Ian Gilfillan

Documentation Writer, MariaDB Foundation


Confessing to starting out with BASIC and COBOL, and to a soft spot for Perl, Ian started working with MySQL in 1997, developed the first online grocery store in South Africa (in Perl/MySQL) and wrote the book Mastering MySQL 4, based on his experiences helping to stop a large media company's server's from collapsing under the load all the time. He joined the MariaDB Foundation in 2013, and assists with their documentation efforts.
