Last weekend I got to present to the MySQL Developers Room at FOSDEM in Brussels.
The subject of my presentation was NoSQL and SQL the best of both worlds…
Heads up that Friday (6th December) is your last chance to submit a 30 minute session proposal for next year’s MySQL & Friends Devroom at FOSDEM. I presented last year and I was really impressed by the number of attendees, the organisation and the positive reception (I’ll be there again next year – hopefully presenting). If you’ve got a MySQL-related topic that you’d like to present to an enthusiastic open-source community then this is a agreat opportunity.
Submit your proposal(s) for a 30 minute session here.
FOSDEM 2014 is free event running in Brussels over the weekend of 1st & 2nd February, with the MySQL content aimed for the Saturday. This is a huge event (5,000+) and has a great, informal, developer-focused atmosphere – even if you don’t want to present, it’s worth attending if you can.
The Free and Open source Software Developers’ European Meeting (FOSDEM) is a two-day event organized by volunteers to promote the widespread use of Free and Open Source software.
I attended for the first time over the weekend and was really impressed by the number of people there, the energy and the quality of the content. The event really lives up to it’s name and is very developer-focused.
In the end, I got the opportunity to make 2 presentations. The first is a general introduction to MySQL Cluster….
The second illustrates how you can realise the benefits promised by NoSQL data stores wihtout losing the consistency and flexibility of relational databases…
