Employee +1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Beware of bugs in the above code; I have only proved it correct, not tried it.
Donald Knuth

Bugs in software are a fact of life. MySQL, as part of Oracle, issues of Critical Patch Updates and Security Alerts notices. You may have seen Daniel van Eeden‘s blog on the January announcement.

We recruited MySQL experts from several teams to present, and had great questions and discussions along the way and at the end. I personally received many positive comments

OTN MySQL conference slides
+2 Vote Up -1Vote Down

2010 has been the first year I have re-presented any of my developed MySQL presentations.
