This Thursday (June 11th, 14:00 UTC), Tomas Ulin will give a MySQL University session on The New MySQL Release Model. Tomas is the MySQL Server Director, and will explain the new MySQL release model which has just recently been announced.
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:
- June 18, 2009: No session scheduled
- June 25, 2009: MySQL code contributions (Lenz Grimmer)
- July 2: Starring Sakila - a data warehouse mini-tutorial (Roland Bouman)
- July 9 through September 3: Semester break
The schedule is not engraved in stone at this point. Please visit http://forge.mysql.com/wiki/MySQL_University#Upcoming_Sessions for the up-to-date list. On that page, you can also find the starting time for many time zones.
