In the next 6 weeks or so, I will be doing a bunch of speaking. You can come see me if you will be in the New York City metro area (New Brunswick, New Jersey); Charlottesville, Virginia; near Helsinki, Finland and Charlotte, North Carolina.
I will be speaking at the Professional IT Community Conference about MySQL Security. This low-cost conference run by the League of Professional System Administrators, or LOPSA, is not to be missed. The conference runs from Friday, May 11th through Saturday, May 12th. I have spoken at both previous PICC’s and I learned plenty from system administrators while I was not speaking.
At the end of May, I will be speaking at the OUG Harmony Conference in Finland about MySQL security and “Optimizing MySQL JOINs and Subqueries”. If you will be near Aulanko and are interested in MySQL, make sure to come by!
At the beginning of June, I will bring the MySQL Security talk and a talk on Intermediate MySQL Administration to Open Database Camp at the Southeast LinuxFest in Charlotte, North Carolina. This is the first year we are co-locating the Open Database Camp, and I think it will be very successful! Southeast LinuxFest is *free*, although OpenSQLCamp is looking for sponsors – co-location is not free, but it is easier since we have a fixed cost and only have to fundraise until we hit that fixed cost.
