Last time I interviewed Zack it was the day that MySQL officially became a part of Sun Microsystems and it was over the phone. Last week however we were both at the MySQL conference and got meet face to face. Here is the resulting interview, enjoy!
Zack's the one in the middle.
Some of the topics we tackle:
- Exceeding expectations at the MySQL conference
- The availability of MySQL's 5.1 later this quarter and all the cool new features
- The GA of Workbench - a modeling tool for DBAs
- The morning's keynotes (here is the video Zack shot)
- The challenges that Werner Vogels, Amazon's CTO, faces
- Sun's performance tuning team and how it helps MySQL shine
- Zack's impressions of his first six weeks at Sun
