A few words about me. I am Baron Schwartz, 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. Please contact me if you would like me to address your organization.

You can contact me like this: SELECT REVERSE( 'moc.brpax@norab'); Please do not ask me about advertising or guest posting on this blog, and please don’t send me solicitations for service provider offerings, outsourcing, etc. I will mark your email as spam.

I also invite you to connect with me on Twitter and LinkedIn.
