Collaborate 14, Las Vegas, and the Naked Guy Occupying My Hotel Room
Employee +1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Colaborate is a big show for C-level executives and up for the three big Oracle User Groups. Last week at Percona Live was all MySQL, Open Source, and a few hundred close folks. This week is the biggest show, after Oracle Open World, on the Oracle user calendar and draws a huge crowd from around the globe. All the Fortune 500 are here or their contractors. In short, anything tangential to any Oracle product can be found along with companies that offer add-ons, support, consulting, and product. A lot of the attendees have MySQL in their computer rooms and that is why I am in Las Vegas.

By the way i will have new MySQL stickers available at the MySQL Demo Pod on the show floor but rules say I can not just leave them around — you will have to ask for them.

MySQL at Collaborate 12 — Day 3
Employee +2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Collaborate 12 is in Vegas and Collaborate 13 will be in Denver. Mark your calendars now!

The last MySQL session for this year’s Collaborate is over. There is another day of sessions to go but they will go on without MySQL-centric topics. The majority of those the MySQL Community Team have talked to are Oracle professionals looking to expand their support for existing MySQL instances in their organizations or those looking to move some aspect of their data over to MySQL. Many use Collaborate for obtaining technical information as they feel Oracle Open World is too frenzied to get niyty gritty details. Attendance at MySQL sessions were much larger than last year and demo pod booth

Collaborate — Day 1
Employee +3 Vote Up -0Vote Down

The MySQL sessions at Collaborate started strong after an amazing keynote by former astronaut Mark Kelly about working to become a naval aviator, astronaut, and helping his wife — Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords — after an assassination attempt on her life last year.

A rare moment when the Oracle demo pods where not wall to wall people.

First up was Set up MySQL in Five Minutes by Bob Burgess of Radian6. Most of the attendees to these sessions seem to be long time Oracle DBAs looking to add more MySQL skills or long time Oracle AND MySQL DBAs. Bob then had a second session and covered Shell Scripting for MySQL Administration where most

During Collaborate 11, the biggest IOUG conference, I'll be presenting on MySQL, Oracle and their integration in a session called: "Integrating MySQL and Oracle: The Journey of a Transaction". 
Apart from the usual self-promotion about a speaking engagement, this time I'd like to make the session interactive. I'd love if you could add your comments on the challenges you find integrating the two products and on the hints you might want to share. I'll do all my best to address your

Independent Oracle User Group's (IOUG) President, Andy Flower's article in the latest issue of Oracle Magazine extends a warm welcome to the MySQL community!

MySQL Conference Notes
+1 Vote Up -3Vote Down

This is not my notes about the MySQL conference that just occurred. These are my thoughts about MySQL conferences in general. Baron wrote in The History of OpenSQL Camp:

After O’Reilly/MySQL co-hosted MySQL Conference and Expo (a large commercial event) that year, there was a bit of dissatisfaction amongst a few people about the increasingly commercial and marketing-oriented nature of that conference. Some people refused to call the conference by its new name (Conference and Expo) and wanted to put pressure on MySQL to keep it a MySQL User’s Conference.

During this year’s conference, I heard a lot of concern about whether or not O’Reilly would have a MySQL conference, and whether or not Oracle would decide to sponsor. I heard all of the following (in no particular
