Speaking in December 2016

I neglected to mention my November appearances but I’ll just write trip reports for all this. December appearances are:

  • ACMUG MySQL Special Event – Beijing, China – 10 December 2016 – come learn about Percona Server, MyRocks and lots more!
  • A bit of a Japan tour, we will be in Osaka on the 17th, Sapporo on the 19th, and Tokyo on the 21st. A bit of talk of the various proxies as well as the various servers that exist in the MySQL ecosystem.

Looking forward to discussing MySQL and its ecosystem this December!

Speaking in July 2016

  • Texas LinuxFest – July 8-9 2016 – Austin, Texas – I’ve never spoken at this event before but have heard great things about it. I’ve got a morning talk about what’s in MariaDB Server 10.1, and what’s coming in 10.2.
  • db tech showcase – July 13-15 2016 – Tokyo, Japan – I’ve regularly spoken at this event and its a case of a 100% pure database conference, with a very captive audience. I’ll be talking about the lessons one can learn from other people’s database failures (this is the kind of talk that keeps on changing and getting better as the software improves).
  • The MariaDB Tokyo Meetup – July 21 2016 – Tokyo, Japan – Not the traditional meetup timing, since its 1.30pm-7pm, there will be many talks and its organised by the folk behind the SPIDER storage engine. It should be fun to see many people and food is being provided too. In Japanese: MariaDB コミュニティイベント in Tokyo, MariaDB Community Event in TOKYO.

MariaDB in Japan

Pre-UC-J MySQL Dinner at GonpachiMariaDB is in Debian/unstable now, and its great to see that we already have a Japanese po-debconf translation (in under a month!). The last time I was in Tokyo, Japan we seemed to have great interest in MariaDB, especially with the backing of MariaDB.com/SkySQL investment dollars and the MariaDB Foundation to keep things real.

For me, I’m happy to go back to Tokyo to talk to users about MariaDB. If you’re in the area on Tuesday, 18 February 2013, there is a gathering of MariaDB users in Tokyo. It’s a half day event (1.30pm-10pm), you get dinner and drinks, but the best part is that the co-founders of MySQL, David Axmark and Michael “Monty” Widenius will also be there to present. 

So what are you waiting for – go ahead and register, and see you on Tuesday, 18 February 2013. Looking forward to great discussions about MariaDB, MySQL, and more.

Upcoming MariaDB/MySQL events: Tokyo, Buenos Aires

To bring to attention those who will be in Tokyo, Japan or Buenos Aires, Argentina:

  1. MariaDB/MySQL Community Event – 9 October 2013 – Tokyo, Japan. Come see Michael Carney, Ivan Zoratti, Kentoku Shiba (creator of the SPIDER storage engine) and Colin Charles at this event. It is from 12.30pm – 8pm, and includes evening cocktails to some extent. It should be free to attend.
  2. MySQL NoSQL Cloud – 15-16 October 2013 – Buenos Aires, Argentina. This is the second such conference happening in Buenos Aires, and this time there are plenty of speakers who didn’t make it around the first time. Cost is nominal.
