The last MySQL session for this year’s Collaborate is over. There is another day of sessions to go but they will go on without MySQL-centric topics. The majority of those the MySQL Community Team have talked to are Oracle professionals looking to expand their support for existing MySQL instances in their organizations or those looking to move some aspect of their data over to MySQL. Many use Collaborate for obtaining technical information as they feel Oracle Open World is too frenzied to get niyty gritty details. Attendance at MySQL sessions were much larger than last year and demo pod booth action was heavy with those seeking specific answers to their questions. And they were seeking details on the NoSQL/SQL InnoDB/NDB interface, operational best practices, and MySQL cluster.
In 2013, Collaborate will be in Denver with a MySQL hungry audience. Hopefully you will be there next year!
