MariaDB Day Brussels 02.02.2020 – Introducing speakers – Vlad Bogolin on ensuring MariaDB Server’s longevity with an open build system for the community.

MariaDB Day is part of FOSDEM Fringe and will be held on Sunday 2 February 2020. Attendance is free, but space is limited, so please RSVP on the Meetup page if you plan to attend.
