OurSQL Episode 103: Making a Connection, part 1

This week, we talk about the MySQL Connect format, and present our "Guide to MySQL Connect for Developers" and the few tech talks we think both DBAs and developers will find useful. In Ear Candy, we talk about how InnoDB stores the binary log position of the last successfully executed statement in its recovery logs. In At the Movies, we highlight Andrew Aksyonoff's talk on Sphinx at SkySQL's MySQL solutions day last April.

Events
FrOSCon will be held Saturday and Sunday, August 25th - 26th at the University of Applied Sciences Bonn-Rhein-Sieg in Germany. Registration is a small fee for personal attendees, only 5 euros. It is more for corporate attendees. There will be a MySQL and friends room this year, as in years past.

MySQL Connect will be held in San Francisco on Saturday September 29th and Sunday September 30th. This is a technical conference about MySQL, bringing together MySQL engineers at Oracle and the MySQL Community, and will include sessions about the latest MySQL features and roadmaps. The schedule is now online.
