Data Con LA 2020 and New Introductory Video Series on MySQL

 Data Con LA starts October 23rd and I will be speaking on Sunday and I will be speaking on Sunday the 25th on MySQL's NoSQL JSON Store in a talk titled MySQL Without the SQL -- Oh My!

The talk is pre-recorded but I will be live for the question and answer segment. So this is your chance to ask me your question.

Dave's MySQL Basics is a new video based series I am starting to teach the basics of MySQL.  I have been talking with book publishers, hiring managers, DBAs of all levels, and many others.  They have all said they would like to see a simple, modular way to learn MySQL.  So rather than take a few years to produce a book, I am creating a series of videos that will be short (the goal is five minutes or less), not too pedantic (still have to teach the very low level basics), and that can be updated quickly when/if the material changes.  The videos will be on Youtube and course materials I create will be at, where you can also find the video links.
