An impressive array of technical sessions ... It would have been ideal if some of these could also be presented, spread out as webinars, during the year ... ( It would be impossible for the audience at JavaOne to attend more than a couple of these. ) ... Something like the MySQL's Webinar series or MySQL University series would be great ... If you need information, let me know.
