Patrick Galbraith has been involved in MySQL, Linux, and other Open Source (OSS) projects back to the early days of Slackware. He has worked broad spectrum of companies and in a wide array of roles throughout his career, including Slashdot, MySQL, Blue Gecko, Hewlett-Packard, and now Oracle, and contributed to a number of Oper Source projects such as MySQL, Drizzle, DBD::mysql, Kubernetes, Helm charts for MySQL and Galera. In the past decade of his career, Patrick has had a focus on anything related to cloud computing, and in more recent years, containerization with emphasis on Kubernetes; this focus, like all his past endeavors, included participation in the associated OSS communities that continues to this day. Patrick has a keen, and long-standing interest in the effective marriage stateful applications such as databases and Kubernetes with a bent toward MySQL. To this end, Patrick's "MySQL on Kubernetes" demonstration is a deep-rooted passion and desire to promote the use of Kubernetes as a solid platform for databases.
