A Global Reach


This week has been the MySQL Conference & Expo in Santa Clara, which has been all consuming for over 1,400 registered attendees.  It's the biggest conference we've ever done and it's nice to see participants from more than 30 countries including Antarctica, Argentina, Belgium, Brazil, Bulgaria, China, Croatia, Canada (Yay!), Egypt, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Haiti, India, Italy, Ireland, Israel, Japan, Korea, Mexico, Nigeria, Norway, Philippines, Russia, Sierre Leone, Singapore, Spain, South Africa, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, Thailand, UK and the US. 

The tutorials on Monday included topics such as Scaling, MySQL Cluster, Replication, MySQL 5.1, MySQL Monitoring & Advisory Service, Performance Tuning, Writing your own storage engine and other topics.  Special thanks to all the tutorial presenters including Brian Aker, Lars, Mats, Kai Voigt, Roland, Sarah, Jay Pipes, Stewart Smith (who was guiding people with hands-on instruction w/ Cluster!), JD Duncan, Andy Bang, Rob Young, Domas and others who helped make these sessions a success. Many of the sessionswere sold out and just jam packed with people eager to learn more.

And we had a great partner meeting which had more partners than ever before.  I was told that over 80 registered but there were close to 150 in the room. (Maybe because they heard there would be beer at the end!)  We rolled out our new MECA partner program (but maybe we should say it's a MEGA partner
program since there are so many partners!) and Robin and Jeffrey also shared our roadmap with the partners which went over well.
