Off to MySQL 2005

Well, tomorrow I'm off to the MySQL 2005 User's conference in Santa Clara. The last time I was in California was OSCON 2002, before that was back in the early 90s. I have never been to San Francisco (other than for a connecting flight) or the bay area so am excited to see what it's like. I've certainly read a lot from the weblogs of folks who are working out there.

The conference agenda looks excellent, looking forward to the tutorials and presentations.

I'm also going to be maximizing free time to make some significant progress on the book. We're moving into the 2nd drafts (having gotten them back with comments from a technical reviewer and the editor). Unfortunately, I haven't finished all my first drafts.

Besides attending the conference, and spending long hours writing, I plan to spend at least a few hours in San Francisco (probably Sunday before I can check into the hotel). I also plan to go up and meet a few folks at Apress office in Berkeley. Oh, and I thought I'd try to get up to SBC park on Wednesday night and see the Giants play.
