MySQL Compatible Open Source Connectors

4 December 13:10 - 14:00 @ Orchard 1

Whilst MySQL has its own connector the licensing behind this can be somewhat prohibiting. It may also not meet all the needs of the modern developer.

This talk will go through all the MySQL compatible connectors in every language you can think of (and some you have probably never thought of). The pros/cons of each including licensing will be explained so you can pick the best one for your project.
