UC2009 proposals, wow! A near miss
By Giuseppe Maxia on Oct 23, 2008
OK. I was exceedingly optimistic, but not too much. I said that we may get enough submissions by the end of the regular CfP, and I was almost right. At midnight of October 22nd, we got 284 submissions, which is about 100 proposals more than last year (before extending), but not as much as we got after the extension.
Well done, MySQL Community!
But since we are hard to please, we want to have at least the same number of proposals that we had last year (I am sure we'll get more!), and so we are extending for two weeks. You have time until November 5th to submit a proposal.
Surprisingly, participation from other Sun communities is low. Solaris, Java, NetBeans, Glassfish, OpenOffice have either a token representation or are just silent. I know that there has been much going on between MySQL and these communities, and thus I am surprised to find so little.
Do you have a good technical MySQL presentation about one of the above topics? Then show us!
Remember that the theme of the conference is Innovation Everywhere. Anything technical and innovative about MySQL will be well received.
