Looking for MySQL 5.7 or 8.0 guinea pigs

Sea Lion with School of Fish

Dear users of MySQL 5.7 (or 8.0)!

Are you interested in getting help migrating to MariaDB 10.6 or 10.11, the latest long-term support releases? Are you coming to Brussels for FOSDEM in February? Do you have an open attitude, not minding to show a bit of dirty laundry in front of other users?

Then you may be a perfect candidate for our MariaDB Migration Workshop at our pre-FOSDEM event on Friday 2 Feb 2024. The workshop will be led by none other than the father of both MySQL Server and MariaDB Server, namely Michael “Monty” Widenius.

However, we would like to come prepared. This means that we would like to get to know you a bit beforehand, asking some questions and thinking about exactly what dirty laundry you are willing to show. We don’t want to embarrass anyone.

Interested? Email foundation@mariadb.org!
