OK, it’s official! Google has offered to host the first MySQL camp at its Mountain View headquarters, on November 10th through 12th. Many thanks go out to Googlers Leslie Hawthorn and Mikal Still, who made it happen. Google will be providing food for the event as well, but we still encourage creative contributions from other sponsors.
Some ideas for possible sponsors:
- Sponsor one or more developers to get to and from the unconference. Since the event is on the west coast, it is difficult for some developers to get to the conference, especially from the east coast and other countries. Consider offering travel expenses for interested and motivated parties
- Provide transportation to and from nearby airports via a shuttle service
- Books, t-shirts, etc for participants
Again, many thanks to Google for such a generous offer. Participants are most appreciative!
