Roland has been a powerful component in MySQL community. Before joining the company, he was one of the most active bloggers and a frequent forum participant. Within the company, he has achieved several important goals, the most prominent of which is a book on MySQL Cluster, a training course and two certification exams.
Even without these tangible accomplishments, Roland's contribution to MySQL has been extremely valuable. He has continued writing blog posts, articles, and contributing to forums. And he has been constantly present in the internal discussions, always providing a fresh view on many debates.
Roland, you will be dearly missed. The only consolation is that you will stay in the MySQL ecosystem and continue contributing to our community.
All the best in your new career!
