Some time ago, MySQL Forge went offline.
As part of the Forge dismissal operations, I got a backup of my snippets from the MySQL community team, and I have been lazily looking around for an alternative place where to put them.
I found such a place: Github GIST
Gist is a simple way to share snippets and pastes with others. All gists are git repositories, so they are automatically versioned, forkable and usable as a git repository.
Out of my 25 snippets, these are the ones that still look useful (at least, people have been asking me about those).

Forge was intended to be a community wiki resource for sharing
information with each other. However, over the last few
years, we have seen Forge used less and less by MySQL

- The Wiki, which is full of irreplaceable documentation, such as the MySQL internals, description of preview features, slides and recordings of MySQL University, manual of many tools (such as the …

The MySQL Community Team maintains a calendar to keep track of Open Source events and conferences that might be relevant from a MySQL point of view (either by submitting a talk, sponsoring or attending it). This calendar is now public - you can either look at the HTML version on the MySQL Forge or subscribe to the iCal feed (e.g. using Mozilla Sunbird or Lightning).
Are we missing an event? If you know any other events that should be included in this calendar, please submit your suggestions via this …[Read more]

Giuseppe stumbled over this website and recommended it to me as a potential useful service for organizing the registrations of the OpenSQL Camp: Eventbrite is a Python/MySQL-powered web site (judging from their job openings) that provides the following:

Eventbrite is free if your event is free. If you sell tickets to your event, Eventbrite collects a small fee per ticket. So just like you, Eventbrite wants your event …[Read more]

Tim’s got a Q&A with Nick Sieger, who’s one of the chieftains behind Kenai. I find it amusing that the comparison is made against Google Code and GitHub - has SourceForge hit irrelevancy? I’m surprised Launchpad isn’t mentioned.
Very Cover Flow like UI, with slider, etc. That’s Elliot Murphy, ex-Dolphin, current Ubuntero in the pic above
Nick goes on to say “We need a place to nurture and grow our open source communities that we …[Read more]
