Ghosts of MySQL past, part 8.1: Five Years
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

With many apologies to David Bowie, come 2009 it was my 5 year anniversary with Sun (well, MySQL AB and then Sun). Companies tend to like to talk about how they like to retain employees and that many employees stay with the company for a long time. It is very, very expensive to hire the right people, so this is largely a good plan.

In 2009, it was five years since I joined MySQL AB – something I didn’t quite originally expect (let’s face it, in the modern tech industry you’re always surprised when you’re somewhere for more than a few …

Oracle's MySQL Connect 2013 conference summary
+3 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Although, hosting the event on a weekend, which is an inconvenience to those who have family, and ignoring the fact that it's Oracle's third MySQL Connect event, I would have to say that this year's Oracle MySQL Connect conference was the best one yet.

This past year, I have been mostly heads-down working at +LinkedIn so I haven't been paying close attention to what Oracle has been doing for +

On the clarity of licensing
+2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Being clear in licensing is a great benefit to users. I’m quite proud that with Drizzle we got to a really simple situation:

  • server is GPLv2
  • client libraries are BSD licensed and are fresh implementations

We had the complete okay from Sun to have libdrizzle be BSD licensed and for us to work on that.

ZFS: could have been the future of UNIX Filesystems
+5 Vote Up -0Vote Down

There was a point a few years ago where Sun could have had the next generation UNIX filesystem. It was in Solaris (and people were excited), there was a port to MacOS X (that was quite exciting for people) and there was a couple of ways to run it on linux (and people were excited). So… instead of the fractured landscape of ext3, HFS+ and (the various variations of) UFS we could have had one file system that was common between all of the commonly used UNIX-like variants. Think of being able to use a file system on a removable drive that …
