If our meetup is about open source databases, MySQL is clearly one of our favorite topics. And we covered it several times. Finally we manage to do it with MySQL Community Manager, David Stokes!

If you're in London, you're welcome to come and meet him. He will tell us about the future of MySQL. And don't forget to prepare your questions for David!

The event is kindly sponsored by Oracle.
