It seems that the FirebirdSQL site got updated with information regarding the next Firebird International Conference. This time, the conference will be held in Berlin – October, 17-19.
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.
Complete information, including prices and early bird registration can be found at www.firebirdsql.org/en/firebird-conference-2019/
The printed version of the Migration Guide to Firebird 3 was previously available trough CreateSpace site. Since the recent merge of CreateSpace and Amazon’s Kindle Direct Publishing, the printed book had became unavailable.
I’m glad to announce that the printed version of the Guide (in English) is now available in several Amazon sites around the world. If you prefer to have a physical copy instead of the eBook, you can buy it visiting the Guide’s page.
Os brasileiros podem adquirir a versão impressa (em português) diretamente no site da FireBase.
