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.

This is the blog of the MariaDB Foundation in particular and the MariaDB project in general. It is used to announce new MariaDB versions, for posts from MariaDB developers about new features, and for news from or about the MariaDB Foundation itself, among other things. For many this is the MariaDB blog, and on behalf of the MariaDB Foundation, welcome! We’re glad you’re here. Thanks for stopping by!

What you may not know is that there’s another MariaDB blog over at https://mariadb.com/blog run by the fine folks at SkySQL (full disclosure: I work for SkySQL, but my posts here are on behalf of the MariaDB project and the Foundation). This other MariaDB blog contains posts about SkySQL’s commercial MariaDB offerings (naturally) but also a lot of other excellent MariaDB-related content.

For example, the most recent post, from 30 Apr is about installing MariaDB 10.0.10 on Mac OS X with Homebrew. The MariaDB project doesn’t provide downloads of official binaries for MacOS X, so if you’ve ever wanted to get MariaDB running on your iMac, MacBook, or Mac Pro, go check it out!

Other recent posts include one about MariaDB and Heartbleed, another on using SQL and NoSQL in MariaDB 10, and a MariaDB 10 vs MySQL 5.6 feature comparison.

So check out the other MariaDB blog and add the rss feed to your reader!
