You can already feel the cold of February coming slowly… you can also smell waffles, fries and see a large amount of beards walking around with laptops… you are right, FOSDEM is coming! And as every year, the MySQL Community will also be present! For the 4th year in a row, I’ll perpetuate the organization of the MySQL & Friends Devroom.
FOSDEM 2015 edition will be held January 31 and February 1 here in Brussels. The MySQL & Friends Devroom is back on Sunday from 9 a.m. What is FOSDEM? It stands for the “Free and Open Source Software Developers’ European Meeting.” It’s a free event that offers open-source communities a place to meet, share ideas and collaborate.
As every year, the “Call for Papers” has been announced on the MySQL mailing list, and you can still read it here. CfP is open until December 7th!
This year the committee responsible for the talk’s selection is composed by:
* Dimitri Kravtchuk, representing Oracle
* Daniël van Eeden for the Community
* Roland Bouman for the Community
* Cédric Peintre for the Community
* Liz van Dijk, representing Percona
* Serge Frezefond, representing MariaDB
* René Cannaò, representing Blackbird IT
Thanks to all who have accepted playing this role and I wish them to work hard and make the best schedule as possible.
Don’t forget to submit your sessions (submit here, don’t forget to select MySQL track) in time and see you soon in Brussels to discover amazing stuff related to MySQL and have some beers with Friends!
