Dedicated to "Innovation Everywhere," the conference co-presented by Sun Microsystems, O'Reilly Media, and MySQL, Join us as we to explore and create the best database applications, tools, and software through more than 120 sessions and in-depth tutorials encompassing a wide range of skill levels across 16 tracks.

MySQL Conference brings over 2,000 open source and database enthusiasts together to harness the power of MySQL and celebrate the huge MySQL ecosystem. All around the world, people just like you are innovating with MySQL—and MySQL is fueling the innovation engine by releasing new mission critical solutions to help you work smarter. This deeply technical conference brings all of that creativity, energy, and knowledge together in one place for four very full days.

The open atmosphere of the MySQL Conference & Expo helps IT professionals and community members launch and develop the best database applications, tools, and software. As companies of all sizes look for ways to remain competitive and manage costs, open source software and tools provide valuable and efficient solutions for the enterprise.
