Come joins us at a Birds of a Feather Session at OSCON
Moderated by: Dave Stokes
7:00pm Wednesday, 07/18/2012
MySQL is the most popular web database and last years MySQL BOF at OSCON attracted fifty people and ran well past the scheduled hour (so please put us early on the night and do not book the room right after). We had several big names in attendance as well as general users of the product. This was a valuable question and answer system for the MySQL developers and the community where both groups received lots of valuable information.
And we will have some free goodies to hand out!
I can not promise that all the MySQL Engineers and Staff at OSCON will be in attendance as 7PM PDT is too late/early for some of them. But please attend if you are in the area!
