It’s that time of year again, and we’ve just had the presentations of the MySQL Community Awards at Percona Live. A more fulsome blog post will be written for the Community Blog in the next few days about the worthy winners. Meanwhile, though, here’s a summary.
Committee Co-Secretaries Emily Slocombe of Square, and Agustin Gallego of Percona presented these annual community nominated awards today. In four categories, the awards went to:
- Community Contributor of the Year: Weixiang Zhai
- Community Contributor of the Year: Valerii Kravchuk
Both of these awards were made for bug identification and submission. Valerii was represented by Vicențiu Ciorbaru of MariaDB Foundation who accepted the award on his behalf.
- The Application of the Year award was mad to Dbdeployer, for its incredible usefulness to the community of MySQL users. In this case, Giuseppe Maxia – the Data Charmer – could not attend the conference, so Oracle Community Manager, LeFred, donned a Dbdeployer shirt to accept the award on his behalf.
Last but not least:
- Corporate Contributor of the Year was Tencent, and the award received by two representatives pictured here. In this case my journalistic abilities have let me down and I will update this post REALLY soon with the names of those accepting the award, but they are nevertheless pictured here.
Congratulations to all!
