This year’s 1024 Festival is coming again! It’s another important holiday for the TiDB community!

Since my cousin joined the community, we’ve had an annual 1024 Programmer’s Wish Festival!

The Wish Festival doesn’t have any special goals,

We just want to take this opportunity to reward you, the community members,

You’ve worked hard for 10 months this year,

It’s time to give you some gifts and blessings to comfort you: for your family, for your dreams, for your life, fighting on the front lines,

Not afraid of hardship, hair loss, and pressure, carrying the mission of family happiness.

Since the establishment of the TiDB community in 2019, the community has flourished with the joint efforts of all TiDBers!
