At M|17, MariaDB‘s first user conference, we heard plenty about the virtues of open source. The story of Singapore-based DBS Bank stood out, in part due to their scale. But I especially liked how they tied digital change/customer experience into their DevOps and microservices ambitions. Here's what I learned during our sit down after the keynote.
Sharing public health care data sounds straightforward. But when you're trying to do it visually at massive scale, that's another matter entirely. At the MariaDB user conference, I got the inside view of how IHME powers its interactive health visualizations from Andrew Ernst. It's a story of open source tools, including MariaDB ColumnStore, and the attempt to turn data into lasting change.
MariaDB's first annual user conference in New York City found MariaDB CEO Michael Howard in a confident mood. I decided to push issues, like whether "the revenge of relational databases" favors the incumbents, and see if I could find any cracks. I didn't get those, but I got some spicy/illuminating responses. I also learned why MariaDB thinks its "open source mandate" will carry the day.
One of the best things about MariaDB's first annual user conference (M|17) was hearing from open source advocates who flew in from APAC countries to tell their stories. Alibaba presented on how they use open source at monster cloud scale. I also got some interesting views on why some open source database projects are a lot better than others.
