NoVA MySQL May Meetup


  • 7:00 - 7:30 Beer, Food and Socializing
  • 7:30 - 8:10 MySQL 5.6 Overview

We are very excited that MySQL 5.6 went GA a couple of months ago.  Tony Holmes from Oracle will be presenting an overview on all that 5.6 has to offer.

  • 8:10 - 8:20 Break
  • 8:20 - 9:00 What Drives DBAs a Little Crazy

Mike DelNegro and Kevin Pettit of AOL will be sharing some of the things that developers sometimes do that tend to drive DBAs a little nuts. :-)  It basically will be a MySQL development best practices discussion.

  • 9:00 - 9:30 General networking, etc.

AOL will again provide the venue, food and drinks.  Both MySQL novices and old hands should find each of these talks compelling.  Hope to see you there!
