Pics from MySQL Conference '08

This past week I was out in the Bay Area for the MySQL Conference and Expo.  I hit the pre-event parties and attended the conference's opening day.   The first day featured a great set of opening keynotes from Marten Mickos, Jonathan Schwartz and Werner Vogel, CTO of Amazon. 


Marten Mickos, tellin' like it is. 

 
Jonathan Schwartz divulging Sun's "secret plot." 

The main reason for my attendance at the Conference was to get a bunch of podcast interviews as well as to be interviewed by the press as Sun's "Linux Guy."  I ended talking to the Register, Information Week and DevX as an interviewee. 

As an interviewer I was able record podcasts with:

Look for these to be posted this week. 

Rich Green, EVP of Software at Sun and Marten's  boss, Sun Visor gave out awards for Applications, , Partners, and Community members of the year.


Zack Urlocker and Tim O'Reilly talk to the press at the press reception.


Kaj Arno of MySQL and Ann of Zmanda strike a pose in the press room. 


The lunch was definitely one of the nicer ones I've had at a tech conference and the location didn't suck either. 

 
The evening soiree on the exhibition floor. 


Sebastian Bergmann poses at the O'Reilly table with the PHPUnit pocket guide he authored (I put him up to it).

As I mentioned above, I should be posting the podcasts I recorded this week.

Pau for now...
