About me

Location Bangalore, Karnataka, India
Introduction I am Narayanan Venkateswaran (mostly referred to as VN :) ) and work at Oracle in the MySQL team. This is a great place to be and I love every moment of my work on this great product. I have brilliant colleagues and a fantastic work environment. I am surrounded by really knowledgeable people, who I looked up to, most of them PhDs in the Database field. I am blessed to learn from the Gods :). I am a committer in the Apache community and have worked in Microsoft and Amazon in a past life. My interests lie in High Availability, Horizontal Scaling, Distributed Systems, Distributed Consensus, Leader Election etc. I love spending time with my family and in my free time I read research papers and code.
