The Oracle Development Tools Users Group (ODTUG) is holding its annual conference in Washington, DC, from June 27th to July 1st. The great news this year is that, at popular demand, there will be a MySQL track, organized and manned by the MySQL community.
The ODTUG is an independent group of very skilled Oracle users, fond of high level training, specifically in matters of development tools. This year, after the Sun acquisition was finalized, the ODTUG board of directors asked the MySQL community to provide some contents for their conference, since a large part of ODTUG members are also MySQL users.
The task was happily taken by two recently named Oracle ACE Directors, Ronald Bradford and Sheeri K. Cabral, who have quickly put together a MySQL track full of talents. Thanks, Ronald, and Sheeri: that was a hell of a job that you have pulled in such a short time!
This is what seems to be the start of a good cooperation between communities. I see happy faces from both sides. Now let's see how it evolves on the conference grounds!
