The Boston MySQL User Group was successful yet again! I was a bit worried about my presentation, that it would be too basic or folks would have wanted to see actual code and scripts, but it turned out well.
Special thanx to Mike Kruckenberg for taking the video and taking pictures!
Folks who were at the presentation — feel free to let me know what you thought of it. Folks not at the presentation — feel free to watch the video and let me know what you think. You can download the PDF slides here.
Technocation and the OurSQL podcast is looking for volunteers to review the latest edition of the MySQL Cookbook by Paul DuBois, http://my.safaribooksonline.com/059652708X. This version, released Nov. 1 2006, is updated for MySQL 5.0.
You can sign up to write a written review on technocation.org (and it will be submitted to the book's websites as well) or to record a review to be featured on the OurSQL podcast. In return, you will receive credit as a featured writer/voice and get to keep your review copy of the book. You will share rights to the review with Technocation, so that you can post the article wherever you choose, and Technocation can also post the review to the website or to the OurSQL podcast.
