Thank you, everyone behind MySQL AB!

For more than nine years, I worked for MySQL AB and its successors, Sun Microsystems and Oracle. I handed in my resignation late June, two days before Sun’s German legal entity ceased to exist. Germany isn’t a country where you quit HP one day and join Oracle the next, so I had a long summer with plenty of so-called Garden Leave. Last Thursday was my last day, and I’m now outside MySQL AB, outside Sun Microsystems, outside Oracle.

Like all the many former colleagues who resigned before me, I did so with mixed feelings. Leaving the colleagues, finding freedom, I think you follow. The topmost feeling I have, the one I want to highlight right now, is gratitude. I’m very grateful for what MySQL AB has meant for my career, my personal development, my life experiences, my social life. Let me mention a small subset of the people that made my life at MySQL AB, and later Sun Microsystems, a truly memorable …

Monty doesn't say ...

Monty says:

During the last 2 years, I have seen a lot of the people that originally worked at MySQL AB and who joined Sun together with me, go away in different directions. More than 50 % of them have already left Sun/Oracle.

Matthew Montgomery commented...

I'm curious where you are getting that > 50% number? How would you have any access to that sort of HR information? Sounds like one of those numbers that falls under the "83% of all statistics are made up" rule.

And Monty answered

The MySQL Alumini in linkedin group has close to 200 members, a majority that also joined Sun and this group doesn't include all people that have left. I have also heard the number 50 % from MySQL people that recently left Oracle, so I have good reasons to believe that this figure is reasonable accurate. …

Monty to speak at Open Source Bridge 2010

Open Source Bridge dubs itself as the conference for open source citizens. It happens June 1-4 2010, in beautiful Portland, Oregon. The young event (it celebrates its second birthday this year), seems to already have a great database track.

From Monty Program Ab, we have Monty himself leading a session on The State of MariaDB. So if you want to go meet the creator of MySQL, the founder of MariaDB, or just taste some Salmiakki vodka, you certainly want to be there at Open Source Bridge.

MySQL is gone. Here comes MariaDB and Drizzle.
