This Thursday (June 25th, 13:00 UTC), Lenz Grimmer will explain how to contribute code to MySQL, in a MySQL University session titled MySQL Code Contributions. Lenz is a member of the MySQL Community Team. His session will give an overview about how code contributions to MySQL should be handled and performed. It will cover the ideal workflow, requirements and available infrastructure and toolchain that potential contributors should be aware of.
For MySQL University sessions, point your browser to this page. You need a browser with a working Flash plugin. You may register for a Dimdim account, but you don't have to. (Dimdim is the conferencing system we're using for MySQL University sessions. It provides integrated voice streaming, chat, whiteboard, session recording, and more.) All MySQL University sessions are recorded, that is, slides and voice can be viewed as a Flash movie (.flv). You can find those recordings on the respective MySQL University session pages which are listed on the MySQL University home page.
MySQL University is a free educational online program for engineers/developers. MySQL University sessions are open to anyone, not just Sun employees. Sessions are recorded (slides and audio), so if you can't attend the live session you can look at the recording anytime after the session.
Here's the schedule for the upcoming weeks:
- July 2: Starring Sakila - a data warehouse mini-tutorial (Roland Bouman)
