MySQLConf Pythian “Birds of a Feather” Invitation

Posted in: MySQL, Technical Track

Hello everyone who is attending MySQLConf 2008!

I am finally able to announce when and where the Pythian BoF session has been scheduled! It will be in the Alameda room, 7:30-8:30pm on Tuesday, April 15th.

The session, titled “Ask the Pythian Maestro”, will be attended by myself and our two MySQL team leads, Sheeri K. Cabral and Augusto Bott.

This should be a fun session and hopefully people will show up. Attendees will get to:

  • Schmooze with Augusto, Sheeri, and I, ask us your technical questions and find out if we know what we’re talking about
  • Meet active Pythian customers – I have just been informed of the schedule and I am hopeful that several can attend
  • Find out what it’s like to work at Pythian if that’s what you’re in to
  • Find out what it’s like to have Pythian as collaborators at your workplace
  • Have some drinks on me. Depending on the rules, I’ll have some on premises and we’ll head to a local drinking joint afterwards for sure

That sounds like a lot of fun to me. I hope to see you there.
