This is a nice blog post from Asher Feldman, Site Architect, Wikipedia on how Wikipedia Adopts MariaDB. If you’re using English or German Wikipedia, or using Wikidata, you’re currently being served by MariaDB 5.5.
Interested in contributing to MariaDB but have a question about the code, or not sure where to start? Join #maria on Freenode IRC every Monday @ 8:00 to 10:00 UTC where someone will be present live to help you out. https://t.co/3cuEynLNKa
