There are many folks who want to go to the MySQL Users Conference in Santa Clara, California from April 23 - 27. However, not everyone can afford to go. Technocation is committed to helping folks get the education and networking contacts so important to IT professionals. So, we're opening up our very first campaign!

This page lists links to MySQL 5.0 binaries. If you have a MySQL binary you would like listed here, please contact email@example.com -- if you would like, we will also provide free hosting for the binary if you prefer to minimize your bandwidth.
The official MySQL enterprise binaries are only available via a MySQL contract -- see https://shop.mysql.com/enterprise/ for price, product and service comparisons. All contracts include support.
We believe that MySQL will alternate versions and release numbers (much like the Linux Kernel) odd being community, even being enterprise. Enterprise and Community versions are the same, up to MySQL 5.0.33, the first separate version.
In a short sentence: I am impressed. The sound quality (on the large version) is almost exactly what I heard. Granted, I have some hearing loss, but I forgot to bring the microphone, and you can still hear audience questions very well. The video quality is great, too. The hard disk is perfect, because files can be copied over or burned directly to DVD. It records in MPEG-4 format.
The 1 hour 38 minute talk took up less than 6 gigs of space raw (I forget how much exactly, but it cuts the files into 2G chunks, and there were 3). This gives at least 10 hours of recording time before needing to dump to disk. This is a very exciting prospect for the MySQL Conference and Expo at the end of April, I’ll be able to video a LOT.
Many companies provide resources for training and education. However, sometimes those resources are not enough, or certain learning opportunities denied because they are not squarely in a person's job focus.
Sharing knowledge is also expensive. Writing a book is not a money-making venture, and speaking at different locations is not easy to fund.
