Oracle Open World MySQL Sessions

Just ten days until Oracle Open World and MySQL is going to have a big presence! 
“Focus on MySQL” overall schedule is available here:

Here are a couple thoughts of mine about the week:
Support and visit the MySQL Community Kiosk at Moscone West Hall Level 2 as much as possible.

Sunday @ Moscone West 
A great line-up of presentations by the IOUG/MySQL Community itself. It will be hard to pick which sessions to see. MySQL ACE members Ronald Bradford and Giuseppe Maxia are some examples of the experts talking on Sunday.

Monday @ Marriot Marquis
The MySQL keynote by Tomas Ulin, of course, should not be missed.
Catch sessions by Oracle engineers and MySQL ACE members such as Sherri Cabral, Sarah Novotny, and Yoshinori Matsunobu.

Tuesday @ Marriot Marquis
Looks to have great sessions on MySQL replication, MySQL for Oracle DBAs, MySQL on Windows, as well as InnoDB and the MySQL roadmap. All look to be good to see.

Also take note of the hands on labs and learn from the expert himself.
MySQL Workbench: Developing MySQL Applications on Windows
- Mike Zinner, Software Development Director, Oracle
Tuesday at 11:45am – Marriott Marquis Salon 10/11

The MySQL Community Reception is also open to everyone,  space is limited so register today.

Wednesday @ Marriot Marquis
NoSQL, backup,monitor, data recovery and protection, scalability and Oracle integration talks from the experts. Mat Keep, Andrew Morgan, Rob Young, Lars Thalmann just to name a few.

Thursday @ Marriot Marquis
NoSQL Interfaces to MySQL Cluster, by Craig Russell, and What causes MySQL downtime, by Baron Schwartz a MySQL ACE member,  both look like good sessions. Cloud Computing solutions for MySQL is another good one by Charles Bell.

These are just a few of the 47 MySQL Sessions. All of the sessions are going to be loaded with knowledge from MySQL experts and it will be tough to pick  which expert you want to listen and learn from.
