This is a cross-post from my personal blog. Are you involved with an open-source project that’s interesting to MySQL users, such as Nginx, PHPMyAdmin, Drupal, Jenkins, PHP, and so on? Percona just published the application form for dot-org groups to have a free expo hall booth in the Percona Live MySQL Conference in April.
The March meeting of the North Texas MySQL Users Group will be March 12th from five to seven PM at the Irving office. Pizza will be provided and a special guest speaker is double checking their schedule. Come come network, gather swag, and learn more about MySQL.
Please RSVP below by leaving a comment so we can plan on a) enough pizza, b) any special pizza topping request, and c) have enough meeting space for the pizza.
