Brian Miezejewski
Principal Consultant, MySQL

Brian is a manager in MySQL professional services that still finds time to deliver services to MySQL clients. He currently leads the MySQL PS storage engine and migration practices. He has over 25 years of experience in database design, engineering and usage.

His experience includes:

  • lead architect for the ZFour database system,
  • Senior Principal Architect for the American Airlines enterprise data warehouse,
  • and Director of database systems for Travelweb.com.

While he claims to be mainly a C++/OO architect and developer he has also found time to build several data warehouses up to 12TB in size, design large scale Java/XML based web systems, and work with many of MySQL’s largest users. He has designed, built, and managed database systems on MySQL, Oracle, MS SQL, Informix, and a few other databases nobody remembers anymore. Brian’s hobby is ping pong and trying to grok why Object Relational Databases were never successful.
