This just in from Monty's blog:

"We are  happy to announce that the MariaDB Foundation is organizing  a MariaDB & MySQL community event in Santa Clara on Thursday the 3rd of April. The venue is the Hilton Santa Clara hotel, right next to the PerconaLive 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.

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:

9:00 AM Welcome to the MariaDB & MySQL community event Michael 'Monty' Widenius

9:10 AM What's is new in MariaDB 10.0 Michael 'Monty' Widenius Includes features comparison with MySQL 5.5 and 5.6

9:55 AM  MariaDB 10.0 optimizer Sergey Petrunia and Sergei Golubchik, MariaDB developers

10:45 AM MariaDB and ScaleDB showcase Moshe Shadmon, ScaleDB
Show case of how to insert continuously 1M rows/seconds while doing concurrent reads with MariaDB and ScaleDB

11:30 AM MySql at Tumblr Bob Patterson Jr, tumblr.
Tumblr manages more than 250+ database servers with 55+ TB of data. We accomplish this through our architecture, tools and process. During this talk I will discuss how the databases at Tumblr are laid out and go into detail about what tables and data lives on each type of machine. Also I will go through how we back our dashboard(news feed) in our application and database layer. Finally I will cover how we manage and deploy our database configuration so our application knows where to retrieve and write data. I will discuss briefly our memcached stats and how we use memcached with over 3 million gets per second and 100 thousands sets per second to support our databases.

1:00 PM MySQL MHA and Continuent Tungsten shootout 2.0
Alex Alexander, SpringbokSQL

1:45 PM Vitess, CAP, and Hitting the sweet spot @YouTube
Sugu Sougoumarane, Google

2:45 PM Big data with NEO (distributed database powered by MariaDB) and Scikit-learn Jean-Paul Smets, Nexedi

3:30 PM InfiniDB overview
Jim Tommaney, InfiniDB Learn about InfiniDB to deliver real time reporting and analytics at scale. InfiniDB is an open source columnar analytics engine available via GPL v2 with no restrictions on syntax, scale, or performance. The InfiniDB custom distribution of work and pure columnar storage deliver is well-suited for specific workloads (analytics, reporting) but does not replace MySQL for transactional and other workloads

4:15 PM  mysqlv8udfs - Running JavaScript inside MySQL
Roland Bouman MySQLv8Udfs provides a number of MySQL UDFs that integrate Google's v8 JavaScript engine into MySQL. With mysqlv8udfs you can run JavaScript directly in the database. This allows developers to do all kinds of useful things that are hard or inconvenient to achieve with either SQL, stored routines or UDFs. Examples include JSON document generation and manipulation, powerful regular expression support, and data transformation and transport across MySQL instances. For particular types of tasks, especially CPU-intensive ones, mysqlv8udfs also provides substantial performance benefits as compared to stored routines, and even plain SQL expressions. MySQLv8UDFs is free and open source. Code is available here:

5:00 PM Speeding up MariaDB on Fusion-IO
Joy Das and Thorben Mathiasen, Fusion-IO
This talk will share compression improvements in MariaDB optimized for flash using native interfaces. Get the capacity benefits of compression, without incurring the performance overhead and complexity of packing and re-packing the compressed blocks into one-size-fits-all blocks. Instead, rely on underlying thin provisioning to allocate only what is used and provide efficient garbage collection of unused blocks. We will present some alternatives to address challenges presented and preset performance results from TPC-C and LinkBench.

COMMUNITY DINNER at Taste Restaurant!  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  group 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.
