The MySQL Connect conference is being held Sept 29-30th in San Francisco and I will present on my beginners journey into NoSQLand with MySQL's NoSQL implementation . Much of the technology for this talk I was not overly familiar with, so it is a lot of fun and very enlightening for me.
This years Zendcon is October 22 - 25th in Santa Clara and I will be presenting on MySQL replication and server variable tuning. Both subjects that I enjoy and plan to update for the latest versions of MySQL.
So if you plan to be at either conference - be sure to find me so we can sit down for a chat and a drink or 2.
