Oracle Graduates See First Hand MySQL Technology


MYSQL COMMUNITY EVENT @ ORACLE
STUDENT EXPERIENCE

MySQL- the world’s most popular Open Source database had just recently concluded a community event recently in India; an event open to anyone and everyone who uses or works on the MySQL platform. This was a great opportunity for us to meet with our new campus hires and give them a feel of their soon to be workplace. 

They have shared some of their thoughts post the event. Hope you enjoy reading.

I was instantly excited when I received an invite to a MySQL Community Event happening in Bangalore. I took it as a great opportunity to learn about the MySQL platform and also connect with the MySQL team and its new recruits. The event kicked off with the introduction of various teams within MySQL and their respective role in the development of the MySQL platform. I was thrilled to see a sense of passion everyone had in contributing towards the world’s most popular Open Source Database.

There was a very good mix of people at the meet which included MySQL developers, freelancers, users and even competitors. The director of MySQL India, Mr. Sanjay Manwani presented a general overview about MySQL, its new feature and technological innovations. He focused upon the recent MySQL 5.6 release as many in the audience were excited about it. I learnt a lot of new things about MySQL throughout the presentation. The Q/A session although highly technical, was very thought provoking and enjoyable.
This was followed by a networking session over high tea which I found to be most satisfying. It was nice to personally interact with the MySQL team as everyone was extremely welcoming and friendly. I also had a chance to meet a few alumni from my Alma mater BITS Pilani who were with MySQL. 
A developer community event like this gives developers and users a chance to interact with each other, share ideas and be up to date with what’s new. Being the first I’ve attended, I thoroughly enjoyed it and look forward to its next event.

The MYSQL user camp was much above my expectations.
I was very excited to know that behind the success of every MySQL product there is a combined effort of several hardworking engineers from teams like MySQL server, MySQL runtime and so on. I was intrigued with the new features of MySQL 5.6 like file sort optimization, innodb improvements, multi-threaded slaves and replication checksum and this caught my attention. The presentation given by Mr. Sanjay Manwani about MySQL 5.6 was like a cherry on the cake.
Finally the tea-time interaction with the team members and managers was the best part of the whole evening. The MySQL team members made me feel so comfortable that I felt like I am attending a “family get together” rather than an event. I am very grateful to the MySQL and Oracle community for giving an opportunity to participate in that great event and I am feeling very proud that I will be part of Oracle family soon.

Twas' a great feeling being amongst the MySQL developers at the Oracle office. This was my very first experience attending a MySQL meet in Bangalore and I was over excited.
The talk by Sanjay Sir was really good and helped us know every small detail of MySQL 5.6- the team and technology that I will soon be part of. 
The tea after the presentation was interactive and helpful. I had the opportunity to meet managers of the various MySQL teams and know exactly about the technologies they were working on. 
With only 60 members in the team we got to speak and interact with almost everyone including Sanjay Sir and also our future colleagues (other new hires).
Overall it was a great experience of interaction, learning and a lot of fun!
Looking forward to more such events from the MySQL community
