That’s right. MySQL now has a user group in Paradise.
I am always looking into connecting with other MySQL professionals, to share the laughs and tears, and to enjoy what we love working with every day, MySQL. I have always wanted to bring us all together, and I thought that this would have a good chance of doing so. Since I live in Malta, this made for the perfect location for it. If you live in Malta, or perhaps in Sicily or Tunisia, and want to take a trip, please do join us at our first meeting.
We will be having our first meeting in Mellieha, and please RSVP to me personally via email, westerlund (at) pythian.com if you want to attend. The date is set for Thursday, July 31st at 6pm. We will discuss the current use of MySQL, its future, and whatever else comes into mind. I myself would love to hear usage stories for our first meeting, so we all get an understanding of how MySQL is used in Malta and environs.
I will make sure there are some refreshments to be had.
Let’s keep ourself educated and aware of how other people solve problems that we all sometimes encounter, as well as their interesting technical solutions. And let’s have some fun doing so!
This sounds great, Nicklas. I wish *I* could attend.
I guess if you get to MySQL storage engines, you might have a Maltese Falcon discussion. ;)
Yeah! *I* would like to attend as well! :-)
You are all welcome to join us, but I will not cover travel expenses ;-) (I might be able to arrange carpooling from the airport though!)
I’m quite happy that pythian will hold a meeting in the same country where I live :)
