Now a Database Architect at Twitter

Just a small announcement:

Starting today, I am now “MySQL Database Architect” at Twitter, where I am joining some old friends on the small but hard-working DBA and operations teams there. I’ll be working to help debug, support, and scale the MySQL databases, of course, and who knows what else. I’m looking forward to the challenges and fast paced operations again. I’m also looking forward to writing a lot more on this blog about MySQL. I’ve had a Twitter account for a long time, but I suppose I’ll write a lot more on it now:

Since I will now be commuting from Sunnyvale to San Francisco nearly daily, I think my old “Commuting” category will get more of a work-out too.

  2. yeah, make us proud!

    Is this purely a DBA role, or will we see a “Twitter patch” of MySQL? After all, you are the only “community contributor” to MySQL 5.0, there is some history to live up to.

What do you think?
