Firebird Conference 2019 17-Oct-2019

Location: Berlin, Germany

This year the Firebird Conference will be focused on Firebird 4 and will also include a series of workshops: extended presentations and practical exercises. We want to make it more educational, more practical, and less theoretical.

There will be 3 days, split into 2 parts:

Day 1. Firebird 4 Bootcamp

3 parallel tracks of presentations, focused on Firebird 4 “how-tos”; new features, migration, setup and maintain replication, security settings, tips for development with Delphi, Java, .NET among others. The idea of Day 1 is to prepare a developer for Firebird 4, there will be keynotes and detailed feature descriptions from Firebird core developers and “how tos” from experienced speakers.

Day 2-3. Advanced topics and workshops

There will be up to 4 tracks of extended presentations and workshops. Extended presentations will be done mostly by core developers, giving insights into how Firebird internals work. The workshop is a type of conference, known by people who attended the Firebird Tour; a half of a day, devoted solely to a single complicated topic. During the conference we will repeat the workshops “All About Transactions” and “SQL Query Optimisation” - these new editions will also include aspects of new features found in Firebird 4. Attendees who come to these workshops can send in questions prior to the conference, and during the workshops sessions these questions will be answered.
