Patrick has been working as a QA Engineer in the MySQL world since 2007. In that time, he has worked for MySQL AB, Sun Microsystems, and Oracle.
His work as a member of the Drizzle development team included testing a number of major features for the project's first GA release.
Currently a Sr. QA Engineer at Percona, Patrick continues to hone his skills with various QA tools such as the random query generator, mysql-test-run, and the testing platform he developed for Drizzle (and has since ported to Percona / MySQL servers), dbqp.
