We'd like to invite you to the Firebird event of the year - The Firebird International Conference 2014.
It will last for 2 days, and takes place on October 24-25th, in Prague. The Conference will be devoted to 2 main topics: Firebird 3 features and Firebird performance.
With Firebird 3 Beta 1 (due to be announced next week) you will be in a position to start testing, doing development or considering migration to Firebird 3.0, and, since Firebird 3.0's SuperServer configuration shows three times better performance than Firebird 2.5 SuperClassic, it is probably not a bad idea!
(Note: There will be special sessions devoted to performance testing and comparison of Firebird 3,9 v's Firebird 2.5.)
Dmitry Yemanov and Vlad Khorsun (core developers of Firebird) will present detailed explanations of the new features in Firebird 3.0, with focus on its architectural changes and advantages which this new technology will give to Firebird users.
There will be two very special speakers at Firebird Conference: Ann Harrison and Jim Starkey (the original creator of InterBase), presenting interesting topics about multi-threading and orphan database pages.
There will be sessions devoted to the new abilities of performance monitoring with Firebird 3.0 enhancements, and a session about Firebird database recovery and how to avoid possible database corruption.
The developers responsible for the Firebird JDBC/.NET drivers will also be at the conference, so this is a good chance to ask questions about optimal performance and future development.
And, as usual, Firebird Conference is also is good place to meet with existing friends and make new friends, to find like-minded people and get invaluable experience and conversation.
