MariaDB Cloud MiniFest Wed 9 June 2021

A new MariaDB Minifest is here! It will be on Wednesday 9 June 2021 and our main topic is the MariaDB in the Cloud. As always, we have a number of high-profile presenters ready to inform you on all things cloud related inside MariaDB. Our goal: to help you better navigate the skies.

The purpose of MariaDB Foundation, as defined in the Certificate of Incorporation

That’s the setting of our MariaDB Cloud MiniFest being held on Wednesday 9 June.

Through a novel format, MariaDB Server Fests strive to outshine physical conferences on interactivity and discussions. We create more interactions with the presenter, with other experts, and with participants, than at face-to-face conferences.

The special sauce

The special sauce for this MiniFest is:

  1. Our presenters sharing how they used MariaDB to solve cloud related issues.
  2. Exploring the use cases of high profile companies regarding cloud technologies using MariaDB
  3. Live chatting with the presenters in the virtual corridors of the MiniFest

The Cloud MiniFest follows the format of our Dec 2020 MariaDB Server MiniFest on the Release Policy and the Mar 2021 MariaDB Server HA MiniFest.
