Track Descriptions

  • Real-world case studies

    MariaDB customers will share business and technical database requirements and why they chose to standardize on MariaDB, current and future use cases, what they learned after migrating from a proprietary database, how they run on container infrastructure and their overall experience with MariaDB thus far.

  • Product internals and roadmap

    MariaDB engineers will go under the hood to explain how things like Oracle Database compatibility and different storage engines work while MariaDB product managers will provide an overview of the next release and an update on strategic initiatives, including DBaaS, machine learning and MariaDB Manager.

  • Operations and infrastructure

    MariaDB solutions engineers will share best practices for DBAs in the areas of HA/DR, performance, scalability and security as well as recommendations and tips for migrating from Oracle Database and how to get started with containers using Docker Compose, Kubernetes Helm charts and Red Hat OpenShift.

  • Modern application development

    Learn how to build web, mobile and Internet of Things (IoT) applications and microservices in Java, .NET and Node.js using modern SQL, built-in JSON functions, geospatial objects, temporal queries and user-defined functions – and how to write powerful but elegant queries with ease.

  • Scalable interactive analytics

    Get to know MariaDB Platform’s analytical capabilities and discover how innovators are using distributed, columnar databases to query hundreds of billions of rows in seconds with ad hoc, interactive queries (and no indexes) – and how to incorporate streaming data and machine learning with Apache Kafka and Apache Spark.
