Extending MariaDB with user-defined functions

  • Andrew Hutchings, Lead Engineer at MariaDB
  • Sylvain Arbaudie, Consultant at MariaDB
Session Abstract

Learn how to write user-defined functions (UDFs) as stored functions or C/C++ extensions. While MariaDB Server provides a wide range of built-in functions defined in the SQL specification, some applications can benefit from custom-built, server-side functions. Want to build a function to calculate the Tanimoto coefficient between two chemical compounds or genes? In this advanced session, MariaDB's Andrew Hutchings and Sylvain Arbaudie will get you started writing UDFs that could give you a leg up on the competition.
