MySQL Community on Freenode

I recently posted about how we, MySQL Community Managers, are trying to reach out more to the MySQL User groups and the MySQL Community.

The room has been quiet to far but it is a new room. You can find us in #MySQL_Community & #MySQL_user_groups on freenode.

A few common issues have come out that I have heard before. We as a community can work to address these concerns.
  • List of user groups
  • Few volunteers
  • Difficulty in getting good legit speakers
  • Low attendance
  • Location for meetings
Some of these concerns have been addressed by the community in the past. 

If you have thoughts on any of these topics come by the chat room on freenode.

I already learned about a new MySQLCluster training in Brazil from the room today.  I look forward to hearing more from you all.
