Talkin' MySQL (conference) with Jay Pipes
By barton808 on Apr 04, 2008
Yesterday I chatted with Jay Pipes at his home in the Buckeye State. Jay is the North American community manager for MySQL and very recent Sun employee. We chatted about whats up in the world of MySQL and all about the MySQL Conference thats coming up in 10 days (April 14-16, in Santa Clara).

Some of the topics we tackle:
- The ability at the MySQL conference to have a beer with the actual guy who wrote the code for the replication engine.
- The super secret promo code from O'Reilly for those who listen to this podcast (mys08pcd)
- The awesome line-up of keynote speakers -- including high-muckety-mucks from Amazon, Facebook, YouTube, Flickr...)
- How writing a book on MySQL can get you hired.
- Java -- moving beyond MySQLs strengths in Perl, PHP and Ruby (would that be the LAMJ stack? that rolls right off the tongue)
Pau for now...
