Andrew Hutchings
Chief Contributions Officer, MariaDB Corporation

Andrew has a long history in the open source database world but has occasionally dipped into other technology industries, whilst keeping to his open source routes. He brings all of this experience to the MariaDB Foundation, where he works on making the contributions process as smooth as possible.

On the personal side of things, Andrew lives with his family in the UK countryside. In his spare time he restores and designs new hardware for retro computers such as the Commodore Amiga.
