Joining Peter for MySQL Consulting

 | September 4, 2006 |  Posted In: Events and Announcements


Starting September I’m leaving MySQL to partner with Peter on practice as well as work with him on some Web projects.

I really enjoyed working under Peter’s guidance while working for MySQL and it is great we now can work together as a partners. I thanks MySQL for two great years I had.

I also hopefully will have more time to work Open Source projects. I have number of ideas in mind which we’ll now have time to implement. I’m going to implement and adapat several patches that improve MySQL usabalitity and performance.

Finally I will continue work on MySQL and LAMP Performance analyzes and benchmarks. We need to know how MySQL performs on different platforms and where bottlenecks are to be able to offer leading experience in MySQL Performance Optimization.
If you have some wishes what you’d want to see in benchmarks just let me know.
