On behalf of myself and the MySQL Engineering team, I’d like to thank everyone for naming Oracle the Corporate Contributor of the year at the MySQL Community awards ceremony at Percona Live 2014.
I’d also like to thank everyone who have come up to me and my fellow colleagues in person to thank us for the great work they have seen in MySQL 5.6 as well as 5.7. I only wish that more people in the MySQL Engineering team would be able to share that experience.
Therefore I cannot stress enough how important it is for my team to hear such positive feedback through talks, blogs, and tweets. Thank you for doing so, and please continue sharing your positive experience with MySQL openly. Why not read about the latest mysql engineering work and leave a comment on mysqlserverteam.com, it is a huge motivator.
