We are excited to have Gerry Narvaja start today at Tokutek! Gerry has spent more than 25 years in the software industry, most of them working with databases for different kinds of applications, from embedded to large-scale web products. Gerry worked first at MySQL, and then Sun Microsystems supporting the Sales teams. In 2008 he transitioned into being a Senior MySQL DBA. Gerry graduated as an Electronic Engineer from I.T.B.A (Instituto Tecnológico de Buenos Aires) and has an M.B.A. from Universidad del Salvador in collaboration with S.U.N.Y.A (State University of NY at Albany).
Gerry enjoys helping users to solve complex database production issues. For almost a year he has been co-hosting the popular MySQL Community podcast, OurSQL, which was given the MySQL Community Contributor of the Year 2012 award at the recent Percona MySQL Users Conference. Gerry and Martín Farach-Colton, our CTO, will also be speaking next month at the first ever Latin American MySQL / MariaDB Conference in Argentina.
Please feel free to drop Gerry a line at firstname.lastname@example.org with your toughest MySQL and MariaDB issues!
