Just wanted to post a quick update that our Birds-of-a-Feather session proposal for MySQL Conference got approved too, so come join us on Tuesday, April 13th, 7:00 PM PST if you are around Santa Clara Convention Center. We’ll be discussing all things full-text search, including Sphinx, of course, but not really limited to it. Evening BOF sessions were free to attend previous years, so consider it even if you aren’t attending the conference itself.
Now if you are, I couldn’t help myself but plug a reminder of a Sphinx: full-text search in 2010 talk the next evening, that is, Wednesday, April 14th, 5:15 PM PST. Note that the talk will be an overview of newly added features rather than a bird-view of the entire system. So if you haven’t used Sphinx before, I suggest fetching a copy and going through some tutorial before the talk. Even though we aren’t pushing our install as “the famous 5-minute” one, it still doesn’t take more than that. (So, too bad this punch line is taken.)
