MySQL has made a significant impact in the world of modern computing. Open source technology, especially databases, are enabling organizations to cost-effectively build some of the largest and most scalable enterprise applications in the world.

Invest in yourself and the future of your business by coming to the 4th annual MySQL Users Conference. MySQL AB is teaming up with O'Reilly Media, Inc. to make it the biggest and best we've ever organized.   We're bringing together over 1000 key MySQL developers, gurus, experts, and users.   More than 110 sessions will cover:

  • Performance tuning and optimization
  • How to use new MySQL 5.0 and 5.1 features
  • Best practices sessions featuring top MySQL developers
  • Implementing Scale-Out architectures for high-volume computing
  • Cluster and replication technologies
  • PHP and MySQL Web Development
  • Interactive tutorials to help you develop your technical skills
  • Real-world case studies from top companies using MySQL

The conference will feature great opportunities to meet people from the MySQL community including the developers who've worked on the latest and greatest features.   The Exhibit Hall will also showcase dozens of new and exciting third party products. Evening events and birds-of-a-feather gatherings give you the chance to meet informally with experts to network, discuss technical challenges you may have been battling with, and learn new tricks that can help you get the most out of MySQL.

Since I'm the Program Chair for the conference, and the manager of Community Relations at MySQL, the most important part of my job is actually to listen. So I hope you'll come out to Santa Clara to learn and share your story.
