The mission of the MariaDB Foundation is to ensure continuity and open collaboration in the MariaDB ecosystem. We facilitate the development of the MariaDB Server and the related connectors as listed on our GitHub account. Core to us is to enable and foster collaboration so that contributing is meaningful and produces results for everybody.
Here are some of the things we do to ensure true open source:
- Publish code in real time, not just at release time.
- Discuss and plan on the public mailing lists and on IRC.
- Public bug tracker, transparent progress and priorities.
If you are in Helsinki on Thursday next week March 17th, join us for the MariaDB meetup at Solinor. MariaDB team members will present the latest on MariaDB 10.1, MaxScale and MariaDB’s future roadmap.
On stage Rasmus Johansson VP Engineering, MariaDB Corporation and Johan Wikman & Markus Mäkelä, developers of MaxScale.

One could say that MariaDB originates from Finland’s capital Helsinki. In fact so does MySQL. It was in the Helsinki area that MySQL saw daylight. It was here that Monty Widenius laid the ground for MySQL already in the 80’s, maybe even 1979, when he created UNIREG from which parts were reused when he together with the other 2 founders of MySQL released the first version of MySQL in 1995.
