MySQL Hall of Fame

 

This page has moved to: https://mysqlawards.org/mysql-hall-of-fame/

 

This page is a permanent home for listing all winners of MySQL Community, Partner and Application awards. It includes both the 2005-2009 awards chosen by MySQL AB marketing, as well as the 2010- awards chosen by a community panel.

Trivia: Rasmus Lerdorf, creator of PHP and inventor of the SQL LIMIT clause is a winner of this award.

In addition a special "Acquirer of the Year" award, consisting of a very large bottle of Absolut Vodka, was given out in 2008 to Sun / Jonathan Schwartz and in 2009 to Oracle / Ken Jacobs (that had acquired Sun only 24 hours earlier).

The winners have been selected by MySQL AB / Sun Microsystems personnel until 2009, and by an independent community panel after that. For obvious reasons the community panel does not award a "Partner of the Year" but instead a "Corporate Contributor" category was created to award entities that sponsor or contribute to the MySQL community in significant ways. In a sense, they are "partners" of the MySQL community?

In 2013 the community panel broke from the established pattern and awarded a "Storage Engine of the Year" goblet to NDB (aka MySQL Cluster). However, in 2014 this new category was not present again, making it - so far - a one time exception.

The original MySQL AB awards were glass globes with a dolphin engraving:

Since the community panel took over in 2010, the awards became pewter goblets:
