Good Monday morning from London, Europe.
Welcome (back) to the Federico-Razzoli.com newsletter: updates, events and insights from the open source database world, in your mailbox every Monday morning.
Next most interesting events I am aware of:
I will give a talk entitled How MySQL can boost (or will) your web application at three different events in the UK:

- PHP & Databases: How MySQL can boost (or kill) your PHP application, March 16, 2020
This week I published an article for MariaDB DBAs – but actually it could also be useful for Db2, SQL Server and Oracle DBAs, though the terminology and syntax are a bit different. Please let me know your thoughts about the ideas I provide in the article. Your comments make my articles better!
