Getting ready for FrOScon 2009

I arrived yesterday in St. Augustin, near Bonn in Germany. After a good day of hitchhiking (weather is beautiful here) I stayed with my Pakistani Couchsurfing host and we had an extremely interesting evening talking about the gigantic cultural differences between western civilization and Pakistani civilization. It beats staying in a hotel by about a million points 🙂

This morning I headed to the FrOScon HQ at the fachhochschule to help out with whatever was needed. Turns out that was a bit premature (misunderstanding on my part), so I have had some time to catch up on mail and give some more attention to my talk on Saturday. I’ll be helping out throughout the and the whole day tomorrow with things though.

I’ll be talking about MySQL MMM, a project that I have invested quite a bit of time in getting to know. My talk will outline what MMM is, what it’s not and an example of our setup at Open Query. It’s a full hour long, so it should be very interesting to be able to go into that much detail.

If you are near St. Augustin, make sure to come by for Froscon, as it’s schedule has some very interesting talks and you’ll also have a good chance to meet fellow MySQL-geeks in the OpenSQLCamp dev-room.
