TOPIC: MySQL Databases

This is going to be geared towards the new developer, so we will keep it as basic as possible.

Sponsor and Moderator: Patrick Elward of Chicago Web Management.

1. Mitul Gandhi of Actonia Inc. will discuss Using PhpMyAdmin and HeidiSQL to manage MySQL databases

2. John Mahady will discuss these toolsets: MySQL Administrator 1.2, MySQL Query Browser 1.2 and MySQL Migration Toolkit 1.1.

3. Thomas Raef of will discuss basic db/table setup. Rights, and some basic
SQL commands; insert, select, delete, show, alter (all of these from the Command Line, not from PHPmyadmin).

This is sure to be an exciting night and afterwards, we'll open up the room to discussions with the speakers and each other. This way, everyone can participate.

Advance MySQL topics will be covered in September.
