Heading off to the MySQL Conference

MySQL Conference & Expo
After some long months of intensive bug fixing, it's time to pack up the stuff and head off to the MySQL Conference & Expo. Since this is actually my first MySQL (User's) Conference, it's bound to be interesting.

We've got a full schedule here, so it will definitely not be boring.

Monday, April 23, 8:30am - 5:00pm, Ballroom D (with lunch 12:00am to 1:30pm). Lars, JDD and I am going to hold a replication tutorial for a full day where we'll go over some basics on how to set up replication to work properly, but also delve into some advanced stuff like row-based replication and cluster replication to see what it can do for you. This is a must for anybody that is seriously going to work with replication.

Tuesday, April 24, 10:45am - 11:45am, Ballroom F. Lars and I will keep a "Tips and Tricks" session on replication and bring a bunch of useful tricks for getting replication to work the way you want.

Tuesday, April 24, 7:30pm - 9:00pm, Bayshore. Lars, Jeremy Cole and I will have a BoF session where we'll have an open discussion about the future of replication. We will also bring some food for though and a digression into upcoming features like conflict handling.

Tuesday, April 24, 5:30pm - 6:15pm, Ballroom E. There will be a session on the replication roadmap where you will find Lars and me presenting some of the ideas that MySQL envision for the future. If you want to take part in making MySQL the best on-line database in the world, make sure to be there!

You will also find Chuck and me in the Guru bar from 2pm to 4:30pm the same day, so bring your problems and we'll give them a good beating!

On Friday, you will also find me at the Storage Engine Summit hosted by Brian.
