This was a fascinating keynote - I loved seeing the personal history of something that I use every day and can sometimes take for granted.

Great talk and really helped me see the benefits of moving to MariaDB. Wish there hadn't been as much echo though, as with all the keynotes it was hard to hear parts due to the it.

Enjoyed this trip down MySQL memory lane, and learning about the inception of Maria DB. Monty is an interesting character and clearly passionate about his project. There humorously seems to be no love lost from Monty for Oracle - good, engaging talk. Thank you!
