Next Thursday (February 5th), we're continuing our series of sessions on MySQL performance measuring and improvements with Allan Packer's presentation titled MySQL Performance and Scalability Project - Issues and Opportunities. Allan works in the Performance and Applications Engineering department at Sun Microsystems, so again, expect to get some deep insights into the inner workings of the MySQL Server.
Allan is based in Australia, so note that this session will take place in the morning (Europe) or evening (APAC), respectively.

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.
