Website

Monty Taylor is an Engineer for Sun. He’s the crazy guy who wrote the NDB/Bindings in the first place (why write one language when you can have six?) and is currently one of the crazy guys hacking on Drizzle full time. Up until a few days ago, he was also a Senior Consultant for MySQL, where he focused on MySQL Cluster, DRBD and other High Availability solutions.

Monty is a Python programmer by first choice (and yet he hears the obvious joke surprisingly infrequently) but seems to be spending all of his time recently in C, C++ and Java.

The result is that a cluster can be accessed just as any other MySQL database or directly with the native NDB API. This session will cover application development with MySQL Cluster and Java using NDB/J. Read more.

Every database conference has to have some sort of loon standing up telling everyone that the main thing everyone has that ties them all together is total crap. This time, I'd like that loon to be me! So bring rotten fruits to throw. Read more.
