What about an hackathon to fix several issues in Innotop during this Fosdem 2016 edition ?
As the MySQL & Friends Devroom is on Saturday, Sunday would be the perfect day to find a nice place in the bar and work on resolving the open issues in Innotop to support MariaDB 10.1, MySQL 5.7…
If you are interested just send me a tweet (@lefred) and we can arrange this meeting.
The Call for Papers is over !
Thank you to all of you who have submitted a talk for the Fosdem 2016 MySQL & Friends devroom !
We received 40 talks that will be sent to the committee for review. Then as soon as the talks we be rated, we will contact all the submitters to let them know if their talk(s) was approved or not.
Be patient ! ;-)
Thank you again, this will be an awesome event !
FOSDEM 2016 edition will be held January 30 and 31 in Brussels like every year since 2000.
The MySQL & Friends Devroom is back on Saturday from 9.00AM.
What is FOSDEM? It stands for the “Free and Open Source Software Developers’ European Meeting.” It’s a free event that offers open-source communities a place to meet, share ideas and collaborate.
CfP is open until December 1st!
Don’t forget to submit your sessions (submit here, don’t forget to select MySQL track) before December and see you soon in Brussels to discover amazing stuff related to MySQL and have some beers with Friends!
This year we propose two different types of talks :
- 20 min session (15 slots)
- 40 min session (3 slots)
Don’t forget the Abstract in the description (second tab).
Good news !
FOSDEM accepted our devroom for the next edition.
The MySQL devroom will take place on Saturday, January 30th 2016.
Stay tuned for the Call For Paper !!
Hi all MySQL afficionados !
I just wanted to keep you informed that Fosdem’s organization opened the proposals for Devrooms.
As every year now, we submitted our participation. As soon as our devroom will be approved, the Call For Papers will be published.
Stay tuned for more information.
Dear MySQL Friends,
Unfortunately, this year we won’t have the pleasure to attend Raghu’s show. Indeed, he couldn’t apply in time for his Visa.
I would like to thank Andrew Morgan to have accepted to present his talk “MySQL & NoSQL – best of both worlds” to replace “ENOMEM: Will databases ever stop asking for more memory” from Raghu.
Respecting the logic, the next talk should have been “Introduction to MySQL Binlog Events” from Neha Kumari, but once again it was too late for Visa appliance.
Logically, Andrew was the next one and he agrred to present his talk even if the notification was very short.
The final schedule is:
Like last year, we’ll be renting a private space to allow for easy socializing. However, in light of this year’s 20th Anniversary of MySQL in May, as well as MariaDB’s 5th Anniversary in February, we want to take things to the next level, and give the night a true community feel. Our new location is available to us until 2AM, and is part of the ICAB buildings, closer to the ULB (more detailed directions on the eventbrite page).
As such, prepare for an evening of food prepared for the Community, by the Community. That’s right, your hosts will be firing up the pizza ovens and serve you all with the best pizzas Belgium has to offer.
The listed ticket price includes all-you-can-eat pizza (or until we run out… go ahead, we dare you), as well as a great selection of Belgian specialty beers and other beverages. We’ll make sure that vegetarians have plenty of options, but anyone intending to join us with special dietary requirements, please let us know ahead of time!
As you stuff yourselves with glorious amounts of pizza, be sure to leave some room for dessert, as there will be a special birthday surprise in celebration of MySQL’s 20th and MariaDB’s 5th anniversaries.
In the interest of transparency: The price we’ve set is based on an assumption of a certain amount of people attending, based on last year’s attendance. If the amount of people ends lower than our target, and we end up having a surplus, any remaining funds will be donated to the Fosdem organization like last year.
The reason we charge money up front is two-fold:
1) We need to be able to give ourselves a rough estimate of the amount of attendees ahead of time, so we can make sure we buy/prepare enough ingredients for everyone to enjoy. Free signups tend to make that number a bit less reliable. We want to make sure there is enough food to go around for everyone attending!
2) Stress-free financials on the night of the dinner! We all know the effects of Belgian Beer on arithmetic skills. Flash your ticket, get your food.
We’re looking forward to meeting you all again at Fosdem and the Community Dinner. See you then!
We also want to say a big thank you to the sponsors of that main event:
