I have been working on my PowerPoint all morning and realized that (even though high speed wireless will be available at the resort) to follow along and build a database with me using the tools... you may want to download Workbench and GUI Tools prior to the meetings (same for Missoula Meetup folks).
You can get MySQL Workbench here:
and the MySQL GUI tools here:http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/gui-tools/5.0.html
That way you will be able to follow along with the presentation (if you so desire).
I'm getting stoked... it's going to be awesome (no partiality).
