The Southern California branch of the MySQL Campus Tour is almost over.
At the USC, attendance was very good, and even better was the enthusiasm and the participation we met. The meeting didn't start well. Our hotel is 11 miles away from the USC campus, and we figured out that heading to the campus 1 hour before the planned time ought to be enough. After 65 minutes, we had done exactly 7 miles, in one of the worst traffic jams that I have ever seen, but the locals tell me that it's pretty standard stuff down here. Anyway, we started 20 minutes later than expected, and we were pleasantly surprised that nobody had left, and a faithful audience had been waiting for us patiently.
I would like to thank the campus ambassadors Lynn Janh and Raed Shomali for the excellent organization and their patience with our forced delay.
Tomorrow we will talk at the L.A. MySQL meetup and then we will move North, to the MySQL Conference.
