Report for MySQL Camp, 29th July 2008, Bangalore

This MySQL event with Kaj Arno was well received. Kaj talked about the product, from different aspects, both technical and business with bit of short history, how the community could contribute, how safe MySQL at the hands of Sun, etc. It was very engaging and informative.

In his typical style of localising presentations beyond english , he started the presentations with speaking couple of sentences in few local languages: Kannada, Tamil and Hindi. The audiences were pleasantly surprised and this received huge applause.

I talked about specifically how to contribute code to MySQL-- how to get started with a focus to contribute code. I put lots of urls through out the presentation and I promised to make the slides available through my blog. Here is the slides uploaded to slideshare.net :

I have also uploaded the presentation to Bangalore MySQL User Group website: http://mysql.meetup.com/297

Kaj had shown many screen shots of many of these urls in his talk, that is good, because it will be hard to miss those details.

Thava,

I'm not able to download the pdf file from meetup. I'd appreciate if you can upload the slides in slideshare.net or similar online place for easy viewing. Making a pdf copy available in addition to online viewable slides is a good idea too.

If you could highlight the high points of the presentation, it will make it more compelling to look at the slides. :)
Cheers.

Balaji,
Thanks for the comments. For some reason, slideshare gives conversion problems. Let me see if I could get around it. btw, I was able to download from meetup-- may be the problem was temporary.

It would be nice if you would consider contributing your slides to the presentation repository. It think It would be another nice way for the community members to contribute.
