2019 Developers Unconference, Shanghai, Nov 2019

(A Chinese version of this post is available here).

The MariaDB Foundation is pleased to announce the 2019 MariaDB Developers Unconference in Shanghai. This will be our second Unconference in China, after the 2017 Developers Unconference in Shenzhen, and will take place from Tuesday 19 November to Thursday 21 November 2019.

Microsoft Shanghai are kindly hosting the event. If you want to attend, please sign up on the event page at Meetup.com. We recommend you stay in a hotel near the venue.

All events are free of charge to attend.

The event will be the traditional unconference, with lots of opportunities for discussions and collaboration around any topic. Anyone interested in contributing (code or otherwise) 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.

A draft schedule is available here – please feel free to submit session ideas.

There will be in depth presentations and discussions on various topics related to MariaDB open source development. 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 difficult problems or plan future features.

If you require a letter of invitation for a visa application, see see the visa applications page for China from Shenzhen.

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.
