MySQL Consultant, Percona
Software architect Stéphane Combaudon joined Percona in July 2012 after working as a MySQL DBA for leading French companies such as Dailymotion (a video streaming service) and France Telecom. He uses the experience he’s acquired over the past 11 years to not only solve challenges and objectives, but also contribute new and innovating solutions to every project he works on. His constant search for learning new things keeps his skills sharp, knowledge he often shares via the MySQL Performance Blog. A prolific blogger, Stéphane’s posts routinely receive hundreds of Facebook “Likes,” tweets and social shares, mainly because so many readers find them helpful to what they are currently working on as DBAs and developers. That desire to give back to the MySQL community is why he enjoys speaking at conferences around the world, including Fosdem, Froscon and the Percona Live MySQL conferences each year in both London and Santa Clara, Calif. Stéphane, who lives in Paris with his wife and their twin daughters, enjoys spending time with his family when not working. He’s also an avid chess player, participating in several tournaments annually.
