The Call for Papers for MySQL Connect 2013 will close this Friday. This is the premier Oracle-sponsored MySQL conference, and a great opportunity for community users and customers alike to connect with Oracle staff from engineering, support, consulting and other organizations, as well as community partners and peers. Maybe you’d like to talk about your experiences integrating one of the new MySQL 5.6 features. Or maybe you’d like to share best practices you’ve developed for integrating with Hadoop. Perhaps you’ve extended MySQL and want to tell the community about it. Take advantage of this opportunity and submit your proposal this week!
