking to you at both events!
