Yesterday (December 4th), Sergey Petrunia gave a presentation on what's new in MySQL Optimizer. Unfortunately, the slides didn't show up in the Dimdim presentation area, which also means that the recorded session only has Sergey's voice but not the slides. (I've filed a bug in Dimdim's issue tracker.) However, Sergey kept referring to slide numbers in his talk, so it should be fairly easy (just not as convenient as usual) to follow his recorded presentation.
The slides, together with links to the recording and the chat transcript, can be found on the MySQL University session page.
Next week (Thursday, December 11th), we'll use our brand new commercial Dimdim license to run the session. This includes a new session address / Dimdim URL:
You can bookmark this one; it will remain valid for all future sessions. Remember, though, that the meeting room will open only 15 minutes before sessions start.
Our new commercial license is for 100 seats, so everybody should be able to join future sessions. (For Sergey's session, we had between 15 and 20 participants. We were still using my free Dimdim account for that session, which limits the number of attendees to 20. I suspect some people couldn't join in. Sorry for that.)
Next week's session will be about the Random Query Generator, a tool that creates random queries that can be sent to the MySQL server. This MySQL University session will start at 14:00 UTC / 8am CST (Central) / 9am EST (Eastern) / 14:00 GMT / 15:00 CET / 17:00 MDT (Moscow).

In January, we'll likely continue with a set of sessions on performance and scalabilty – straight from the Sun QA labs. Find the tentative 2009 schedule on the MySQL University home page.
