Always. Luckily I'm not the only MySQL professional in my organisation but in many places that is true. We're spinning this meetup for those that need to release their inner passion for MySQL goodness!
As mentioned previously we're the stewards of many different flavours. From Oracle to Percona, 5.0 to 5.6 and all in between! Enjoying the eclectic environments.
Mainly administering but when requirements entail some scripting or procs then the coder hat can be dug out.
We see many HA solutions such as Linux-HA, DRBD, MHA. There's also some Percona XtraDB Cluster around. We're now also supporting some MongoDB environments.
They're both giant! (although I confess to using a Mac for daily work)
I'm Andrew Moore, a MySQL DBA working for Percona. I've been working with a broad range of MySQL forks, versions, environments and strive to become a more informed InnoDB and HA professional.
