I will be speaking at August Penguin 2011 (אוגוסט פינגווין), on August 12th in Ramat-Gan, Israel.
I'll be holding a non-technical talk about MySQL, titled "MySQL and the Open Source Sphere". In this talk I will be presenting my impressions of the nature of open source development of MySQL and surroundings: the core server, the various forks, patches, 3rd party tools, companies involved, etc. So this is a general "get to know who's who & what's what in the MySQL world".
This is a 30 minutes talk. I will surely not cover every open source development in this field, so my apologies in advance to those I leave out. The truth is, there's so much going on lately I can hardly keep up with reading the announcements. Truly, this is a wonderful time for open source development with MySQL.
Talk will be held in Hebrew.
See you there!
