It's coming later than usual, but it's an opportunity for would be speakers. They will be able to propose talks based on the latest technology, making it even more interesting for attendees.
Some of the program is already online. The tutorial page has a great lineup of speakers and advanced topics. More will …
The MySQL Conference 2010, with Sun Microsystems as founding sponsor, has opened its Call for participation.
There is already an impressive lineup of tutorials, and I don't say that only because I am on that list. You will find the usual suspects (Replication, Cluster, Certification) and several new ones: Partitioning (covering 5.5), Drizzle replication plugins and core development, Dual master setup, Scaling Applications, Diagnosing and fixing performance, Inspecting variables, command line magic.
The names next to the above topics are all well known: Sheeri K. …[Read more]
Dear MySQL and Drupal , Plone and other Open Source folks, you might want to be interrested in giving a talk at T-Dose 2009 ,
Jean Paul pinged me with the following mail :
Maybe it escaped your attention that the Call For Papers for T-DOSE 2009 is already out. It has been announced on 12th of June 2009. Below you will find the original announcement.
Call for Papers and Projects
Fri, 06/12/2009 - 13:57 — jpsaman
T-DOSE is a free and yearly event held in The Netherlands to promote use and development of Open Source Software. During this event Open Source projects, developers and visitors can exchange ideas and knowledge. It is held at the Fontys University of Applied Science on 3 and 4 October 2009.
Speakers can send ideas and abstracts to the organisation at abstracts _AT_ t-dose.org. The email should contain a short biography of the speaker and description of the talk. All talks will be held …[Read more]
This year the fabulous OSDC conference is 25-27 November 2009 and returning to Brisbane (Bardon Centre, Mt.Cootha which is a great venue tucked into a rainforest setting). Stephen Thorne leads the organisation team for this event.
The call for papers is now open, until June 30th. For full details, see OSDC 2009 call for papers.
We’ll definitely be there, particularly since it’s very close to Arjen’s house. And perhaps we’ll get some talks accepted on MySQL and other topics. We’ll definitely be submitting some proposals!
We are almost there. Four days more, and then it's over. The CfP for the MySQL Users Conference 2009 ends on November 5th, 2008.
We have already received more proposals than we got last year, and (yes!) many of them are innovative.
Thanks to all the submitters.
I have still a few wishes, though.
There are still no proposals or very little on
- The event scheduler
- OpenOffice integration
- The plugin architecture
- MySQL Proxy
If you have a technical story to tell about one of the subjects above, don't be shy, and come forward!
And of course, if you have some innovative ideas on any topic related to MySQL, feel free to submit a proposal.
The MySQL Users Conference and Expo 2009 call for participation has been extended. You have now time until November 5th to submit a proposal.
At the end of the regular CfP, we received 284 proposals, which is about 100 more than we got last year, before the extension. So, we are pleased, but we want more proposals for a better choice.
In particular, what is notably absent from the proposals, is contribution from other Sun communities. Java, Glassfish, Netbeans, Solaris, OpenOffice, are either completely amiss or faintly represented. We need good technical presentations on the above topics, involving MySQL usage and integration. And remember, the theme of the conference is …[Read more]
OK. I was exceedingly optimistic, but not too much. I said that we may get enough submissions by the end of the regular CfP, and I was almost right. At midnight of October 22nd, we got 284 submissions, which is about 100 proposals more than last year (before extending), but not as much as we got after the extension.
Well done, MySQL Community!
But since we are hard to please, we want to have at least the same number of proposals that we had last year (I am sure we'll get more!), and so we are extending for two weeks. You have time until November 5th to submit a …
“Reminders work. At least on me.” I confessed in my previous CfP posting.
Well, guess what also works on me? Deadline extensions! I aim at making most (ehh, all) deadlines, but at times, I fail. And I have observed similar behaviour in others.
And therefore we have extended our CfP to 5 November 2008 (all fellow Europeans out there: “midnight 11/05/2008 PST” looks like mid May, but isn’t).
Some key points:
- We’re looking at high quality presentations
- We’re looking at innovation, i.e. *new* things
- We’re looking at covering main areas of MySQL …
Still 5 days until the end of the call for participation.
Hurry up! The deadline is October 22, 2008.
Yes. I know what you are thinking. Every year it's hurry hurry and then they extend at the last minute.
Probably so. Or maybe not. After my last reminder, the number and the quality of submissions has improved. And we may manage to get what we want without extensions. If that happens, your only chance for a podium is to submit before October 22nd.
If we get enough good submissions by them, we won't extend. Meaning that if you were counting on an extension to send your proposal, it may be too late.

Reminders work. At least on me. I try to Get Things Done (TM) efficiently, but slips do happen. And when they do, reminding me has a good chance to influence my priorities. I hope I’m not alone in this fallibility.
A few items to remember:
- We have plenty already, but we’re looking for more proposals. It does make our selection process harder (that’s when the Program Committee sits down and asks itself “what’s right for the conference and its participants”), but that’s a task that we are happy to work on.
- The theme of the conference is “Innovation …
