Why I don't care about open core any more
+2 Vote Up -2Vote Down

For reasons that I will blog about in a couple of weeks, several people last week asked me what I think about open core. My answer was that nowadays I don't care much about the topic. Long time readers of this blog might be surprised at such an answer, so I thought this was a good time to reflect on why I don't think it is very important anymore, and more importantly to document the empirical evindence that we now have about open core as a business strategy.

MariaDB participates in Google Summer of Code 2013
+3 Vote Up -0Vote Down

MariaDB is very happy to be accepted as a project in the Google Summer of Code 2013. This will be our first year participating and we’re stoked that we’re one of the accepted organizations. We have an ideas list as always, and we’re expecting to get some great mentors & students to hack on some new code for the MariaDB project (which now comprises not just the server, but Galera Cluster as well as the connectors). Watch this space for more information, but if you’re interested in hacking on MySQL, MariaDB, Galera Cluster or some of the Percona toolkit, and it’s a summer’s worth of work, this should be a lot of fun!

Report : Bangalore MySQL User Camp (BMUC) 22 Mar
Employee +1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

We had a great kickoff to the Bangalore MySQL User camp on 22 March 2013 at the Oracle Kalyani Magnum Office.

There were 17 attendees from the MySQL community besides more than 15 MySQL engineers who attended the meet. Of these 3 community members were from groups inside Oracle. There was a mix of new and veteran MySQL users. The MySQL India teams gave a brief introduction about themselves, followed by a quick overdrew of MySQL and how it is different from other databases. The presentation about 5.6 features was presented last and the one that was most liked. There was a great networking over juice and Donuts after the meeting. There were lots of questions by the community on technical details of 5.6 features. Everyone interacted and there was help offered for ensuring that the next meeting on 19th June 2013 is an even greater success.

Thanks

What other pluggable authentication plugins would you like in MariaDB?
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

MariaDB has had pluggable authentication since MariaDB 5.2. Our most popular authentication plugin that we ship in MariaDB is the PAM authentication plugin. Naturally one is curious to see if users would like to see more authentication plugins being made available, so we’ve posted a poll on Facebook. Please feel free to add your vote to the poll so we have a better idea of where to focus our future pluggable authentication development.
