MySQL Forge allows members to share articles and tutorials through the site's wiki, post and maintain projects in its directory, and offer sample code snippets in its repository.
MySQL AB on Thursday unveiled a community site for users and developers to discuss, collaborate on and share code and applications for the company's namesake open-source database.
MySQL Forge gives members the opportunity to share articles and tutorials through the site's wiki, to post and maintain projects in its directory, and to offer sample code snippets in its repository.
"The foundation of the open source development model is the rapid creation and sharing of different solutions within an open, collaborative environment," Kaj Arno, vice president of community relations for the Swedish firm, said in a statement. "Built for the community and grown by the community, we anticipate that MySQL Forge will become a significant resource for MySQL-related development, providing value to developers and building a stronger network between developers and users."
In addition, the company unveiled support within MySQL for Ubuntu, a version of the Linux operating system. At the MySQL Users Conference in Santa Clara, Calif., officials outlined the new partnership and technology collaboration between the Ubuntu project, sponsored by Canonical Ltd., and MySQL AB.
The MySQL database is often used in open source versions of business intelligence applications.
