I was a leader in the Oracle community who joined MySQL two years ago to learn more about the open source world. The two years at MySQL were fantastic. The extraordinary camaraderie, spirit and energy of the company was unbelievable. I worked with some fantastic people and made a number of life time friends.
On Monday I become a full time employee of Oracle, so I've come full cycle. Everybody is very excited about the incredible potential of Oracle and Sun and what we are going to accomplish together. Oracle employees are enthusiastically welcoming Sun and MySQLers into the Oracle family.
I am really looking forward to continuing my journey.
