Product Description

About the Author

Andrew Hutchings has been working in the IT industry almost all his life. He started his development career programming embedded microcontrollers in assembly language for environmental monitoring systems. He then went on to systems administrator for a hosting company, in which he got his first taste for modifying the MySQL source code. Andrew created his own business in development and DBA work, which led him to be employed by Dennis Publishing, a major UK magazine publisher. In this role as Technical Architect he designed and implemented hosting setups, acting as senior developer and DBA. This was to be his first taste of MySQL clusters and led to his development of ndb_watch, a cluster monitoring daemon. After gaining Zend Certified Engineer and Certified MySQL Database Administrator qualifications he gained a position at Sun Microsystems as a MySQL Support Engineer. This involves working daily with the MySQL source code and customer API code to help diagnose and fix issues. He is now a specialist in MySQL Cluster and C APIs. In his spare time Andrew is a community contributor to MySQL with feature patches and bug fixes in both 5.1 and 6.0. He has also contributed to the Drizzle project, a fork of MySQL aimed at having a clean micro-kernel core, committing a significant amount of code to the project. Sergei Golubchik started on modifying MySQL source code in 1998, and has continued doing it as a MySQL AB employee since 2000. Working professionally with the MySQL sources he had a chance to get to know and extend almost every part of the server code - from the SQL core to the utility functions. He was one of the primary architects of the Plugin API. After working for ten years in the ever-growing MySQL AB, and later in Sun Microsystems as a Principal Software Developer, he resigned to join a small startup company that works on MariaDB - an extended version of the MySQL server, where he continues to do what he likes the most - hack on MySQL, architecting and developing the MySQL/MariaDB Plugin API, making it even more powerful, safer, and easier to use. He works and lives in Germany, near Cologne, with his lovely wife and two kids.

Highly recommended. If you want to develop MySQL extensions, buy this book. It's a must, written by two expert professionals who probably know more than anyone else on this matter. The book is full of practical examples explained with the theoretical information necessary to make it stick.

Excellent Aug. 5 2011
By Mark Callaghan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I read this book last year and was impressed. It is written by experts so there is a lot of valuable information. But they also took the time, a huge amount of time, to write this so that it is easy to read. I don't know the editor but will thank him/her as well. [...]
