At the Movies
This week in at the movies, we present Giuseppe Maxia at the 2011 O'Reilly User Conference & Expo doing a 20 minute booth demo about MySQL Sandbox, as recorded by friend of the show Colin Charles. As Giuseppe says, "it takes longer to explain how to use MySQL sandbox than it does to actually use it."
