Looking to Hire a MySQL DBA or Developer?

“Why can’t I find an MySQL DBAs or Developers?” This morning I got a message from a very perplexed Human Resources person on why their ads on Linkedin were not getting any results.

If you’re in Madrid and are interested please let me know. I’ve created a temporary  email address: madrid-mysql-users-2013 AT (careful with the domain), which you can contact me on to confirm an interest.  Oh and I’d expect these meet ups to be in Spanish, but that’s not a requirement.
