MySQL AB is a global company. The employees are spread around the globe. It is impressive to see that this works for a technology company, where high-bandwidth communication between its main players is crucial to their success.
Once in a while though, they need to meet in person. This year, all developers meet in Heidelberg, Germany for a week. They will have workshops, training and lots of get-togethers.
MySQL AB even invited a few community members to take part in the event for two days. I managed to sneak in there and I am looking forward to see a lot of the people I met in Santa Clara earlier this year and those I have not met, yet, but read a lot online. To top it all, Damien is there. Guess what we are going to talk about.
I promised to blog my hands off in exchange for the invitation, so expect some coverage next week!
