Supporting continuity and open collaboration

2018 MariaDB Developers Unconference

The first MariaDB Developers Unconference of 2018 will be our second meetup in New York City, and will be taking place on Saturday 24 and Sunday 25 February.

The event is free to attend and you can join for the whole time, or as little time as you wish.

The schedule of this unconference is being drafted in a public spreadsheet. Please add suggestions for sessions you would like to present or lead on this spreadsheet.

The venue is in Manhattan (Google Maps) so that it’s easily accessible for those attending M|18. If you want to attend, please sign up on the event page at Meetup.com.

Open for all current and future contributors

Anyone interested in contributing to the MariaDB open source project is welcome to join. You don’t need to be a core developer to attend. This is an open community and we welcome new contributors who are willing to learn and work in the open source way.

There will also be a new developers tutorial, so if you are interested in learning more about contributing code to MariaDB, this is the time to attend.

This event is intended for current and future MariaDB developers specifically. If you are a developer in general who uses MariaDB in your software, you should primarily attend the M|18 MariaDB User Conference instead.

The event is an unconference, with lots of opportunities for discussions and collaboration around any topic. Performance, new features, connectors, packaging, documentation? You can help decide what. Many of the core MariaDB developers will be present and available for discussions.

The goal for the event is to provide face time among the developers, both new and old, so that they can crack hard problems or plan future features. If you want to contribute to MariaDB and drive certain features, a good way to start your participation in the project is by attending the Developers Unconference.

If you have questions about the event or about contributing to MariaDB in general, feel free to start a discussion on the MariaDB developers mailing list or the MariaDB discuss mailing list.

Attend M|18 as well

M|18, the MariaDB User Conference, will be taking place immediately after, so you will be able to easily attend both events. This is the second MariaDB user conference, and will be held on Feb 26-27, 2019 at the Conrad Hotel in Lower Manhattan, New York City. Register for M|18 here.
