FOSDEM’17 MySQL & Friends Devroom, the schedule

This year, the MySQL & Friends Devroom will be held on Saturday 4th February 2017.

After having received a lot of submission (the highest amount ever!), with MySQL Community Team, we decided to organize and extra MySQL day that will take place at ICAB Incubator, 4 Rue des Pères Blancs in Brussels (same location as the MySQL Community Dinner). More to come on this day in a future blog post.

So back to the MySQL & Friends Devroom, the Committee high rated the following talks:

For people that doesn’t know it yet, MySQL & Friends Devroom is not the usual conference . Sales and Marketing talks are not welcome. Creativity and hard-code sessions are what we expect. If you have created tools or hacked MySQL, MariaDB or Percona Server, your history interests us and all the attendees as well.

Don’t hesitate to spread the word, we would like to receive even more submission than last year, we have a record to break !

You can find the names of the Committee members that will rate your talks on this page.

MySQL & Friends devroom will be present during Fosdem 2017 !

Good news ! The MySQL & Friends Devroom has been accepted for Fosdem’s 2017 edition !

mysql_and_friendsThis event is a real success story for the MySQL ecosystem, the content, the speakers and the attendees are growing every year.

Fosdem’s organization left out som e long time participants to give other projects a chance as welll to be present at this massive event. Hopefully we were accepted as MySQL is present at Fosdem since the very first editions.

The 2017’s edition will take place 4th & 5th February in Brussels.

I’m currently forming the committee for this new edition and the CfP should open in some days. Stay tuned and prepare your trip to Belgium for the winter !

MySQL & Friends Community Dinner 2016

FOSDEM is once again descending on the ULB in Brussels, and so again will there be a MySQL and Friends Devroom. Tradition calls for a MySQL and Friends Community Dinner, and we certainly aim not to disappoint this year!

fosdem16_mysql_logo

Like last year, we’ll be renting the same private space to allow for easy socializing (at ICAB , more detailed directions below).

As such, prepare for an evening of food, drink and jolly conversation rivaling the great feasts of old. Disclaimer: Apart from jolliness, overindulgence on any account can not be blamed on the organizers of this event.

The listed ticket price includes all-you-can-eat Belgian Delicacies (or until we run out… go ahead, we dare you), as well as a great selection of Specialty Beers and other beverages. We’ll make sure that vegetarians will have options available, but anyone intending to join us with special dietary requirements (vegan, gluten-free, carnivore…), please let us know ahead of time!

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.

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 the caterer prepares enough food 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!

Once again, we want to thank our generous sponsors, whose help makes this affordable at such a great price.
