A presentation delivering detailed examples of where MySQL has gone wrong in its development of its most powerful resource, the community. Practical examples will be provided including what PostgreSQL is doing today in grass roots efforts to build, solidify, and grow not only its community but its contributor base as well.
Counter points will be provided to show where PostgreSQL has learned from MySQL and is taking what it has learned further, through its worldwide network of supporters.
Specific topics will include:
I am a leading PostgreSQL Contributor and hold the responsibility of PostgreSQL SPI Liaison. Also on the resume is current President of The PostgreSQL Company: Command Prompt, Inc. The largest, oldest and only dedicated PostgreSQL company in North America.
Beyond PostgreSQL my FOSS efforts include being a Director at Software in the Public Interest (of which PostgreSQL.Org is affiliated).
