FOSDEM 2023 MySQL Devroom – extra info

Hi all,

As you know the CfP for the devroom has been open and you may have noticed that we have only half a day that we also need to share.

Therefore, we will have only 4 sessions and they should look like this:

We didn’t decide yet which of the two colors will be for which project.

Due to the very low number of sessions, we will not attempt to compose a selection committee.

Managing a committee to find the candidates, collect their decisions, communicate and especially ask for votes (and yes often these are very busy people) is a time consuming process.

FOSDEM 2022 MySQL devroom schedule updated !


Due to a complete misunderstanding about the available slots, FOSDEM’s organization had to remove 2 talks from the previous planned agenda.

However, we didn’t want to announce to previously accepted speakers that their talks were cancelled ! Therefore, we decided, with FOSDEM’s approval, to extend the FOSDEM 2022 MySQL Devroom, opening our room on Saturday afternoon.

Two talks were then moved to Saturday and the two backup talks were immediately added to the schedule !

More work for us and our speakers but more pleasure for all the MySQL fans !

Don’t miss FOSDEM MySQL Devroom’s 2022 edition, free online conference.
