Its that time of year again. The O’Reilly MySQL Conference & Expo 2011 happening April 11-14 2011, in Santa Clara, California. As co-chair this year with Brian Aker, I’m pretty excited at the content available. It is certainly more diverse and if you thought you knew everything about MySQL, remember you also want to learn about the ecosystem surrounding it.
No one just deploys MySQL standalone these days. There’s an ecosystem. Heck, even in the MySQL world, there is an ecosystem building out. Look at the schedule grid, and see how diverse things are. Yes, there are talks on CouchDB, PostgreSQL, Cassandra, Eucalyptus, OpenStack, “NoSQL” and more.
Looking at the theme, the ecosystem and beyond, it will give attendees a pretty good idea on how to create a good reference architecture; their own reference architecture. Learn from all the talks, and the experiences of the people in the trenches.
So what are you waiting for? Register already! Best price registration ends soon (26/01), so don’t wait — save some cash for the drink-fuelled night chats at all the birds-of-a-feather sessions that spillover to the bar ;-)
