Quite excited about this new MySQL ecosystem conference, this one specifically about the primary fork of MySQL, MariaDB. (Or you may think of it as the original MySQL, pre-Oracle fork.) Equally excited it’s on the East Coast.

I’m sketching out three different proposals, one of course around data encryption. Here’s the note from the conference announcement: “All speakers with accepted proposals will receive a full conference pass for M|17. The deadline to submit your speaking proposal is Tuesday, January 10 at 11:59 p.m. PST.” Check it out, hope to see you there!
