Thanks for stopping by.
This is the Bristol & South West MySQL meetup page. We started the group so we can get together and discuss MySQL and the surrounding technologies. Bristol and Bath are thriving places for tech companies and being that MySQL remains the most popular Open Source DBMS on the planet it's clear that there will be a few people in the area with MySQL to chaperone.
The aim of this group is to attract MySQL Dev and DBAs and we really want to appeal to the Rubists, Perl, Python, PHP, Linux Sys Admin users in the extended area.
There is no single commitment to venue so we can be moved from place to place depending on the need and we will regularly have someone talking on a topic which will be interesting to anyone using MySQL in their daily tasks.
Our friends at Basekit host our meetups and provide refreshments++
Percona are offering lots of goodies,tshirts,prizes and guest speakers.

Oracle's community manager Dave '@Stoker' Stokes is going to send stuff!
