October Meetup – Intro to MySQL

In a step back from previous meetings, we’ll shift the focus to introductory topics about MySQL. Much of the feedback that I’ve gotten is that while some of the more advanced discussion is good, there is a desire for more basic information.

With that in mind, the October Meetup will be just that – an Intro to MySQL. ┬áSome of the topics will include:

  • General database concepts
  • What is MySQL?
  • How is it used?
  • How can I get started with it?

I’ll also include a demo showing a MySQL installation on Windows for those that may not be comfortable diving right into Linux.

As usual, food will be provided and we’ll be raffling off a copy of High Performance MySQL (courtesy of Percona) as well! ┬áPlease RSVP as well so we can get an accurate count for food.

Hope to see you there!
