In 30 minutes I leave for the airport to begin my journey to this year’s MySQL Users Conference in Orlando, Florida. Last year’s conference interesting, and attendees enthusiastic. I expect more of the same this year.
Some sessions I’m particularly looking forward to attending tomorrow are:
- Best Practices: Using MySQL at Sabre
- Converting MS-SQL and Access Databases to MySQL
- Data Warehousing with MySQL
- MySQL 4.1 C API (I can use this for a book I’m writing)
- MaxDB - Easy Administration
I see several sessions on MaxDB, and that intrigues me. MaxDB seems to be SAP DB reborn, but is anyone really using it? I hope to find out. If my Thinkpad wasn’t in the shop getting a cracked keyboard bezel replaced, I’d hit that Hands on MaxDB installation workshop in the evening.
I’m excited to be going to the conference, and I hope to have some interesting news to report tomorrow.
