And I'm not saying this because I'm MySQL/Oracle employee ;-)) - just
expressing my personal feeling while flying back to Paris..
I really enjoyed this conference now much more than all previous years :
first of all having 5 days instead of 2 allows to have much more
networking than before (and usually it's the main goal for every
conference to create a lot of informal discussions and exchange on
then, the content - all excellent, no words.. there was so much new
stuff to discover and learn from other experiences, that I'm pretty
sure that each person at one moment during the conference should feel
a kind of "brain overflow" ;-) and what is good that there were talks
for any levels of skills -- so, it was very easy to progress on
understanding of each topic quickly and smoothly..
organization was just perfect : all in one place, no more running over
different floors/buildings, etc. ;-) having 30min breaks between talks
is really good as it allows to have an exchange related to presented
topics without impacting timing of the next talk / session (while we
could probably finish little bit later as well to have yet more
MySQL Customer Advisory Forum (CAF) - yet bigger and very well
organized as usually (while I'm not sure if all customers / users are
aware about this great possibility to discuss directly with MySQL
engineering, express all your wishes & issues, get the info from the
source about what is new, what is coming, what is planned, etc.) --
well, I know that many regretted on the last minute to have missed
subscription, so keep in mind this for the next year ;-))
- MySQL Reception - really good! specially that doors were open to anyone, including persons who are not attending the conference -- a true MySQL Community event!
Few wishes anyway for the next year :
would be great to have MySQL posters around the place where conference
is going ;-)
- would be great to have a kind of "closing conference" keynote(s), etc. to make a summary, to thank all attendees & organizers, to have some fun instead just see doors closing and people leaving..
But well, all-in-all - simply great MySQL Conference, which may become only better over a time! so, book your agenda ahead for the next year -- pretty sure it'll be yet more fun ;-)
