IOUG's Year of the Member: The Focus is on MySQL

2010 is IOUG's Year of the Member, and each month the IOUG identifies available resources and member benefits that provide relevant information on specific hot topics. This month's focus is on MySQL.

Access valuable technical information on MySQL by visiting the IOUG homepage to find quick links to white papers, presentations and Webinars, including Integrating SQL Server and Oracle Without Programming: Oracle Generic Connectivity and MySQL Upgrades With No Downtime.

Looking for more education? IOUG is hosting a half-day seminar on MySQL in Chicago on Tuesday, September 28! Join us for an afternoon of education and networking to learn about the following:

  • The 5-minute DBA: A crash course to MySQL DBA troubleshooting and optimizations
  • The MySQL Sandtraps: The top developer and DBA mistakes seen over and over again at client sites
  • MySQL Scalability and High Availability: Options for scaling and hardening your MySQL database environment and how are they different or similar to Oracle or SQL Server

OpenSource Projects and releases you need to be aware of: What tools are available to help you manage your environment. What's the deal with all these storage engines? What's a MySQL fork? And why should you pay attention to all these things...

Plus, IOUG will be rolling out MySQL Webinars throughout September and through the end of 2010. The first one, MENTOR Your Indexes, takes place next Tuesday, September 21.

Catch more on MySQL by participating in IOUG's sessions at Oracle OpenWorld next week in San Francisco. Click here for more details on all of IOUG's sessions for the week.

Stay tuned for next month's focus on Virtualization!
