BoFs welcome at the MySQL Users Conference and Expo 2009

As usual, the MySQL Users Conference and Expo includes Birds of a Feather (BoF) sessions.

For the uninitiated, a BoF is an informal discussion group about a common topic. There is no registration and no fee for a BoF. You can organize one even if you don't plan to attend the main event. If your BoF is accepted and scheduled, you can organize it as you like. You won't get a free pass for a BoF, though.

We provide the rooms. You bring in the ideas. Submit a BoF proposal!

Almost everything is suitable for a BoF. We only ask that it is related to MySQL.

  • Do you have a project that you are developing and it is still in vaporware stage? No chances for the main conference, but perfectly OK for a BoF.
  • A topic that you feel is missing from the main schedule? Make a BoF.
  • Your favorite connector is neglected? A BoF may revamp the community attention.
  • Have you created a killer scheme that solves MySQL replication one-master-many-slaves limitation? Show it in a BoF.
  • Your fork of the Archive engine is the best thing since sliced bread? Boast it in a BoF!

Imagination is the only limit. Get a good idea. Make it known!

UC2009 - A few days, a few wishes

We are almost there. Four days more, and then it's over. The CfP for the MySQL Users Conference 2009 ends on November 5th, 2008.

We have already received more proposals than we got last year, and (yes!) many of them are innovative.

Thanks to all the submitters.

I have still a few wishes, though.

There are still no proposals or very little on

  • The event scheduler
  • OpenOffice integration
  • Java
  • The plugin architecture
  • MySQL Proxy
If you have a technical story to tell about one of the subjects above, don't be shy, and come forward!

And of course, if you have some innovative ideas on any topic related to MySQL, feel free to submit a proposal.
