I am happy and pleased to announce the 2009 MySQL Unconference. The Unconference is a free conference that gives the community a chance to participate without having to incur the large expense of the official conference. Community members old and new will be on hand to speak, answer questions, give advice and generally help out. It will be taking place at the same time and place as the MySQL Conference and Expo — (well, almost the same time).
The grand scale details:
Sunday, April 19 2009 - Wed. April 22 2009 (the MySQL conference goes until Thursday)
The Hyatt Regency Santa Clara
5101 Great America Parkway
