Re: Is Drizzle a developers-only project?


I'm more of a user than a developer. Well, definitely not a developer :) Currently though from my perspective since production is still in the future I'm waiting for a production copy to drop before I start trying it out.

With my luck I'll be one of those people who hits a known bug right now. I'd rather not spend time playing with it when it's still a bit too unstable. But the minute it is stable I plan on trying to adopt!

Just to play devil's advocate.  Don't hate me :-)  Drizzle has a great
dev community, but I'm just writing to encourage everyone to reach out
more to users.  For example, at the upcoming MySQL conference, I see a
tutorial "Getting involved in Drizzle Development", and another
"Drizzle Storage Engine Development. Practical Example with BlitzDB".
Both sound wicked cool and interesting to about 10 possible attendees,
9 of whom are already active committers to Drizzle.  Maybe I am
underestimating the interest in developing Drizzle or developing
plugins for it, I don't know.  But I feel that at some point, there
has to be an on-ramp for users, not just developers.
