Drizzle, Japan

When I was in Japan I sat down and spoke with ~40 folks from the Japanese community on Drizzle. Japan easily has more hackers who go into the MySQL code base then any other single country (I am talking about people who hack storage engines/optimizers/etc). There is a lot of good stuff in Japan that just never makes it out of country (I'll blog about two storage engines who came out of Japan in a later blog entry). We have had number of patches that have come from folks in Japan, and I am hoping to see that grow!

Here is a couple of blog entries from folks who went to the meeting :

It seems that they don't really post about it to the wider (non-Japanese) community.

I know there is cool stuff that they are doing, but when I tried before, all the docs were in Japanese and google translate didn't do much. Contrast to other developers, who regardless of their home language, use English to post about their new developments.

Yes, most of it stays in Japanese. My favorite project to mention to folks is Tokyo Cabinet since it is a drop in replacement of BDB under a much more favorable license (oh... and its faster...).
