FOSDEM MySQL Survey Positive for MariaDB

FOSDEM in Brussels, Belgium was a great community event again this year. The MySQL community booth was maned by Oracle MySQL, Percona, Galera and MariaDB. Thanks Kenny, Liz & co for also organising a fun community dinner on Saturday! The MySQL dev room was packed with participants listening to some very interesting presentations, amongst them MaxScale, which got some considerable interest from the audience.

We took the opportunity to ask some of the MySQL booth visitors a few questions. The results gave some positive statistics for MariaDB from the 44 participants. It would be interesting to do the survey for an even larger audience in the future.
