MySQL Community Team events and a new member of the community Team

Every so often, the members of the MySQL Community Team look back at the previous business year to help plan for events for the next business year. Last year Giuseppe, Lenz, and I visited Boston, San Francisco, Brussels, Dubai, Sydney, Los Angeles, Wellington, Lisbon, Prishtina, Madrid, Birmingham, Columbia, Santa Clara, Nuremberg, Orlando, and other cities. This includes shows like the Open DBA Camp, Collaborate, FOSDEM, UKOUG, POSSCON, SCaLE, DOAG, SAPO CodeBits, and several local user groups. We travel so much to spread the word about MySQL and to find out from you how to make MySQL better.

We continuously search for events but we may have missed yours. If you have an event coming up on the calendar, please drop me a line just to make sure it gets on our list. You can expect to find us at events like Oracle Open World, OSCON, and the Open Source Business Conference. Or at the San Francisco MySQL Users Group or MySQL SIG of the Dallas Oracle Users Group. For the past few weeks there has been only me to cover most of the shows. Please be sure to meet us at these shows.

Welcome Keith Larson to the MySQL Community Team

Keith Larson is the newest addition to the MySQL Community Team and you will be hearing more from him in the near future. I will not steal his thunder but please be on the lookout for his contributions.

    Hey, excellent news! Welcome, Keith. I am glad to see that the MySQL Community Relations Team at Oracle is getting more support.

    FWIW, I will be speaking about What’s new in MySQL 5.5 at the LinuxTag in Berlin on Friday, May 13th:

  2. Hi Dave,
    Thanks for the update!
    We would love to see someone from the MySQL team (especially Engineering) at the Open Database Camp in Sardinia, May 6-7-8, 2011 (Oracle is a sponsor!)

    Thank you very all very much. I look forward to being able to work with all of you and help spread the word about MySQL. It is the database I have used for 10+ yrs now and I am more than happy to support it and the community behind it.
