I love living in Alabama. I was born and raised in Huntsville. However, Birmingham has always seemed a bit behind in technology compared to what I do for a living. There is good reason. The industry here is medical, banking, industrial and utilities. I don't really want my doctors keeping my medical records in an alpha release of anything. Same goes for my banking and utilities. But, as this page shows, the companies here are catching up. So, I am happy to present MySQL to as many people as I can in this town. Hopefully I will help some folks that have not been exposed to MySQL or any open source for that matter.
The event is part of our local Linux user group's (BALU) planned events.
