Unlike previous years when the number of conferences with MySQL content diminishes after the O’Reilly MySQL and OSCON conferences (Open SQL Camp excluded), this year has a lot on offer.
- Open SQL Camp Europe Edition on Saturday 21st and Sunday 22nd August
Upcoming next month in September:
- MySQL Sunday at Oracle Open World on September 18 in San Francisco includes 4 tracks and around 15 quality speakers. (Big numbers of attendees also rumored but yet unconfirmed).
- The inaugural Surge Scalability conference in Baltimore will include presentations by myself and Baron Schwartz (Percona being sponsors) as well as talks from other popular sites using MySQL.
If your in SF for the MySQL Sunday you may also want to come for the SF MySQL Meetup on the preceeding Thursday night where I’ll be giving my talk on “Common MySQL Scalability problems, and how to fix them”.
- Open SQL Camp in Boston from Friday, Oct 15th in the evening, ending Sunday Oct 17th
Europeans will be busy in November where you will find dedicated MySQL tracks with multiple speakers at DOAG and UKOUG. Other MySQL talks can be found at SAPO Codebits 2010 and BGOUG.
And for South America, stay tuned. October will be your month!
There is also a great event calendar maintained by the MySQL community team on the Forge.
