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 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. During his tenure in Hewlett-Packard's Advanced Technology Group (ATG) for Cloud and Open Source, Patrick had a focus on containerization with emphasis on Kubernetes; this focus, like all ATG 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 databases and Kubernetes with a bent toward MySQL. To this end, Patrick's "MySQL on Kubernetes" demonstration is a deep-rooted passion of his.
