Sphinx at MySQL Meetup at San Francisco

I will be presenting at upcoming MySQL Meetup at San Francisco this Thursday, August 13. I will talk about Sphinx covering the new cool features this search engine has as well as showing the demo on how simple it is to use Sphinx to implement high performance full text search for your MySQL driven application.

We also will have the raffle for 2 tickets for Performance Optimization for MySQL with Innodb and XtraDB Single Day Intense Training Workshop for either Santa Clara or San Francisco locations.
