MySQL Community Manager, Oracle
Morgan rejoined the MySQL team at Oracle in 2013 as MySQL Community Manager, having previously worked for MySQL and Sun Microsystems. He blogs from tocker.ca, and especially likes new features that make operations life easier.
For MySQL 5.7, one of the engineering goals is to continue to clean up and simplify code, and improve the architecture of the MySQL Server. As part of this spring cleaning process, some features in MySQL 5.7 have a change in behaviour; for example the EXPLAIN PARTITIONS and EXPLAIN EXTENDED syntax will be enabled by default.
