Welcome all to 2016.
Just a quick update to say that I'm moving teams inside Oracle. My new position is as Product Manager for the MySQL Server This is a great opportunity for me to be more directly involved in developing MySQL, and something I'm very much looking forward to. It will also mean many of my future blog posts will appear on the MySQL Server Team blog instead of here on my personal blog.
(The MySQL Community Team is now looking to fill a vacancy. The ideal candidate will be based in Europe. Please let me know if you are interested. I'll put you in touch!)
The second part to this update is to say that I'll be touring Europe for almost all of February. You can catch me in Brussels, Amsterdam, Helsinki, Munich, Berlin, Madrid, Paris, Dublin, Manchester & London. Please check out the announcement blog post for more details!
