I just wanted to briefly plug the MySQL User Conference. It will be held at the Doubletree in San Jose from April 10th - 12th 2003.
I'll be giving a couple talks as will many others. Check out the lineup here. Based on the talks and speakers, I'm really looking forward to it. I personally know many of the folks presenting. It should be a lot of fun and very informative.
The site is currently a bit out of date (it has me down for three talks rather than two), but I'm going to be giving two talks: MySQL Optimization, and Scaling MySQL. The first is a greatly condensed version of my 3 hour tutorial at OSCON this year. The second talk is completely new. It'll be about the various ways you can try to scale MySQL (many users, many connections, tons of data, high query rates), the bottlenecks you run into along the way, and possible solutions for them.
By the way, I should also mention that the MySQL web site recently got a new design that I think works very well. Great work, guys.
Ugh. I have to pack up my cube into boxes today so that the moves can move all my stuff from building B to building A tomorrow. Ugh. I have a lot of stuff to pack. A lot.
There goes productivity for today and tomorrow. But at least I'll get to have my weekly flying lesson tomorrow. Maybe I'll even do a double lesson since I don't have to be back to work. My stuff won't be available (including computers) until Friday morning anyway. Hmm.
