Beyond spending time getting ready for Velocity and Open Source Summit Europe this week, there was some feature testing this week that compared MySQL and MariaDB. Naturally, a long report/blog is coming soon. Stay tuned.

Releases

I reckon a lot of folks are swamped after Percona Live Europe Dublin and Oracle OpenWorld, so the releases in the MySQL universe are a bit quieter.

Feedback

I was asked why there weren’t many talks from MariaDB Foundation / MariaDB Corporation at Percona Live Europe 2017. Simple answer: there were hardly any submissions. We had two talk submissions from one speaker from the MariaDB Foundation (we accepted the one on MariaDB 10.3). There was another talk submission from a speaker from MariaDB Corporation (again, accepted). We announced the second talk in the sneak preview, but the talk was canceled as the speaker was unable to attend. We did, however, have a deep breadth of talks about MariaDB, with many talks that discussed high availability, security, proxies and the like.

I look forward to feedback/tips via e-mail at colin.charles@percona.com or on Twitter @bytebot.
