MYSQL Planet now with tags and search
Employee +4 Vote Up -0Vote Down

All this started during a long drive from Charlottesville to Washington, back in November 2008, when I and Dups discussed the status of MySQL Community web presence.

We agreed that we needed to enhance the usefulness of the tools for the community, and MySQL Planet was the first candidate for change. Externally, you have noticed very little until now. First, a login, then the voting system, the Buzz, the Italian, Japanese, and Russian aggregators, an improved treatment for group blogs, and finally the Tags and Searching.

Cleaning up Wordpress comment tables
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down



In Montreal with Dups and Kaj, we were looking at a number of technical problems, and each one of you got something valuable from the meeting.
One of Kaj's problems was a collection of Wordpress blogs infested by spam. Kaj has done something already but the situation was critical. Before applying Akismet to his comments, he needed to cleanup the majority of the spam in same easy way.

It is not rocket science, really, but it needs some care in the implementation.

Freedom to work anywhere
Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

You remember our slogan “Freedom to work anywhere (http://www.mysql.com/about/jobs/" target="_blank)“, meaning that MySQL doesn’t require you to relocate to Uppsala, Cupertino, München or anywhere, to join the company? And that you sometimes can work even far away from home? Sun continued this policy, more or less. Now, Dups is taking the policy to extremes.

Background: As a colleague and fellow mountaineer, I had heard of Dups wanting to do some mountaineering in the Andes well before hearing that he would want to join the Community Team. And hence, it was an easy thing for Dups to convince

Notes of one week with MySQL community in US and France

Background

I wanted to attend the first edition of the Open SQL Camp in Charlottesville, from November 14 to 16. For some mysterious reason, a four days plane ticket to any place in the US costs EUR 2,500, but if I stay 8 days, it costs EUR 800. Considering that I was in Frankfurt until November 8, the most sensible thing to do was flying to the US as early as possible and meet as many communities as I could. Among the ones I asked, Boston and New York answered enthusiastically, and then, serendipitously, I found an unexpected group in Baltimore, just before the last leg to Charlottesville.
I sent all groups a list of ten topics to choose from:
* MySQL 5.1 features
* Using MySQL partitions in practice
* testing with MySQL Sandbox
* MySQL Community How To
* Recent community additions

Now that Dups is the Community Relations Manager for North America, we'll start working together in the most active way. Next week, we'll be busy at meetups in New York and Baltimore, and then it will be full immersion in Charlottesville for the Open SQL Camp.

Meet Dups, our new MySQL Community Manager in North America!

My prayers have been answered.

We have found a worthy replacement for Jay Pipes: Dups.

  • Dups joined MySQL in July 2007.
  • Dups until recently was in the MySQL Web Team, and has joined us now.
  • Dups comes from Canada (Newfoundland).
  • Dups even lives in Canada (Montreal).
  • Dups will roam the North American continent to serve the MySQL community, to learn from it, to explain Sun to the community, and to explain the community to Sun.
  • Dups is sometimes mistaken for Colin Charles, because of similarities in physical appearance.
  • Dups has a somewhat challenging name, Duleepa Wijayawardhana.

I’m very happy we got Dups as our Jay clone, because

Good Luck Jay, Welcome Dups!

Jay Pipes has joined the Drizzle project, and we have been busy looking for a replacement. Cloning Jay Pipes brought serendipitous results. You know that cloning is not an exact science, and we could not get a perfect replica. Perhaps it was a MySQL replication issue. We should try with row-based logging, next time. Anyway, we were looking for a replica of Jay's skillset, and instead we found a match for the kind of enthusiasm that brought Jay to start working for MySQL in 2006 and then to embrace Drizzle this year.

Exit Jay, whom we will miss dearly. He was the first person that I met in the MySQL community who went to work for the company. That's when I started thinking that maybe I could become an
