Fosdem’s organization relocated the MySQL & Friends Devroom from H.1308 to H.1309 (Van Rijn).
MySQL will also have a stand in the H building. Don’t hesitate to visit it (I’ve heard there will be some Sakila Dolphins !)
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 !

Hi all MySQL & Friends fans,
I’ve the pleasure to announce you that the CfP for MySQL & Friends Devroom for Fosdem 2017 is now open.
FOSDEM 2017 edition will be held February 4 and 5 in Brussels like every year since 2000.
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 6th (St Nicolas)!
The submission can be done using https://fosdem.org/submit.
If you don’t have an account yet, you must create one entering your personal details like email that we will use to contact you.
Then, after login, you can create an Event and don’t forget to select “MySQL and Friends devroom” or your submission will be lost maybe for ever.
The duration for the talks are only 20 minutes ! (don’t forget to select it)
And finally don’t forget to add an abstract:
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.
Good news ! The MySQL & Friends Devroom has been accepted for Fosdem’s 2017 edition !
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 !
After the pictures (see the galleries on top ^), the videos of the MySQL & Friends Devroom are available !
You can find them on http://video.fosdem.org/2016/h1308/
Enjoy them !
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.
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!
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:
Once again, we want to thank our generous sponsors, whose help makes this affordable at such a great price.
