At OSCON, if you’re into the MySQL world, the day to be paying attention to BoFs is clearly Wednesday, 24 July 2013. We have a MariaDB BoF at D136 at 8pm-9pm, but before that you might be at the MySQL BoF in the same room, or you might be in Peter Zaitsev’s BoF on MySQL, NoSQL, Big Data – Better Together in E141. So figure out how to split yourself at 7-8pm, and once you’re done, come from 8-9pm at D136 on Wednesday and join the MariaDB crew at OSCON!

We’ll also be at the SkySQL booth, so come by Booth 815 and get some free t-shirts, stickers, or support the MariaDB community by being a foundation donor.

Team MariaDB will be at the Percona Live MySQL Conference & Expo 2013, held in Santa Clara from April 22-25 2013. We will also be at the SkySQL Solutions Day held on April 26 2013 at the same venue, the Hyatt Santa Clara. We have talks, a booth in the DotOrg Pavilion, have a BoF and we’re participating in the passport program.

  1. Roadshow in Amsterdam, the Netherlands – 21 March 2013
  2. Roadshow in Paris, France – 27 March 2013

If you’re at the Percona Live MySQL Conference & Expo Santa Clara (many of us from Team MariaDB are speaking), you should consider spending the extra day there as on Friday April 26 2013, there exists the SkySQL & MariaDB Global Roadshow 2013. It’s also free to attend, so even if you can’t attend all week, consider just coming on Friday.
