Jay Pipes, co-author of "Pro MySQL" published by Apress joined MySQL recently as our latest community guy. Jay is an excellent fit for the company. He has a terrific "can do" attitude and has been out writing and blogging about MySQL for ages. Not only is he a MySQL expert, he's also a great speaker and keen to help out on community projects. Soon enough we'll be letting him loose speaking at conferences including our own MySQL Users Conference in April.
