MySQL Writer Wanted!

As MySQL is thriving and growing, we're looking for an experienced technical writer to join the MySQL documentation team. The documentation team is located in EMEA and in North America, and so you should be.

Ghosts of MySQL past, part 8.1: Five Years

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 years).

The whole process of having been with sun for 5 years seemed rather impersonal… it largely felt like a form letter automatically sent out with a certificate and small badge (below). You also got to go onto a web site and choose from a variety of gifts. So, what did I choose? The one thing that would be useful at Burning Man: a camelbak.

Why Oracle won’t kill MySQL

Join 15,000 others and follow Sean Hull on twitter @hullsean. 1. MySQL does not compete with Oracle It’s a myth that MySQL somehow poses a threat to Oracle. Oracle’s customers tend to be large enterprises running apps like e-business suite. These are certified to run on Oracle, and further they sit close to finance. MySQL […]

Oracle's MySQL Connect 2013 conference summary

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

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.

MySQL tech writer position on Oracle jobs site

Just in case you missed this, last week I announced that my team is looking for an experienced technical writer. Now the job offer has gone live on the Oracle website. Have a look!
