I am the release manager for MariaDB. This is my personal blog, so the things I say here are not necessarily things that they endorse or agree with. They might, but then again they might not.
My first book, Getting Started with MariaDB, was first published in Oct 2013, and a revised and expanded second edition was published in Jun 2015.
My second book, The MariaDB Cookbook, was published in Mar 2014.
I’ve also written numerous articles for the Linux Journal, Tux, Ubuntu User, Linux Pro, and other Linux and technology-oriented magazines.
