Firebird Conference 2019
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. 

Below you can find the detailed schedule of the conference. There will be several additional sessions, which will appear in the schedule a bit later, but all major talks are confirmed.
