OpenSQLCamp Boston 2010 happens 16-17 October 2010, at MIT in Boston (there is an evening social session on Friday the 15th as well). Its organised by MySQL community aficionado Sheeri Cabral, and by looking at the schedule and sponsors, it is going to be one of the most diverse OpenSQLCamp’s by far.
Monty Program is a sponsor, and I (Colin) will be participating on behalf of Monty Program to bring some information about what’s new from the Istanbul company meeting. More of the company certainly wanted to be at the event, but most are going to be spending some quality vacation time in Istanbul, since our all company meeting only ends on the 12th.
If you have not already registered to attend, what’s keeping you? Its free to attend, and Sheeri tells me that there’s some very cool schwag available for grabs.
Open Source Bridge dubs itself as the conference for open source citizens. It happens June 1-4 2010, in beautiful Portland, Oregon. The young event (it celebrates its second birthday this year), seems to already have a great database track.
From Monty Program Ab, we have Monty himself leading a session on The State of MariaDB. So if you want to go meet the creator of MySQL, the founder of MariaDB, or just taste some Salmiakki vodka, you certainly want to be there at Open Source Bridge.
At the recent O’Reilly MySQL Conference & Expo 2010, the nice folk at O’Reilly Media got to speak to Kurt von Finck, Chief Community and Communications Officer for Monty Program Ab, about how we handle releases, why we are a superset of MySQL and more. Watch the 7 minute video, and do give us some feedback here in the comments.
