Speaking in April 2016

I have a few speaking engagements coming up in April 2016, and I hope to see you at some of these events. I’m always available to talk shop (opensource, MariaDB Server, MySQL, etc.) so looking forward to saying hi.

  • A short talk at the MariaDB Berlin Meetup on April 12 2016 – this should be fun if you’re in Berlin as you’ll see many people from the MariaDB Server and MariaDB MaxScale world talk about what they’re doing for the next releases.
  • rootconf.in – April 14-15 2016, tutorial day on 16 – I’ve not been to India since about 2011, so I’m looking forward to this trip to Bangalore (and my first time to a HasGeek event). Getting the email from the conference chair was very nice, and I believe I’m giving a keynote and a tutorial.

Report : Bangalore MySQL User Camp (BMUC) 22 Mar

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 to all the attendees, and organizers. Hope to see you in person again in 3 months …

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.

MySQL camp with Kaj (29th july)

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 on how to contribute code to …

MySQL Camp in Bangalore

In Bangalore, India? Definitely go there, to the MS Ramaiah Institute of Technology, on the 29 of July 2008, from 4-7pm (no, not Indian Standard Time ;)), and listen to Kaj Arno speak about MySQL.


We’re on the front page of Sun Microsystems .in

In addition to Kaj, Thava Alagu will speak about contributing code to MySQL, and Sonali Minocha (from OSSCube) will speak on optimising enterprise applications.

There is also hope that this will be a regular meetup, aka the Bangalore MySQL User Group. Amit Saha has an entry on MySQL Camp (which …
