Product management, effective developers, and the future of MySQL
+6 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I am writing because Sheeri sent me a note about a blog post written by Brian Aker, where Brian concludes, quite correctly, that (in Sheeri’s words not Brian’s)


MySQL is now just a branch (the official branch,
but a branch nonetheless, and a bunch of trademark (logo) and
copyright (docs) ownerships).

This is exactly true. No denying it. Why bother. It’s true. It’s also true for the vast majority of open-source projects, by the way.

I replied to Sheeri:


There's no denying that. The product direction will be set by whoever sets the best product management strategy backed by the most effective development effort. And there can be multiple winners.

MySQL reengineering project
Employee +4 Vote Up -1Vote Down

Here's another chapter of the MySQL evolution saga.

We know that MySQL today, although hugely popular and effective, has many shortcomings. A Refactoring effort has been announced, after a few months of internal discussions.

The effort is open to external contributions. There is a mailing list for discussing the "what" and the "how" of the new path.

The goals of the project are basically

  • Modularity. Make it easier to add new features without breaking existing ones.
  • Pluggability. Make it easier for third parties to add functionality.
  • Maintainability. Make it easier to fix bugs and test, by way of

FOSDEM Sunday 13:15-14:15: Q&A on recent developments at Sun, MySQL Roadmap
Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Given the changes announced this week, I have updated my original plans for my presentation on Sunday. I was going to talk about Social networking, but am now changing it to a very interactive Q&A session.

I expect people are asking themselves

  • What has changed?
  • What will happen now?
  • What are the consequences for the MySQL roadmap?
  • Are there other consequences for the MySQL community?

and I will attempt at answering these questions interactively during FOSDEM.

Since MySQL Proxy 0.7.0 is soon to be released, I thought another brief tutorial would be helpful.

Indeed, we are looking to properly release 0.7.0 soon™.

In case you are wondering what’s happening with MySQL Proxy and what the deal with the code’s new home is, please consider making some time for the web-seminar next week (http://mysql.com/news-and-events/web-seminars/display-277.html).

It’s free but registration is required.

We will also have Carlo Cabanilla talking about
