As of November 2011 I’ll be working full-time on MySQL Connector/Python and other goodies within the MySQL development team at Oracle. Before, this was more or less a pet project done after working hours. However, with the birth of our son Tomas more than a year ago, I’ve been slacking and family got priority.
The idea is to make MySQL Connector/Python the best choice for connecting to MySQL from within your Python code. We still got a long road ahead of us, but I’m confident that we are on the right track.
