The MySQL track at Kaleidoscope in Washington, DC during June 28-July 1st is set! Here is the schedule, Lincoln VI is the MySQL track room.
Ronald has done a super job and spent a ton of hours in the past several weeks coordinating this effort. Work has kept me much busier than normal, but I have lent some time to the coordination as well. It is a credit mostly to Ronald that we have been able to plan an entire 19-session conference track, complete with confirming speakers, in less than a month. (You may notice the schedule does not have all 19 sessions full, we are just waiting for some more speakers to confirm details.)
Whether or not you made it to last month’s O’Reilly MySQL User Conference & Expo, and whether you are an expert or casual user, the sessions at Kaleidoscope will teach you new and exciting things. This is a credit to the planning we did (and again, Ronald spent the lion’s share of time on this) — we did not just want to re-do the same content from the April conference, and we wanted something that would be accessible to developers and DBAs who know what they’re doing when it comes to writing SQL queries, but may or may not know how MySQL itself works.
I will definitely be giving away copies of my book, The MySQL Administrator’s Bible, and Ronald will be giving away copies of his new book, Expert PHP and MySQL, so the conference is definitely not-to-be-missed!
