|A few days ago I received an invitation to join the Oracle ACE program, which is a group of strong community enthusiasts and advocate of Oracle products.|
Since I have been a vocal member of the MySQL community for years, I welcome this acknowledgment as well as I appreciated being nominated MySQL Community Contributor of the Year in 2006. Unlike that award, which came from inside the MySQL company, the Oracle ACE nomination came from my peers in the community, to whom I address my thanks and appreciation.
The nomination comes from the community, but the title is granted by the company, as recognition for good work. Therefore, thanks also to my former colleagues at Oracle who have approved my current status.
What you can expect is for me to be my usual self, the guy who is enthusiast about cool technology, no matter where it comes from, and critical or appreciative depending on merit.
Now, back to hacking!
