February is going to be a busy meetup month for me. In addition to speaking in Raleigh I will visit Charlotte to speak at Meetup out there on February 23rd. Last year I visited Charlotte meetup was in the great place and we had great food and great crowd of people showing up. I will talk about Optimizing MySQL Configuration which I believe is a great topic for this meetup as it will be helpful for developers to learn basics MySQL configuration as well as for Advanced MySQL DBAs to learn a trick or two they did not know. As an extra treat for attendees I will bring exclusive discount to MySQL Conference and Expo as well as some signed High Performance MySQL 2nd Edition books to give away. See you there.
