We will feature Dave Stokes of the MySQL Community Team (at Oracle) talking about MySQL 5.6:


MySQL 5.6 has many improvements and new features that you may not know about that you will want to exploit.  Find out how changes in replication, Global Transaction IDs, sub-partitions,
optimizer tracing, and other changes will make you life as a DBA better.


Free pizza and soda will be served, so please RSVP accurately.

    It was a short but sweet presentation, however it didn't give any information that could not be acquired through skimming over the release notes for 5.6. Maybe it was intended to be more interactive, but that failed on the audience side and as part of the audience was partially my fault as well.
