2009 MySQL Conference/Camp Videos

Posted in: MySQL, Technical Track

It’s been just over three months since the April 2009 MySQL Users Conference and Expo. It took a while for the files to be processed, and then uploaded to www.technocation.org, and then I found out that the online streaming was not working properly. So I started playing with things, re-encoding some videos, updating the software, but to no avail.

Just as I was about to give up I got notification that Technocation, Inc. was accepted into YouTube‘s not-for-profit program, which allows movies larger than 10 minutes to be uploaded and viewed advertisement-free.

So then I had to upload the videos to YouTube and add descriptions.

So with no *further* delay, here are all the videos from the 2009 MySQL Conference and 2009 MySQL Camp:

The brief description — just the playlists:

In case anyone is wondering about videos from the Percona conference:

1) The videos above are all ones that either were taken by either myself or Augusto Bott.

2) Technocation has extended the invitation to Percona to utilize their resources for the videos from the Percona conference. This includes the YouTube account, but there has been no response from the Percona folks (which is OK, they’re busy, and the YouTube account was only approved July 9th, and Percona was informed during an IM conversation).

The offer is, of course, still open, to Percona and to anyone else that has videos that they’d like to make freely available to the public, that fall within the not-for-profit mission of Technocation, Inc – “To provide educational resources and monetary grants for IT professionals.”

I have no idea if the two presentations I did at the conference were recorded. Like the year before, I believe I checked the box to indicate I was ok with it being recorded … and that one eventually appeared (I believe it is linked to on MySQLforge).
