Good news: At Percona Live Wed-Thu 12-13 May 2021, there will be a separate track for MariaDB. It’s called the MariaDB Community Room. Matt Yonkovit and Bronwyn Campbell of Percona tell us they have some changes in store for this year’s online-only edition, one of them being a more clear distinction of tracks. This is good news for the users of MariaDB Server.
There will be some MariaDB related presentations in the general track, on topics of general interest to all audiences.

FOSDEM 2021 was amazing. MariaDB had a developer room and Foundation members contributed talks to a number of other developer rooms. We were listening for ways in which MariaDB server could be improved during all these talks, regardless of which room our MariaDB Foundation staff were in.
MariaDB server developers present provided information related to recently fixed/improved items and things that are planned to be fixed.
Our interactions with the community of users present, many of which we know, gave us an opportunity to have a dialog about some of the parts of MariaDB that they would like improved.

You can take FOSDEM out of Brussels, but you cannot take the Brussels out of FOSDEM. Meeting virtually is different, but FOSDEM once again succeeded in invigorating spirits and building bonds between developers.
Picture on top: myself “at FOSDEM” 2021. Missing the crowds, but still getting interaction!
The MariaDB presenters, the MariaDB Devroom organising committee and the team at MariaDB Foundation put considerable effort into all MariaDB talks at FOSDEM. The 24 MariaDB related talks are now all available on-line as a YouTube playlist on https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLaJ5BwLUdDZ-JQME9xbO2UD3uvBXnizM1
