We are excited to announce the schedule for the MySQL & Friends devroom at FOSDEM 2023. This year’s devroom will feature a diverse lineup of talks and presentations focused on MySQL.
The program is still in draft form as we await confirmation of accepted speakers.
We encourage you to mark your calendars and join us for what promises to be an engaging and informative event.
In addition, don’t miss the chance to extend your stay in Belgium and participate to the preFOSDEM MySQL Days that will take place on 2nd and 3rd February 2023. Registration here.

We tried to have a wide range of popular topics within the limits of available slots and not forgetting the spirit of FOSDEM which is the right place to promote the development and the hacking mindset.
As you know the CfP for the devroom has been open and you may have noticed that we have only half a day that we also need to share.
Therefore, we will have only 4 sessions and they should look like this:
We didn’t decide yet which of the two colors will be for which project.
Due to the very low number of sessions, we will not attempt to compose a selection committee.
Managing a committee to find the candidates, collect their decisions, communicate and especially ask for votes (and yes often these are very busy people) is a time consuming process.
For the committee, reviewing the proposed sessions is a lengthy procedure and agreeing on 16 sessions is already very complicated so only for 4…
However, you may have also noticed that there will be two pre-FOSDEM MySQL days. We will check the proposed FOSDEM MySQL Devroom session to see if there is any content that could be presented at these pre-FOSDEM MySQL days. I will then contact the speakers and invite them.
Don’t forget to submit inspiring sessions, we look forward to reading them !
FOSDEM is back in town, folks, and as usual, there will there be a MySQL and Friends Devroom. At this point, we can’t really remember what came first, was it the annual dinner or the devroom? Our memories of the past few years are particularly hazy on that… Can’t imagine why.
Following a great tradition of dining together in style with members from all over the community, we have rented a by now familiar private space at ICAB, more detailed directions below.
A couple of things changed compared to the last couple of years. The community dinner will take place on Friday night 2 February, following the Pre FOSDEM MySQL Day, both in the same location.
The listed ticket price includes a selection of Belgian Speciality Beers and food, which will be typical Belgian style (no ‘Italian’ Pizza!)
If you have any dietary requirements (vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free,…) please let us know ahead of time when buying the ticket as we need to inform the caterer who will make the necessary accommodations for you.
We’re looking forward to meeting you all again at Fosdem and the Community Dinner. See you then!
The venue itself is located very close to the VUB. A map is displayed below to help you plan your route.
The total distance from the heart of Brussels, Grand Place, is about 20 minutes by public transport, along the route of metro line 5 (closest stop: Petillon). Be sure to use Google/Apple/Your Preferred Maps to determine the best way to get there, though as both tram and bus lines are also an option.
