Oracle Chicago—Deerfield, Illinois

We’re delighted to invite you to the MySQL HeatWave on OCI hands-on workshop on Thursday, March 23, 2023, at the Oracle Chicago—Deerfield campus (first-floor conference room 1105 Sherwood).

In the workshop, we’ll give an introduction to MySQL Database on OCI, walk you through how to load sample data into MySQL Standalone and run queries, and show you the latest techniques in MySQL HeatWave for analytics and machine learning (ML).

At the end of the workshop, we’ll provide a tour of Oracle Industry Lab, an environment to develop new ideas and create solutions leveraging technology from Oracle and more than 30 industry partners.

You’ll receive a free OCI trial account with $500 in credits to use for 30 days. Breakfast and lunch will be provided. This will be a hands-on activity, full of learning from the MySQL team, meeting with peers, and mingling with other dolphins.

We’re looking forward to seeing you there!
