Patrick Galbraith named Oracle ACE!

A big congratulations to our very own Patrick Galbraith, who has just been recognized as an Oracle Ace for MySQL!  In addition to being an absolute MySQL rock star, in his “spare time” he maintains DBD::mysql, DBD::drizzle, FederatedX storage engine and the Memcached Functions for MySQL. He has just authored “Developing Web Applications using Perl, Memcached, MySQL, and Apache”.

Patrick joined Blue Gecko in 2010 and has been nothing short of spectacular, navigating customers through an unbelievably varied word of LAMP challenges that go far beyond even the most liberal definitions of “remote DBA.”  one of the most truly service-oriented technical people I’ve had the privilege of working with and just a cool guy to meet, the award couldn’t be more well-deserved.

Congrats again, Patrick!!
