okcmysql.org is designed as an open forum through which users of the MySQL (and related) database can collaborate to grow the local ecosystem through discussion, meet-ups, and local conferences. – Mike Benshoof (founder)
This site was launched as a medium to connect users of MySQL in the Oklahoma City metro. With the growing tech industry in the area, having a group to discuss trends and the general environment is important to create a thriving ecosystem.
While topics are geared towards MySQL, discussion on a wide variety of database technologies is encouraged. Often times, MySQL can act as complete data storage solution. However, it can also act merely as a complement to other technologies and those interactions are key in designing a scalable system.
