Oracle OpenWorld can be pretty intimidating. Besides the extra fifty thousand bodies in an around Moscone Center in San Francisco, there is an overload of amazing information that bombards you from all directions. And then comes the really hard decision of which sessions to attend. This year MySQL has three rooms being used for sessions.
The Catalog of sessions shows over 1800 session and MySQL is the subject of fifty three of those. The problem is that you can not be in three places at once!
For example on Monday morning there are two tutorials and a great session at the same time.
