Tag Archives: Sea-lion
Several members of the MariaDB Foundation team were at CloudFest a couple of weeks ago and just before that I was part of the CloudFest Hackathon. In particular I was leading a team for a project implementing MariaDB health checks in WordPress. But, this project is not what I’m talking about today. Today’s story involved a conversation shortly after the event.
Today I want to talk about another Hackathon project called Wapuugotchi and discussions that happened after the Hackathon. The Wapuu is the mascot for WordPress and the amazing team for the Wapuugotchi project made a Wapuu for every organisation represented at the Hackathon.
You might have heard the story of how we picked a sea-lion as our logo. Now that this lovely beast has been with us for a while, we think it’s high time to give it a name and of course we turn to our wonderful community for suggestions.
The rules are simple: complete this form, telling us what you think we should name the sea lion and why. Later, Maria Widenius will pick her favorite from the submissions, and the winner will get a collection of MariaDB t-shirts and other swag, an artwork by Maria, and of course eternal fame!
