Joshua Drake was kind enough to let me forward this to you -- we'd
like to make sure people know about the event.  I've gotten some
feedback from folks that they didn't realize it was in October, not
November, this year.

In 2 weeks, the free OpenSQL Camp conference Boston edition will
occur, Oct 16-17 (with an informal social event on Friday 10/15 in the
evening) at the MIT Stata Center near the Kendall T stop on the Red
Line.  This is an awesome event that we are sponsoring this year, so
we want to make sure you hear about it.

 OpenSQL Camp is a conference of, by, and for the open-source database
community of users and developers. It is a place where people come to
learn, to participate and to contribute. In other words, it's a great
conference, and if you attend, it will be better.

OpenSQL Camp is open to all – sessions have included PostgreSQL,
SQLite, MySQL (and storage engines and forks thereof), Drizzle (and
tools such as Google Proto Buffers), DBIx::Cache, Gearman, cloud
computing, Unix tips, query optimization, Apache Derby, BlackRay,
Continuent Tungsten, DB Clustering, Firebird, CouchDB, MongoDB,
Cassandra, Firewater, how to version schemas, Waffle Grid / Storm
Cloud, databases on SSDs, and even "soft" topics like the Open
Database Alliance.

We have some great representation from all the major open source
players -- MySQL, Postgres, MongoDB, Cassandra, and have
representatives from other players such as Tokutek, VoltDB, SlackDB
and more.

The conference is in the style of BarCamp, where sessions for the
weekend are chosen by the attendees on Saturday morning.
