What's new with MySQL and MariaDB?

Sheeri K Cabral


What's new with MySQL and MariaDB?

Note: WE ARE MEETING AT BLOOMBERG!! We'll need names, and you will need IDs.

Correction: This meeting is at 6:30pm NOT 6:00pm as earlier stated.

Note: We will be closing RSVP early to accommodate building security requirements.

Sheeri Cabral, DBA at Mozilla, talks about what's coming for the MySQL ecosystem. Specifically, the new features on the MySQL 5.7 roadmap as well as the new capabilities that MariaDB 10 allows.  (MariaDB 10 is expected to ship on April 2nd).


Join us afterwards for drinks at a nearby watering hole, where we'll continue the discussion.

    I'm assuming Sheeri will be presenting the same content at the Boston MySQL meetup group, so I'll wait and catch her there. Sheeri - please let me know if that's not true.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
