Last may I wrote about Reestablishing a MySQL Tradition where we used to have shirts just for those who contributed code to MySQL. Unfortunately that tradition was not kept during various transitions. But Antony Curtis
This is Antony Curtis in the original Community Contributor shirtimpressed me at a conference with his shirt and so the Community Team started the process of getting shirts for our contributors. Today I am proud to announce the first shirt has been ordered and in the post to Antony.

The MySQL Community Team has one and a half new members! Welcome back Morgan Tocker who many of you may remember from MySQL Training. And welcome Jara Jr, Lenka Kasparova’s son, whom mom informs us is ‘really sweet’.
The Texas Linuxfest might be the ‘little brother’ of the SCaLE show. While a smaller shower in length, it fells much more muscular. I had a full room for a session on The Proper Care and Feeding of a MySQL Database. The audience was sharp, asked amazingly great questions, and hungry for MySQL 5.6 features. And at the booth I was pleasantly inundated with MySQL questions and proud DBAs bragging about their instances.
If you missed the this show this year, please make the trip to Austin next year. You’ll not be disappointed.
Thank you for all of you who dropped by the MySQL booth at Drupalcon to say ‘Thank you’ for MySQL. At every show there are several folks who do this but at Drupalcon it seemed like half the 3,000 attending dropped by to say ‘thanks’, grab MySQL stickers, OurSQL Poscasts disks, and talk about MySQL 5.6. I’ll see all y’all next year in Austin.
And the FREE[Read more...]
The PHPTek Conference bills itself as the premier professional PHP conference with a community flair. Having been to dozens of PHP conferences, I thought that was a pretty bold claim.

If you do not see an email and you qualify for a short, let us know (we probably have an old email on record for you). And if you are working on some [Read more...]

Collaborate is a huge show that is the Independent Oracle User Group’s big yearly show and for 2013 it will be in Denver. There are several MySQL sessions of note and I have noted some below.

Lenka and I are at Oracle HQ for the Oracle Leadership Summit. This event is the start of the calendar year for us and brings the leaders of Oracle user groups together to share information. From around the world, leaders of IOUG, OHUG, and other groups to share ideas. The concept used by the Boston MySQL User Group with MySQL Marinate has caught the attention of quite a few folks. The vast majority of IOUG folks also run MySQL in their data centers and they are interested in seeing local MySQL Groups flourish.
So if you are interested in starting a new MySQL Users Group, let me or Lenka know AND contact your local IOUG chapter. We can aid you in getting meeting space in an Oracle office and your local IOUG chapter can help with other organizational issues when startinga group.
And be sure to say ‘hi’ at the[Read more...]
Keith Larson & myself (and now Lenka Kasparova) have been the MySQL Community Team for the past few years and we have traveled to a great many conferences and spoken many hours on MySQL. But we need your help. There are conferences all over that we can not attend or in many cases we are speaking but would like others to speak too! And many conferences are in a big need for speakers such as yourself.
Three upcoming shows are excellent opportunities and are actively seeing you as a presenter.
Please help me welcome a new member of the MySQL Community Team. Lenka Kasparova is based in Prague and joined Oracle with Sun acquisition in 2009-2010. She was the Project Manager for R&D on FP7 grant project AEGIS where she was responsible for the financial/administrative aspects as well as day to day project management activities. At Sun Lenka was part of the NetBeans acquisition and went through several positions from administrative, HR, and Project Management area… “Both Sun and Oracle gave me a great opportunity to learn a lot of things which I am happy to use in my new position.”
So please look for Lenka at next MySQL Community Team event near you!

Come joins us at a Birds of a Feather Session at OSCON
Moderated by: Dave Stokes
7:00pm Wednesday, 07/18/2012
MySQL is the most popular web database and last years MySQL BOF at OSCON attracted fifty people and ran well past the scheduled hour (so please put us early on the night and do not book the room right after). We had several big names in attendance as well as general users of the product. This was a valuable question and answer system for the MySQL developers and the community where both groups received lots of valuable information.
And we will have some free goodies to hand out!
I can not promise that all the MySQL Engineers and Staff at OSCON will be in attendance as 7PM PDT is too late/early for some of them.[Read more...]
