Another Idea to Help Foster a Vibrant Community: Please make all bugs public

Monday, July 1st, 2013

Since MySQL recently implemented the following feature request (and discussed here and here) to help foster communication among public bugs and feature requests, and to provide a way to allow the Community to voice whether or not a bug affects them, I decided to file another feature request that I think would even further encourage communication amongst an already vibrant community, and that is to simply:

“Please make all bugs public”

http://bugs.mysql.com/bug.php?id=69642

And thanks to the new bugs feature, if you would like to see this implemented as well, please click on the bug link, and then on the “Affects Me” button. Please let your voice be heard. And who knows, perhaps if enough of us would like to see this, then maybe it will happen. :)

[Edit]: I just realized Erkan already filed the same feature request about a week ago. So please give his bug the “Affects Me” click, to let your voice fully be heard. :)

Awesome to see the MySQL Ecosystem Flourishing

Saturday, March 30th, 2013

I just wanted to take a moment and thank, notice, what ever you want to call it, but share some love with all those and all things MySQL.

I read the post Let’s Celebrate MySQL 5.6 GA! – MySQL Community Reception by Oracle by Oracle MySQL Group and it got me to thinking of how proud I am of (and proud to be a part of) the whole MySQL Ecosystem.

We *should* all celebrate MySQL 5.6 GA! I well remember the 3.22 and 3.23 days, and there were many folks before me already using MySQL!!!

I love to see how it has continued to grow, the ecosystem and all things MySQL, that is. MySQL is better than ever. MariaDB is better than ever. Percona Server is better than ever. You have great Support options with MySQL/Oracle, SkySQL/MariaDB, and Percona as well – not to mention numerous others. I just love the fact that everyone is flourishing, and improving, and the technology continues to advance and most importantly, everyone is working together to provide a great software and service to all MySQL/MariaDB/InnoDB/XtraDB/etc-related users out there.

Not to mention the monitoring softwares, the various plugins and connectors, the numerous storage engines, the number of 3rd party apps & helpful scripts, User Conferences, local meet-ups, books, tutorials, the number of Community bloggers who freely and spiritedly share their knowledge, time, advice, ideas, concerns, and so on. It’s just a great Community to be a part of, and I’m thrilled to see how it’s grown, and continues to grow over the years. And that’s just a testament of the quality of all you great people out there involved and helping. :)

I won’t get too mushy, but it is great to see the MySQL Ecosystem and all of those in it flourish, and may it continue for many, many years to come! :)

Big thanks to everyone out there contributing! “It takes a village, and we are that village”, as my wife always says. :)

Congratulations to all of the 2012 Community Contributor Award Winners!

Wednesday, April 18th, 2012

I just wanted to take a moment and say congratulations to all of the 2012 Community Contributor Award Winners!

The usual suspects, Baron, Sarah, Gerardo, and Sheeri, each won, and deservedly so. All 4 contribute a great deal to the MySQL Community and ecosystem, and it is very much appreciated. :)

However, I was especially happy to hear that James Day was also a winner (a name everyone might not be so familiar with). But, having worked with James for 5 years, I really couldn’t say it better than Henrik Ingo already did (in his initial post of this year’s winners), so let me quote him:

“James was nominated for ‘MySQL advocacy and swimming upstream to keep people informed about bugs and other issues.’ When looking into James’ activities in the community, the panel first didn’t find much evidence to support an award. For instance, unlike most winners, he is not a frequent blogger on Planet MySQL. But when digging deeper it became clear that James’ instead is a very active commenter on everyone else’s blogs, contributing in depth additional information to the community dialogue. James therefore is an excellent example of the kind of helpful support person that tirelessly helps everyone he meets in their use of MySQL.”

There is not a single bug comment from James that I don’t appreciate, and he gladly shares his in-depth knowledge, and always has.

So this was definitely great to see, and that award, as were all, were well deserved!

Congratulations, James, Baron, Sarah, Gerardo, and Sheeri!

Happy Birthday MySQL!

Tuesday, January 10th, 2012

I suppose the true birthdate could be debated, but from the *Community* perspective, it can be either the 14 or 11 year birthdate for MySQL!

*Unless* of course you are Monty or David, or one of the internal testers/users, for which May 95 may hold slightly more significance :)

14 Years ago: The Windows [alpha] was released January 8, 1998.

11 Years ago: The first GA version of 3.23 was released in January 2001

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MySQL#Product_history

Note Monty and David first began working on MySQL in 1994, and the first internal release occurred on May 23, 1995. But, since that was all internal, January works for me.

Happy Birthday MySQL!

 

Happy Holidays to the MySQL Ecosystem! :)

Tuesday, December 13th, 2011

Those that know me know I love to send out Christmas/Holiday cards to my colleagues every year. However, with so many colleagues now past and present, and the many friends I’ve made over the years in the MySQL ecosystem, it’s hard to get everyone a card via snail mail (nor do I have everyone’s address), so I wanted to send out a virtual “Happy Holidays!” to all. :)


No, we don’t have children, those gifts are for the family we adopted this year. :D

Wishing you and yours all the best this holiday season! :)
