Forking or Branching – Lessons from the MySQL Community


Please watch Percona’s CEO, Peter Zaitsev as he presents Forking or Branching – Lessons from the MySQL Community.

The MySQL Community offers a great example of various forks and branches, with MariaDB being the most well-known fork, and companies like Percona, Facebook and Alibaba maintaining their own branches.

In this presentation we will look at the history of MySQL, what are the causes of MySQL forking and branching as well as discuss the benefits and drawbacks of both approaches, using specific examples from the MySQL ecosystem.
