5th anniversary working for MySQL

On May 17, 2006 – exactly 5 years ago – I started my new job as web developer at MySQL AB.

Since then I closed 3,049 web requests, worked with 9 colleagues in the web team, had 4 direct managers, attended the MySQL User Conference in Santa Clara, CA 4 times (2006-2009, although in 2006 I wasn’t an employee yet, but that was when I got hired, so lets count it) and one all-company meeting in Orlando, FL and went through 2 acquisitions: in 2008 to Sun Microsystems and in 2010 to Oracle.

Time to say thank you to all the great people who I had the pleasure to work with during these 5 years!

  1. Markus,

    Congratulations! I remember when you joined. We were very happy to hire you. Keep up the good work!


  2. Thank you, Marten! This has definitely been the greatest chance of my life — also to extend my scope from local culture to global culture ;).
