I will be in Manila, Philippines from September 13 – 17 2010. If you want to learn more about MariaDB, talk about MySQL, or just talk about open source in general, there are several opportunities for this:
- Y4iT 2010 (event is September 14-17): Thursday, September 16 2010, 1.50pm, the talk I will give is titled: MariaDB: The new M in LAMP. It was a popular attention grabber during OSCON, where we had a MariaDB booth, and this is a completely new talk, so should be fun to give in front of a huge audience.
- MySQL/MariaDB Meetup on September 16 2010, 4-6pm, at Bahay ng Alumni. This is a meetup, and will be informal, so good for Q&A. Manila doesn’t have a regular MySQL Meetup group, and we’re hoping to kick something off here. Much thanks to Rom Feria, who helped putting everyone together to have this organised!
- DevCon at Y4iT, September 15 2010, 4.30-7.30pm, there will be a lightning talk on MariaDB. These talks are not 5 minutes long, but 10 minutes.
If you’d like to meetup anytime during the week, don’t hesitate to drop me a message via email (colin[at]montyprogram[dot]com) or @reply me on Twitter – I’m @bytebot. I will have my mobile with me, so don’t hesitate to drop me an SMS if required.
