MySQL Certification Study: Write a basic .NET application that uses MySQL
+6 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I've registered for the MySQL 5.6 beta exams, just like many more on Planet MySQL have done.

One of the topics for the MySQL 5.6 Developer exam is: "Write a basic .NET application that uses MySQL".

I have used Connector/Net a few times the last few years, but the last time I looked at some code involving Connector/Net was when I took the MySQL 5 Developer exam, which was long ago.

I'm using Linux on both my laptop and on servers for most projects. So I don't use or see many .NET code.

So I need a short refresh.

To use Connector/Net on Linux you will need to install Mono. The …

Linus on Instantiation and Armadaification

I feel a sense of pride when I think that I was involved in the development and maintenance of what was probably the first piece of software accepted into Debian which then had and still has direct up-stream support from Microsoft. The world is a better place for having Microsoft in it. The first operating system I ever ran on an 08086-based CPU was MS-DOS 2.x. I remember how thrilled I was when we got to see how my friend’s 80286 system ran BBS software that would cause a modem to dial a local system and display the application as if it were running on a …

Hey all. Please comment on this entry. I’m trying to get an idea of who’s listening to what I say.

Why do you read this blog? Are you interested in community wireless networks? OpenGL development on Linux? Family? Business Intelligence? Synchronizaton Manager news? Freecycle™ development? Random Perl bits? Something else I’ve forgotten about?

I’m finding myself over-extended and I need to cut back on some of the things I focus on. Please let me know what is important to you so I know how best to re-organize my time, energy and other resources.

+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I went to Microsoft with Arjen the other day. We talked with Eric Lippert about some new features of C# 3.0 and how MySQL might integrate itself more deeply into the Microsoft Development Environment.

More details if anyone makes noise about being interested.

Reggie Burnett, Connector/NET
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Zach Urlocker (zachu_rss) mentioned a few blogs recently in an internal memo. I was listed. Whee :) So was Reggie Burnett, who is responsible for Connector/Net. I've been playing with C# recently, and I'd like to get familiar with Connector/Net (or C/Net). So I subscribed to his blog. I've added an rss feed to LiveJournal: reggie_mysql.

Reggie, I'll be reading up on it :)
