Autumn speaking engagements

In the next two months I am going to attend as a speaker six virtual events, with three different talks and different audiences. Some events are free, some are not. Details and registration links or discount codes below, all talks are in English.

Hope to (virtually) meet you soon!

Percona Live Online 2020

“Serverless Databases: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly” is the topic of my talk at Percona Live Online. After a lightning talk at Percona Live Europe in Dublin and a few posts for the Percona Community Blog, I am looking forward to be (virtually) on stage at Percona Live Online!

The conference will run for 28 hours on 20-21 October 2020 and will cover topics on Open Source Databases and Applications using MySQL, PostgreSQL, MongoDB, and MariaDB. You can find the full agenda online and register for free.

A blog preview of my talk is available on the Open Source Database Community Blog

Hey, where is my country?

Straight from my living room, the video of my talk at Dev Around the Sun last month.

What looks like a simple choice in a drop-down list, can turn into a PR nightmare. Integrating an external mapping service can unintentionally make many of your users unhappy. How can software developers and startups manage location-based services in disputed territories or partially recognized state?

How can you make all your users happy? A few tips and tricks for the developer who targets an international audience but wants to rely on location data to control new features.
