TWITTER HASH TAG #MARIADBCONF  Please re-tweet and help us spread the word! 

This pic below is from last year. Sadly Colin Charles will not be speaking at this event this year.

We are  happy to announce that the MariaDB Foundation is organising a MariaDB & MySQL community event in Santa Clara on Thursday the 3rd of April. The venue is the Hilton Santa Clara hotel, a short walk from the Percona Live 2014 event.

The community event is hosted by the MariaDB Foundation with support from AccelerationDB. This is a free community event to complement the Percona Live event. The community event will be a full day focusing on many things that are not presented at Percona Live.

If you are coming to the community event, why not also go to the expo hall ($75) in the convention center as well and support all the vendors there.

We were partly inspired to do this by Baron Schwartz blog post announcing the Percona Performance conference in 2009. We believe that there should be more free conferences about MariaDB and MySQL that will allow anyone to participate. Personally I would also like to see more conferences where the speakers are drawn from all the people that create and continue to innovate in the technology, rather than conferences where a majority of the speakers come from a single company.

The themes for this community event are MariaDB 10.0 GA, High availability and Performance.

In the next MariaDB & MySQL community event we plan to also host a MariaDB and MySQL bootcamp. We where not able to do it this year because of lack of funding and time (if anyone would like to help us do it this time, please contact me!).

We already have a lot of proposed talks from MariaDB developers, Galera developers and some other active community members.
Topics include:

MariaDB 10.0 GA


- The new featuresSpider, storage engine with built in sharding.

- Connect, storage engine that allows you to talk with the world (Oracle, PostgreSQL, files etc...)

- Galera overview and case studies

- Show case how to insert continuously 1M rows/seconds while doing concurrent reads with MariaDB and ScaleDB

- How we optimized MariaDB; True case studies from the programmers vaultMySQL

- MHA and Continuent Tungsten shootout 2.0

- MariaDB multi source replication capability

- Scaling MySQL (case study)

- Using ROLES to get more security.

We are still looking for more speakers from different companies to make this the best free and community driven MariaDB and MYSQL event in 2014! If you want to talk at the community event, please send an email to 'foundation 'at' mariadb (dot) org'.

We have also set up a community dinner that  will happen on the same Thursday at the Taste restaurant, a very cool place right around the corner from Birks and Pedros. As the event is free, you will need to pay for the food but we hope to get some further sponsorships for some free drinks (in addition to the inevitable black vodka).

You can register to attend the conference and/or dinner here.

You can use the 'foundation 'at' mariadb (dot) org' email address if you want to sponsor the community event. As MariaDB foundation is a non profit organisation, all sponsorships will go to pay for the event venue, hotel and travel for speakers (who could not otherwise afford to attend); in the event there's anything left over the Foundation will use it for further community activities.

Sam and Monty (Both Finnish) hope to see you at this amazing event!
