If you couldn’t attend the MariaDB & MySQL Community Event in April 2014, held at the Hilton Santa Clara, fret not as there are slides and videos uploaded for you to watch at your leisure. There is likely to be at least one more community event later this year, so watch the space.

Currently on the page, you’ll find most of the talks with slides and the videos are professionally done – with slide overlays. The audio could be better on some, but for an event that was pulled together by Monty in less than 3 weeks, it’s not too shabby. You can learn What’s new in MariaDB 10, a little more about the SPIDER storage engine, more about the MariaDB optimizer (I found this to be very insightful), ScaleDB, Vitess & YouTube, Big data with NEO, InfiniDB, mysqlv8udfs, and MariaDB with Fusion-io.

Some of these products will make its way into code for MariaDB 10.1 (no promises, but look at the above to see what might be popped in). All that’s missing now are transcripts!

Do you like the videos? Do you think more events should have recordings available? Let us know in the comments below.

Percona Live London 2013 is almost here: November 11-12 2013. Team MariaDB & SkySQL will be present, and here’s an agenda if you’re interested in all things MariaDB:

  1. Monday, 11.11.2013 – 2-5pm – What’s New in MariaDB 10 and MariaDB Tools – a tutorial from Ivan Zoratti. This is a hands-on lab, complete with virtual machines provided by Ivan. You’ll also get to see MariaDB Manager from the abstract.
  2. Tuesday 12.11.2013 – 9.45-10.00am – What’s New in MariaDB 5.5 and what will happen with MariaDB 10.0 – a keynote from Michael “Monty” Widenius of the MariaDB Foundation. 
  3. Tuesday 12.11.2013 – 2.50-3.40pm – MariaDB 10 Feature Overview – a session from Colin Charles on features available inside of MariaDB 10.

Don’t forget that on Monday 11.11.2013 from 4-7pm, there are also free drinks for all attendees of Percona Live London at a bar about a 2-minute walk away. Find out more about MariaDB/SkySQL drinks.

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.
