The SkySQL and MariaDB Roadshow comes to The Netherlands

21 March 2013 in Amsterdam

SkySQL and Monty Program are on the road with our joint Meetup in Amsterdam where Monty Widenius will unveil his vision of the future of the MySQL database via MariaDB.

In addition to Monty, we will have speakers from Codership/Galera, Booking.com as well as experts from SkySQL.

The latest trends around the MySQL and MariaDB databases will be discussed, in cloud and high availability scenarios.

After the presentations you will have a chance to network during lunch and of course ask us any additional questions you might have.

We only have a limited number of seats available, so please register as soon as possible.

The event is free.

We are looking forward to meeting you in Amsterdam!
