MySQL Use case Competition - When theory meets practice

Sakila Writer

MySQL 5.1 is almost ready for prime time, but in the meantime some brave users have already started putting it to work in production environment.

MySQL wants to hear from these intrepid souls. The MySQL 5.1 use Case competition is under way. We want feedback from users who have found a practical usage for 5.1 features, and also from the ones who have met usability challenges.

Two articles have already been published from the competition submissions. One showing a popular soccer team using MySQL 5.1 and one proposing a creative way of managing large storage. More articles will come with your feedback

If you are using MySQL 5.1 in production, please let us know!
