I have just been notified that my proposal for a one-day MySQL Miniconf at LinuxConfAU 2008 in Melbourne has been accepted, so here's the call-for-papers! The MySQL miniconf was packed all day last time, and we had more proposals than we could fit... so, let's make 2008 a good one too!
There are about 6 or 7 slots of 50 minutes each. We could do 2x25 minutes for some, and possibly a slot with 5 minute lightning talks.
