We are happy to release the schedule (https://mariadb.org/fest2023-schedule/) of our upcoming meeting week Tue-Thu 3-5 October 2023.
The week comes with meetings in four flavours:
- The MariaDB Server Fest presentations, directed at users of MariaDB Server. This is on Thursday 5 October 2023.
- The MariaDB Unconference presentations, directed at core developers of MariaDB Server. This is on Wednesday 4 October 2023.
- The MariaDB Unconference work sessions, interactions getting work done between MariaDB Foundation staff and core members of the ecosystem (including but not limited to MariaDB plc employees).
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. …
In our quest to promote development of MariaDB Server, what we have come to call Unconferences form a key part. These developer meetings have traditionally been organised twice a year, and 2019 is no exception. After the North American Unconference in New York in February, Asia Pacific was in turn with Shanghai in November. And, no, we have not forgotten Europe; expect an EMEA Unconference next year.
Microsoft were our hosts, at their fabulous campus in the peaceful outskirts of Shanghai. “Where are all the Chinese?” was a common foreigner reaction;
Security is one of the hottest topics in Computer Software today, everybody handles highly valuable data. From private personal data, medical records for clinics to customers credit card information for online bussinesses, malicious data breaches are always part of the worst case scenario.
Robert Bindar (email@example.com) is going to present a session at the 2019 MariaDB Unconference, New York about two new security features in the MariaDB Server: User Account Locking and Password Expiration.
