Subject:MySQL University session on June 25: MySQL Code Contributions
View as plain text  
MySQL Code Contributions

This Thursday (June 25th, 13:00 UTC), Lenz Grimmer will explain how to
contribute code to MySQL, in a MySQL University session titled MySQL
Code Contributions. Lenz is a member of the MySQL Community Team. His
session will give an overview about how code contributions to MySQL
should be handled and performed. It will cover the ideal workflow,
requirements and available infrastructure and toolchain that potential
contributors should be aware of.

For MySQL University sessions, point your browser to this page:

You need a browser with a working Flash plugin. You may register for a
Dimdim account, but you don't have to. (Dimdim is the conferencing
system we're using for MySQL University sessions. It provides integrated
voice streaming, chat, whiteboard, session recording, and more.)

MySQL University is a free educational online program for
engineers/developers. MySQL University sessions are open to anyone, not
just Sun employees. Sessions are recorded (slides and audio), so if you
can't attend the live session you can look at the recording anytime
after the session.

Here's the schedule for the upcoming weeks:

# July 2: Starring Sakila - a data warehouse mini-tutorial (Roland Bouman)
# July 9 through September 3: Semester break
# September 10: Customizing MySQL Enterprise Monitor (Mark Leith)
# September 17: Architecture of MySQL Backup (Lars Thalmann)
# September 24: Concurrency Control: How It Really Works (Heikki Tuuri)
# October 1: InnoDB Internals: InnoDB File Formats and Source Code
Structure (Calvin Sun)
# October 8: Building MySQL Releases on Unix (Jörg Brühe)

The schedule is not engraved in stone at this point. Please visit for the
up-to-date list. On that page, you can also find the starting time for
many time zones.
