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

Changing Gears

This week I'm changing gears of my life. On Friday (5th September), I  yodeled and bled purple for one last time. It has been 2 years and 8 months when I first joined Yahoo! directly from college during which the size of Yahoo!, here at Bangalore, has almost tripled. Definitely the most rewarding and learning time for me as I worked and interacted with some really cool, supportive and intelligent people.

It was really a difficult decision to consider as I had no reasons to leave. It took me some time to convince myself. The only reason probably is that I got an opportunity to do something that always wanted to, that is working for a startup :).

Starting Monday I'm joining mKhoj, an Indian startup in the "Mobile Advertising marketplace" here at Bangalore. Looks like exciting times ahead.

I was there in the meetup and my feeling was a mix about the same. It was nice to have Kaj here (for the first time) and listen to him about Sun's acquisition. On the other hand it was disheartening to see so few people from corporates turning up. It was almost negligible. I'm still positive on this and do expect many more people to turn up. There were a total of three talks in the meet and then we had some chit chat with people. In his first talk, Kaj first greeted everybody in Hindi, Tamil and Kannada and many were delighted. Kaj touched various aspects of Sun's acquisition and also their on-boarding struggle. He also mentioned about MySQL considering Sun's liberal SCA in place of their stricter CLA. (I haven't gone through SCA to actually comment on it's benefits) Second talk by Thava was  [Read more...]
