Lenka and I are at Oracle HQ for the Oracle Leadership Summit. This event is the start of the calendar year for us and brings the leaders of Oracle user groups together to share information. From around the world, leaders of IOUG, OHUG, and other groups to share ideas. The concept used by the Boston MySQL User Group with MySQL Marinate has caught the attention of quite a few folks. The vast majority of IOUG folks also run MySQL in their data centers and they are interested in seeing local MySQL Groups flourish.
So if you are interested in starting a new MySQL Users Group, let me or Lenka know AND contact your local IOUG chapter. We can aid you in getting meeting space in an Oracle office and your local IOUG chapter can help with other organizational issues when startinga group.
And be sure to say ‘hi’ at the Rocky Mountain Oracle Users Group Training …[Read more]

Three upcoming shows are excellent opportunities and are actively seeing you as a presenter.
- FOSDEM is February 2nd and 3rd in Brussels, Belgium. There will be a special MySQL dev room and the call for papers ends on December 21st.
- There is a new PHP conference in Florida! …
Please help me welcome a new member of the MySQL Community Team. Lenka Kasparova is based in Prague and joined Oracle with Sun acquisition in 2009-2010.
