14.45 - 15.15 MySQL and Fedora: A Developer's Overview ColinCharles The developer's overview covers whats new and cool in MySQL 5, and what one can expect in MySQL 5.1, from a full-featured database suite. MySQL AB wants to work closely with the Linux distribution community, and that means active participation in the Fedora Project. Previously we've had our differences with regards to licensing, and a mishmash of 3.23 libraries and a 4.x server - we shall cover that in a more in-depth session. A lot of external developers and coders wonder how their code can get into MySQL's tree, or get hacking on MySQL - this is easy! Learn more about the storage engines shipped, so you may find something to hack on. There will also possibly be a quick cluster demo, if time (and hardware) permits
