Percona welcomes Devananda van der Veen

 | October 14, 2009 |  Posted In: Events and Announcements, MySQL


On the heels of our earlier announcement of Fernando and Yves, I’m happy to welcome Devananda van der Veen to our team.

Devananda, also known as Deva, is a talented, detail-oriented MySQL expert and systems administrator. His previous job was at Hydra, an advertising network, where he was sole DBA and half of the systems and network engineering team. Deva likes to automate: he wrote the mycat MySQL administration tools, and he knows how to administer lots of servers simultaneously. He is active in open-source software development, and very excited about Drizzle.

Deva lives with his wife and dogs on Washington’s beautiful Olympic Peninsula, far from noise, pollution, and crowds.

Welcome, Deva!

  • This is awesome for Deva. I had the pleasure of working with him for more than three years and was always impressed by the breadth of his knowledge and his ability to keep track of every little detail.
