MySQL & Friends Dev.room - Sunday, February 1st, 2015:
During Saturday we staffed the MySQL booth with a guest from Java team sharing the table with us. We got a several good questions on MySQL, JSON features, MySQL support, news and more. However we found out that the MySQL dolphins were even more popular than the boogie boots 2 years ago... almost all of them were out by end of Saturday's afternoon!
The evening on Saturday there was a MySQL & Friends community dinner organized by Percona. This evening event socializing and getting the MySQLers together starting to be a tradition at FOSDEM, but this time also with a MySQL 20 years anniversary celebration with a fantastic MySQL cake!!! Almost all 36 registered attendees stayed till 11pm when we cut the cake. Many thanks (especially to Liz Van Dijk who made the cake by herself) for all the effort with arranging this great dinner!
