MySQL User Conference 2004 Call for Participation

MySQL User Conference 2004 Call for Participation
From Peter Zaitsev's "10 years of MySQL User Conferences" post.

MySQL AB is pleased to announce that the Call for Participation for the 2004 MySQL User Conference is now officially open. We encourage every MySQL user with something to say - from grey-bearded hackers and peach-fuzzed power users to corporate code wranglers and veteran DBAs - to drop by and write up your proposals for great sessions.

We are looking for sessions that speak to your peers: practical, pragmatic and clueful presentations that focus on how you solved problems in a demanding or unique technical environment.

Session that introduce a particular feature set or provide hands-on training to introduce newer developers to cutting edge functionality are also welcome (as is any cool or unique presentation).

You can give sessions that range in length from 5 minute lighting talks up to 90 minute power tutorials. We also have set aside slots for 30 minute technical briefs and standard hour long sessions.

Additionally we are looking for solid ideas from the community for Bird-of-a-Feather (BoF) sessions. These sessions give conference attendees a chance to meet and discuss topics of common interest with their peers.

Visit to suggest ideas for the BoFs that you would like to participate in.

The call for papers closes on January 14th. The conference will take place on April 14th to 16th in Orlando, Florida, USA.

The call for BoFs and lightning talks closes on February 14th.

If you want to briefly discuss your ideas, fill out the appropriate form at and make a note in your comment. I will write you back in a day or so with some extra input.

Good Luck! See you in Orlando!
