Firebird International Conference 2019

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.

Introducing Firebird Butler

We are pleased to announce a significant extension of the Firebird project to a whole new area. Starting in February 2019, alongside the core (Firebird database system) and database drivers, a completely new division called Firebird Butler is integrated into the project. The purpose of the Butler division is to develop and provide solutions to various Firebird-related challenges faced by Firebird administrators and application developers that, for practical reasons, are not addressed by the core Firebird distribution.

The primary aim of Firebird Butler is to create a development platform and develop a set of basic solutions to manage Firebird installations of any size, structure and complexity.  The emphasis is on large corporate installations but the scope and ambitions of the Firebird Butler project are much broader:  we would like to initiate development of an entire open source ecosystem of projects and other products, including commercial ones, in various languages. Projects could encompass not just the planned new services, but alternative implementations of the standard services as well. Moreover, the Firebird Butler Development Platform should become a solid foundation for development of any applications that use Service Oriented Architecture and messaging.

For a closer look at the project goals and strategies, please read the “Introduction to Firebird Butler”.

Although the project is only in the early stages of development, we encourage you to take a close look at what we have and where we are going. The project is completely open, and we will welcome anyone, individuals or organizations, who is interested in the objectives and strategy of the project and wishes to participate in its development, in a common or entirely private capacity, or to become its sponsor.

Firebird Butler also presents a great opportunity for developers with experience in Python, Java, FreePascal, Delphi, C# or other languages to get involved in Firebird project activities.
The Firebird Project Team
