İstanbul 2010 Monty Program Ab Firma Toplantısı ve Konferans

(English version) Herhalde bildiğiniz gibi, biz tamamen sanal şirketiz, yani ana merkez gibi bir şeyimiz yok. Hepimiz evinden çalışıyor ve biz sadece bir ya da iki kez yılda gerçek hayatta buluşuyorus. Bu sene kararımız İstanbul‘a düştü.  Firmadaki tek Türk ben olduğumdan dolayı toplantının organizesi bana düştü.

İlk adım olarak böyle bir toplantının özelikleri nedir ve en iyi şekilde nasıl hazır edilir diye araştırdım. Kaj Arnö bunun ayrıntılarını blog’unda açıklamış bile: How to arrange a physical meeting in a virtual organisation. Kaj ile İstanbul’a 2008’de gelmiştik ve çeşitli konferanslar vermiştik.

İlk toplantı tarihi ile ilgili bir anket yaptık ve İstanbul’daki toplantı Ekim ayına karar verdik. Tam olarak, Perşembe, 7 Ekim’den Salı, 12 Ekim 2010’a kadar.

Yaklaşık 30 kişilik toplantıyı düzenlemek pek bir basit görev değil, bu nedenle toplantıyı hazırlanmak için bana bir asistan tahsis edildi – oldukçada ünlü bir asistan  – My Widenius. My (okunuşu Mü) MySQL’ın My’sü ve ona bir e-posta adresinle ulaşabilisiniz.

Eğer Ekim’in başında İstanbul’da iseniz, sizi bizim toplantıya davet etmekten mutluluk duyarız. Üç toplantı günleri olacaktır: Cuma 8 Ekim, Cumartesi 9 Ekim ve Pazar 10 Ekim 2010. Toplantıların çoğu herkese açık olacaktır. Misafirlerimiz olarak Facebook, Percona ve Intel bizlen olucak.

Ayrıca yerel (İstanbul) kullanıcı grupları ve bizim toplantıya ilgilenlerini arıyoruz. Sizi İstanbul’da görmek üzere, …

MariaDB 5.1.49 for Mac OS X

Stuttgart: a rainy day, waiting for Iftar. Good time for good news!

During my vacation I read about a request for a MariaDB package for Mac OS X  and did some research. Back from vacation I have an alpha version of MariaDB package for Mac OS X for  our community to test.

Caution: this is the first installer I ever wrote on a Mac, so use it on a test system only!

I would like you to test the installer and provide us with feedback.

Known issues in the MariaDB installer:

  • The Preferences Pane app for starting/stopping the server instance is missing
  • The installer for setting up MariaDB as a Startup Item is missing.

Side node: while digging into the Mac installer I found two
bugs in the MySQL Mac OS X installer.

You can grab the package from here:

Monty Program Ab All Company Meeting in Istanbul 2010

(Türkçesi) As you might know, we are a completely virtual company and we only meet once or twice a year in real life. This year’s decision on where to meet is Istanbul. Being the only Turkish citizen born in Germany with Georgian ancestors in the company, I was asked to organize our meeting.

My first step was to look for excellence: Kaj Arnö’s blog post about How to arrange a physical meeting in a virtual organisation.

We first conducted an internal poll about the meeting date and decided on meeting in Istanbul in October. Specifically, from Thursday, October 7th until Tuesday, October 12th 2010.

Organizing a meeting for around 30 people is not a trivial task, therefore I got an assistant — a quite famous and popular one to be be frank — My Widenius joined me for preparing our meeting. My is the My in MySQL and she has a email address now.

If you will be in Istanbul at the beginning of October, please feel free to drop us a note and we will be happy to invite you to one of our meetings. We will have three meetings days: Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. The majority of the meetings each day will be public. We already have guests in our queue from Facebook, Percona, and Intel.

We are also looking for local (Istanbul) user groups and individuals who have interest in meeting us.
