Present and future MySQL

An almost too-crowded schedule. Yesterday morning, the founders of MySQL, and I have posted more fully about their talks elsewhere on the site - here and here. In the afternoon, a talk by Brian Aker who's their director of architecture, which I found a useful approach to some other aspects of MySQL, such as release policy, numbering and naming, selecting your table type in MySQL, and replication / cluster. Also looking forward to the MySQL Administrator becoming more mainstream.

As you would expect from a piece of software that has sprung from no-where in the past few years to its now dominant position, there are some very bright people at the top. I'm also impressed by how they come across as human beings, and how they have a strategy and philosophy that drives them and their product forward. Seems to me that MySQL is already an excellent RDBMS system, and will continue to be so into the future with far fewer twists and turns than we would expect from an average product.

[This post and others on this board are held in a MySQL database that's maintained by a Perl program. Displays at http://www.wellho.net/horse are maintained in Perl, and pages at
http://www.wellho.net/net/mouth.html in PHP.
