Hi! I hope you are finding this blog helpful and enjoyable.
A few words about me. I am Baron Schwartz, cofounder of VividCortex and the lead author of High Performance MySQL, among other things. My online nickname Xaprb is my first name typed in QWERTY on a Dvorak keyboard layout.
In addition to my writing, I’ve created quite a bit of open-source software. I speak frequently at industry events, conferences focused on databases, open-source and DevOps, and inside major corporations such as Google. Please contact me if you would like me to address your organization.
You can contact me like this:
