First MySQL/NoSQL/Cloud Latin American Conference

My impressions: Considering that this conference was the first one of its kind in Argentina, I have to say it was great. Small, but great. Not many people knew about the event, but the response was still pretty good.

Oracle Direct NFS: How to Start
