"2000-NuSphere, provider of NuSphere MySQL, the leading packaged software product for the open source database marketplace, announced today that it will host Polycon's MySQL open source database training seminar from November 13-17 at the NuSphere corporate office in Bedford, Mass. This is the first official MySQL training session to be held in North America."

"The Polycon Official MySQL Training Program was developed jointly between Polycon AB and Michael "Monty" Widenius, chief technology officer of MySQL AB of Sweden and other MySQL Core Team members. The program is designed to build a full-fledged set of MySQL courses and seminars, on par with courses that exist for commercial databases, such as Oracle, MS SQL Server, Sybase or DB2."

"This MySQL training session is a great opportunity for developers in North America to advance their MySQL skills and discuss new techniques with key members of the open source database community," said D. Britton Johnston, chief technology officer at NuSphere. "NuSphere is honored to bring the developers from Polycon to the United States for this inaugural training session. We hope it's the first of many."
