2007 MySQL Conference Comes to a Close

And just like that the 2007 MySQL Conference is over and folks are on their way back home, or off to vacations, or whatever comes next.

It has been a great week hearing how others are using technology to build good things. It has also been good to meet folks and have good conversation sharing ideas about what works, what doesn't work, and how to change things so they will work.

MySQL is in a really good place right now. I commented to more than one person that it is impressive the kinds of folks who are driving their business/application with MySQL and came to talk about it. These include (in no order) YouTube, digg, flickr, Yahoo!, Wikipedia, Google, NASA, US Navy, SugarCRM, TicketMaster, and more. It is hard to beat that list when it comes to proof that a technology is viable.

Here's to another good year of pushing the LAMP stack and open source to wider use and acceptance.
