FOSDEM’19 MySQL, MariaDB & Friends DEVROOM Call for Papers is now open !

Good news ! The MySQL, MariaDB & Friends Devroom has been accepted for FOSDEM’19 ‘s edition as announced earlier!

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

The first big change for this 2019 edition is that the MariaDB Foundation (Ian) is joining my efforts to build this Devroom. Don’t forget that FOSDEM takes place in Belgium, and our motto is “l’Union fait la Force” [“Unity is Strength”].

FOSDEM 2019’s edition will take place 2nd & 3rd February in Brussels and our MySQL, MariaDB & Friends devroom will run on Saturday 2nd (may change). FOSDEM & MySQL/MariaDB is a love story started 19 years ago !

The committee selecting the content for our devroom is not yet created and if you want to be part of this experience, just send me an email (candidate at mysqlmariadbandfriends dot eu) before Oct 29th.

If you want to join the Committee you have to align with the following conditions:

  • planning to be present at FOSDEM
  • having a link with MySQL & MariaDB Ecosystem
  • have some time to review and rate talks
  • be an ambassador for the event by promoting it

The Call for Paper is now offcialy open and ends November 15th. You can submit now() your proposal using FOSDEM’s submission tool.

Marketing and Sales speeches are not welcome, focus on the engineering, the operations and of course the developers.

Don’t forget to specify the track (MySQL, MariaDB and Friends devroom) and set the duration to 20 mins (short but intense ;-) )!

Thank you, and see you soon in Brussels !

MySQL & Friends Community Dinner 2017 – Looking for sponsors

Hi dear MySQL Community,

I would like to start this post by saying thanks to our sponsors:


Unfortunately, we are missing one sponsor and to not increase the ticket price but at the same time keep the level of quality for food then promised and the same diversity for our world famous Belgian beer patrimony, we are still looking for one or two extra sponsors.

If you are interested, please contact @gryp, @dim0, @tomdecooman or myself and we already thank you in advance.

Don’t forget to register for the Community Dinner on eventbrite !

pre-Fosdem’17 MySQL Day

Oracle’s  MySQL Community Team is organizing a pre-Fosdem MySQL Day on Friday 3rd February 2017.

The event is free (like in beer) for all participants but as seating is limited, registration is required.

Come to meet MySQL engineers and listen to them talking about new MySQL 8.0’s features. Some of Percona’s experienced staff will also deliver some talks on troubleshooting, architecture, …

And finally, Booking.com will also share their user experience with the audience.

What else to start the Fosdem Week-end in the best way ?

Agenda and registration can be found on lefred’s blog !
