credativ helps establishing database track at Open Source Summit

Philip Haas

Open Source Summit is the world's largest, all-encompassing open source conference. Topics such as the latest infrastructure software, development on the Linux kernel and current works in open source communities are discussed. Until now, open source databases were a missing part of the conference program.

However, databases such as PostgreSQL or Apache Cassandra are one of the most important pillars in modern open source infrastructures.

Together with the Linux Foundation, we are pleased to announce that this year's Open Source Summit North America and Europe each will have their own database track.

Together with Sunil Kamath (Microsoft) and Divya Bhargov (Pivotal), our Managing Director Dr. Michael Meskes forms the program committee for the new track of the event.

Dr. Michael Meskes comments this in his blog post at the Linux Foundation as follows:

"The open source database track will feature topics specific to databases themselves and their integration to the computing backbone for applications. The track will focus on databases of all kinds, as long as they are open source, and any deployment and integration topics."

The complete blog post of the Linux Foundation can be found here.

The Linux Foundation and the program committee are looking forward to plenty of submissions for this track. Presentations can be submitted until 16 February (North America) and 14 June (Europe).

This year's Open Source Summit North America will take place in Austin, Texas. Whereas the Open Source Summit Europe will be hosted in Dublin, Ireland. Both events are once again backed by credativ with a sponsorship.
