Today was my last day working for MySQL/Oracle. I’ve really enjoyed my time here and it’s difficult to leave behind such great people and technology. Having said that, after 6.5 years it feels like the right time to move onto new challenges.

Tomorrow I start working for MongoDB in their product marketing team.

In terms of this blog, I plan to keep all of the existing content live but if you’ve questions on MySQL then you’ll likely get a faster/better response if you do directly to the MySQL forums. It’s unlikely that I’ll be posting new MySQL articles here but if you’re curious about MongoDB then it might be worth hanging around.

Best Regards, Andrew.
