This week I was the invited speaker to give a 4 hr presentation to the Federal Government Sector in Washington DC on “Best Practices in Migrating to MySQL“. This was a followup to my day long “MySQL for the Oracle DBA Bootcamp” which I presented in Washington DC last year. It was good to see a number of attendees from my first DC presentation.
There was good attendance across various government departments and companies providing services to the government sector, as well a variety of job descriptions.
Thanks also to Baron Schwartz creator of Maatkit who as my invited guest was nice enough to table a list of attendee questions, which is always a good reference for revising slides and writing more blog posts.
You can find the first of seven sessions online in my presentations section.
Thanks to Baron Schwartz for his follow-up blog posts Migrating US Government applications from Oracle to MySQL and 50 things to know before migrating Oracle to MySQL.
