MySQL Conf08 - Erica Brescia, CEO BitRock
By barton808 on Apr 28, 2008
Last but not least in my series of podcasts from this year's My SQL Conference and Expo, is my conversation with Erica Brescia, CEO of BitRock. BitRock is the company behind BitNami and InstallBuilder and counts as its clients companies like MySQL, JasperSoft, KnowledgeTree, SugarCRM...
Erica, still standing and smiling at 9PM.
Some of the topics we tackle:
- Providing the packaging services of a lot of the commercial Open Source companies like MySQL, JasperSoft, KnowledgeTree, SugarCRM...
- Creating BitNami a site that provides access to easy to access/install stacks of Open Source software for Linux, Window, OS X and Solaris.
- Surviving without venture funding.
- What its like running a company thats located in Seville, Spain and how the location draws a lot of great European developers.
- Erica's priorities for the next year: building out the engineering team, getting the word out about BitNami and building a community around it.
