Setting up a MySQL Guru Bar at FrOSCon

FrOSCon Logo

Do you plan to attend the Free and Open Source Conference (FrOSCon) in St. Augustin, Germany on August 22 & 23? Are you a fan of MySQL and would you like to share your knowledge about it with other users? Here is your chance!

Sun Microsystems is a Gold sponsor of FrOSCon this year and will also be present with a booth there on both days. In addition to demo stations about Open HA Cluster, OpenSolaris and NetBeans, Sun will also provide space for a MySQL info desk, which we would like to turn into a "Guru Bar", including members of the MySQL community.

The goal is to talk with existing and potential new MySQL users, share knowledge and expertise. We want to inform the visitors about what's new at MySQL and how they can get more information and help. If you have a solid MySQL background, are familiar with the various MySQL information resources (e.g. the DevZone, Forge, Forums, Mailing Lists, Planet MySQL) and enjoy talking to other users, we would like to hear from you! If you're interested in participating at the Guru Bar, please contact us at mysql-community AT sun DOT com for details. Thank you!

FrOSCon schedule draft published, CfP for OpenSQL Camp still open until July 19th!

FrOSCon Logo

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:

In addition to that, there are numerous other very interesting talks related to Linux, Open Source, Cloud Computing and other topics. There usually is a nice social event (BBQ) and BOFs on Saturday evening and the overall atmosphere at FrOSCon is very relaxed and friendly. So don't miss this opportunity!
