Another Idea to Help Foster a Vibrant Community: Please make all bugs public
+4 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Since MySQL recently implemented the following feature request (and discussed here and here) to help foster communication among public bugs and feature requests, and to provide a way to allow the Community to voice whether or not a bug affects them, I decided to file another feature request that I think would even further encourage communication amongst an already vibrant community, and that is to simply:

Awesome to see the MySQL Ecosystem Flourishing
+6 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I just wanted to take a moment and thank, notice, what ever you want to call it, but share some love with all those and all things MySQL.

I read the post Let’s Celebrate MySQL 5.6 GA! – MySQL Community Reception by Oracle by Oracle MySQL Group and it got me to thinking of how proud I am of (and proud to be a part of) the whole MySQL Ecosystem.

We *should* all celebrate MySQL 5.6 GA! I well remember the 3.22 and 3.23 days, and there were many folks before me already using MySQL!!!

I love to see how it has continued to grow, the ecosystem and all things MySQL, that is. …

Congratulations to all of the 2012 Community Contributor Award Winners!
+6 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I just wanted to take a moment and say congratulations to all of the 2012 Community Contributor Award Winners!

The usual suspects, Baron, Sarah, Gerardo, and Sheeri, each won, and deservedly so. All 4 contribute a great deal to the MySQL Community and ecosystem, and it is very much appreciated.

However, I was especially happy to hear that James Day was also a winner (a name everyone might not be so familiar with). But, having worked with James for 5 years, I really couldn’t say it better than Henrik Ingo already did (in his initial post of this year’s winners), so …

MySQL Community on Freenode
+3 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I recently posted about how we, MySQL Community Managers, are trying to reach out more to the MySQL User groups and the MySQL Community.
The room has been quiet to far but it is a new room. You can find us in #MySQL_Community & #MySQL_user_groups on freenode.
A few common issues have come out that I have heard before. We as a community can work to address these concerns.

  • List of user groups
  • Few volunteers
  • Difficulty in getting good legit speakers
  • Low attendance

As MySQL Community Managers, Dave an myself are always looking for ways to gather feedback on MySQL. 
We want to make ourselves available to you. The current plan is the last Monday of every month Dave and Myself will be on #freenode and join a chat room called MySQL_user_groups. 
We will also try to be available as much as possible in a chat room called MySQL_Community.
You can join us and ask questions or just let us know your opinions. 
We want to hear about everything from your best presentation topics, to the worst. What is the biggest struggle you find with user groups ? How could Oracle help? 

User Group Leadership Summit
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Day three of the User Group Leadership Summit is here and MySQL has continued to have a valid presence from the community as well as the Oracle Team.

George Trujillo introduced MySQL for the Oracle DBA to a very attentive audience.
Ronald Bradford gave a great presentation on why people should use MySQL.
Sheeri Cabral talked on the MySQL Community and user groups. Members of Oracle user groups showed great interest in the MySQL User groups.

So how can I summarize the summit in one line:
Oracle DBA user group members are interested in MySQL and the community!
