Are you close to Munich? Are you available next Friday afternoon? Would you like to meet some MySQLers? And some Sun employees, whom we hope to lure from Sun's German headquarters in Heimstetten?
Then, come to the Hilton where many of the Bundesliga football clubs stay when playing against FC Bayern MÃƒÂ¼nchen: Munich Hilton am Tucherpark, close to Englischer Garten.
I suggest you to be there at about 14:30. We theoretically start at 14, but two Sun execs and I are arriving late from Hamburg that same afternoon. We expect to be there by 14:45.
What will we discuss?
Well, the setup is the same as for many other meetups, between MySQLers, customers, community, and Sun employees. We'll tell you that we're continuing our support of all popular operating systems, and all popular development environments -- just like we've stressed elsewhere. We'll share our thinking on what will change and what will stay the same, and on why Sun's acquisition made sense for MySQL, for Sun, and -- most importantly -- for community. Most of all, though, we plan on discussing with you, answering your questions, and learning from your experiences in working with MySQL (the product, the company, the community).
You can drop by unannounced. However, we'd like to know how much drinks and snacks to ask Hilton to prepare. And that's why I'd like you to email Jean-JÃƒÂ©rÃƒÂ´me Schmidt (jjschmidt at mysql.com) and tell him you think you'll attend. This is especially if you're from MySQL or from Sun. Remember, we hope to lure many Sun employees to quit early on Friday afternoon and attend the meetup with MySQL community members and MySQL GmbH employees!
