More Events! :)

First, I'm co-chairing Berlin Buzzwords, a conference on big data, scalability & search.

It is in Berlin (duh) on June 7th and 8th.

Find all infos here: http://berlinbuzzwords.de/

There are still a few tickets available. Hope to see you there and maybe share a drink :)

Prior to the conference, on Sunday, June 6th, there is a BarCamp for which you need
to pre-register: http://barcamp.org/BarCampBerlinBuzzwords

See you there!

Second, Giuseppe Maxia asked me to point your attention to OpenSQL Camp.
(Which I plan to attend, too)
 
OpenSQL Camp is a free conference of, by, and for the open-source database
community of users and developers. The OpenSQLCamp 2010, European Edition
(http://opensqlcamp.org/) will take part in parallel to the Free and Open
Source Conference 2010 (http://froscon.org/) on Saturday 21st and Sunday 22nd
August in St. Augustin, Germany, which is located close to Bonn and Cologne.

The goal of this event is to spread the word about the vibrant communities and
large ecosystems that exist around Open Source Databases and to educate the
attendees about possible alternatives to commercial databases. It is a place
where people come to learn, to participate and to contribute.

We would like to invite your project to participate in this event.

We've set up a call for participation (http://opensqlcamp.org/Events/2010/Call_for_Participation)
 - the deadline for submitting your proposal is 
July 11th.

We are seeking talks related to Open Source Databases of all kind, not just
relational databases! Submission about tools and technologies related to OSS
databases (e.g. connectors/APIs) are also welcome. 

Some ideas and for submissions:

* A how to presentation, showing how to solve a common problem in the database field. 
* An introduction/overview about a certain database project/product or related tool
* Providing "best practices" information for administrators 
* A deeply technical and developer-centric session about some project's 
  internals or an API used to connect to a database

We look forward to your contribution! Please don't hesitate to contact us via
IRC (#opensqlcamp on FreeNode) or our Discussion Group
(http://groups.google.com/group/opensqlcamp)

Cheers
Jan
