I sent out a call for submissions for our DevRoom yesterday - your help in
spreading the word would be appreciated!


It's that time of the year again — the nice folks at FOSDEM have granted us a
developer room at their upcoming conference (February 5+6 2011 in Brussels,

As usual there were more applications than they were able to accommodate, so
we are very grateful for this opportunity for collaboration. Titled "MySQL and
Friends", our room next year will be H.2213 with a capacity of 100 seats. It
will be at our disposal on Saturday 5th, from 13:00 till 19:00. Like last
year, we would like to set up a schedule of talks related to the MySQL server
and the various projects that surround it. Each talk will last 20 minutes,
plus 5 minutes of Q&A and a 5 minute break for switching speakers, giving us
12 slots in total to fill with excellent tech talks. Take a look at this
year's schedule (http://forge.mysql.com/wiki/FOSDEM_2010_Developer_Room) for
some examples! I hope we can assemble an even more exciting and interesting
schedule for next year.

Quoting from my last year's call for papers

We are looking for covering a wide range of topics that attract both MySQL
DBAs as well as application developers that work with MySQL as their database
of choice. Are you developing a new storage engine or other plugin? Do you
want to share your experiences and best practices in administering or
deploying MySQL servers? Did you develop a new method to scale a MySQL setup?
Let us and the audience know about it! You can submit your talk proposal via
this submission form:


The deadline for turning in your proposal is Sunday, 26th of December, 2010,
after which there will be a voting and rating period to identify the most
interesting and attractive topics.

Please check the FOSDEM 2011 information page on the MySQL Forge Wiki
(http://forge.mysql.com/wiki/FOSDEM_2011) for more details and don't hesitate
to contact me directly, if you have any questions or suggestions. I look
forward to your proposals!
