The MySQL Community offers a great example of various forks and branches, with MariaDB being the most well-known fork, and companies like Percona, Facebook and Alibaba maintaining their own branches.

In this presentation we will look at the history of MySQL, the causes of MySQL forking and branching, and discuss the benefits and drawbacks of both approaches, using specific examples from the MySQL ecosystem.
