Soooooooo, is the MySQL conference going to fizzle out in 2010? If you have been busy waiting to see what will happen with Oracle/Sun/MySQL then you probably didn’t notice that the call for papers did not go out to the community for 2010 UC. I don’t know about you but the MySQL Conference is something I look forward to every year and enjoy attending. Just being there is great for networking and keeping up on innovation not to mention getting out of the office for the better part of a week!
I was planning on submitting a few talks of my own this year but am wondering if the UC in 2010 will even happen. Sure there are some dates around it, April 12-15, found on http://www.mysqlconf.com/
but no other information.
I know that the Percona conference
is scheduled for April 12-13 this year. I really like the Percona conference given that it provides more choices for everyone involved with MySQL. Some people might think that having both at the same time might take away from the traditional MySQL UC; however, in the end, we are all a part of the same MySQL community and can benefit from both!
If the MySQL UC in 2010 does not happen for some reason I will be totally bummed out but maybe I can still do a “lightning talk” again at the Percona conference.
If you know when the MySQL community can send in papers for the 2010 UC let use know!
