Interview with Tomas Ulin at the MySQL Innovation Day

MySQL Innovation Day held on June 5, 2012 was a great event for the MySQL engineers, users and customers to gather, share and network. I was able to get a few minutes with Tomas Ulin, Vice President of MySQL Engineering at Oracle, to ask him some questions. Here are the highlights of my interview with Tomas.

Monica: This was the first MySQL Innovation Day, correct?  Why now, what was the strategy behind hosting this kind of event?

Tomas: In the last year, we have rolled out an incredible number of MySQL events worldwide – some targeted at developers that are new to MySQL and others for the MySQL savvy. At the MySQL Innovation Day, our first event of this kind,, we had a number of our key engineers presenting lightning talks delivering previews of key new features as well as discussing roadmap. …

OTN Developer Day: MySQL is Coming to Washington, DC

We organized our first OTN Developer Day: MySQL earlier this year in Santa Clara, CA, and the result far exceeded our expectation. Before we kicked off the seminar at 9am, the attendees had already taken every single seat in the beautiful auditorium in Oracle's Santa Clara campus, and there was still a line in front of the registration desk. We recruited MySQL experts from several teams to present, and had great questions and discussions along the way and at the end. I personally received many positive comments saying that the seminar …

A guide to The 451 Group’s open source software coverage

Regular visitors to the 451 CAOS Theory blog will be well aware of The 451 Group’s CAOS (Commercial Adoption of Open Source) research service and our CAOS long-form reports.

The company’s core services are 451 Market Insight Service, which delivers daily insight into emerging enterprise IT markets, and 451 TechDealmaker, a forward-looking weekly …

Sun Tech Day in Cagliari

Five years after coming back to Italy from abroad, I am about to hold the first official work-related event in my hometown of Cagliari, Sardinia. Since 2003, I have been on the podium many times, but each presentation meant a flight across the sea.

Thanks to Sun's Tech Days initiative, the University of Cagliari is hosting an event where Sun employees and well known community members will talk about top notch technology.

The agenda covers Open Solaris and ZFS, Sun SPOTS, Java and Spring, creative MySQL programming. The university will present a quality assurance project applied to Java.

Give it Back.

As you know, Sun's open source software and microprocessor strategy has been, at times controversial. We've filled trade journals and chat rooms with all kinds of dialog and the occasional crackpot conspiracy theory.

As many have rightly assumed from the outset, that controversy was, in fact, not a byproduct of the strategy - it was the strategy: if you're talking about Sun, you're not talking about the other guy. And then you'll buy a datacenter.

But now that we've firmly established our reputation for open source leadership, I'm very worried there's no more controversy to be had. There's too much trust in the system, and too much clarity around our strategic intent. So it's getting tougher and tougher to kick up a storm - and we can't very well spend a billion dollars or change our ticker symbol every time we want to generate a headline. Now can …
