- With the help of Patrick Crews and Andrew Hutchings, and building on the work of Jay Pipes, I managed to implement a pretty solid replication solution in Drizzle and made the slave plugin available.
- Implemented multi-source replication (more accurate name than multi-master) in Drizzle.
- I ventured into new territory by giving my first-ever presentation at the MySQL User Conference in Santa Clara, CA.
- Rackspace made life interesting and forced me find another position. I joined a local startup company as their first real hire. Two of the founders are former coworkers and current friends of mine, and the timing worked out well for all parties.
- For my new job, I had to learn Python, GIT, and how to work with AWS systems. Python rocks. I feel like I can fly now.
- Lost 20 lbs! Woohoo!
I don't know what 2012 has in store for me, but hopefully it is just as exciting. I hope everyone has a Happy New Year.
