Quick notes: Monty Program Group Blog; Rename Maria

A couple of things:

  1. There is now a Monty Program Group Blog. Its brand new, and in a company where most people spend time on writing tonnes of code, expect posts to be sporadic, but of great technical nature. We’ll also cover things like events, conferences, etc. i.e. where can you meet a Monty Program person. Do subscribe to our RSS or ATOM feed.
  2. At the MySQL Conference recently, Monty announced the rename the Maria engine contest. The competition is still running, and the winner gets a System76 Meerkat NetTop. Some interesting names have already shown up. Monty says, “Make it tell a story”.
