Hotsos Symposium 2010 — Battle Against Any Guess Is Won

What’s unusual about this session is that it’s not some technical stuff that I usually do but a more conceptual and motivational talk. Could I pull it off? Well, I think it went fairly well in general even though I did identify few rough places and my lack of English language mastering. Might need to work a little bit more on the flow of the presentation. We had quite a few good laughs. Later, people in the next hall were asking about it and Dan was making the jokes on the stage so it must have been loud. Anyway, I think nobody fell asleep and I managed to get people thinking about the topic. I received many “thank you” notes yesterday and compliments on a good session so by the end of the day I was more and more pleased. Thanks everyone for attending and especially big thanks to those of you who brought to my attention examples from their own battles. If you have more to discuss — contact me by email (my last name) {at} pythian.com.

Product management, effective developers, and the future of MySQL

Here’s the future of MySQL, Drizzle, Monty Program, the Percona fork, etc. The best product management strategies… should we be lightweight for the web, plug-in oriented like Drizzle? Should we follow Monty’s giant-killing roadmap? Should we focus on performance-oriented patches? The best product management strategies will win. They can’t win alone. Will they be backed by appropriate investments from effective developers? Effective developers are the ones who convert winning product management strategies into working products. You can’t get there without them and I’ve seen lots of great strategies fail that test (including my own actually). And there can be more than one winner.
