The MariaDB Foundation is pleased to announce the 2023 MariaDB Developers Unconference, taking place on 3-4 October, as well as the 2023 MariaDB Server Fest, taking place 5 Oct. Both events will be held in Helsinki and online, and are free of charge to attend.
The event will again be a traditional unconference, with lots of opportunities for discussions and collaboration around any topic of interest to MariaDB Server developers. 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. …
The MariaDB Foundation will be hosting a Server Fest on Thursday 17 November 2022. This time it’ll be a hybrid event, harnessing the energy that comes from many of the participants being present in person.
To encourage interaction, the event will be streamed live, but will not immediately be made available online, so don’t miss out on this opportunity to interact with the speakers and MariaDB members in person!
The keynote speaker will be Wikimedia Foundation’s Manuel Arostegui. The schedule and further details will be announced soon.
We start at 14:00 Paris time (CET) – 8:00am New York, 20:00 Beijing.
Seppo Jaakola is going to present the topic “MariaDB Galera Cluster Security” at the Security MariaDB Server Fest (Wed 6 April 2022).
I’m currently watching his talk. Let me share with you some details. Seppo is not talking about native MariaDB security features that are by default supported by Galera, but due to the distributed cluster topology additional security related measures are needed. He talks about cluster topology, cluster communication security, Galera enhancement Data at REST encryption and the new 10.9 feature Node screening by IP Allowlist.
Do you have questions to ask Seppo?
Things happen, schedules change. I don’t want to bother you with details, so you’ll have to take my word for it: Events related to Russia invading Ukraine have caused us to delay our Security themed MariaDB Server Fest with a week, from Wed 30 March to Wed 6 April 2022.
This is probably the mildest of the consequences of the ongoing war. Nonetheless, we apologise for the inconvenience.
The Call for Papers for MariaDB Server Fest 2021 is open until the end of Sunday 22 August 2021. We’d like you to put in a submission.
MariaDB Server 10.6 hit Stable recently and the Server Engineering Team is quite proud of some of the innovation there. During the MariaDB Server Fest and we’ll be listening to some those.
The innovation that we’d like to hear from is yours. Users of MariaDB everywhere are applying innovation in the way they use MariaDB all the time. Your innovation may include new technologies integrated with MariaDB, new topographies, or new architectures, and presenting on how you have used these to solve the real problems would be ideal for our Server Fest.
Update: MariaDB Server Fest 2021 will be held on the 5th and 6th of October 2021. You can find more information in this blog post.
