MySQL Connector/C++ is the latest Connector for MySQL being developed.

I was born in Sofia, Bulgaria in 1980. I graduated both at Technical University-Sofia, Bulgaria with MSc in Computer Engineering, and University of Applied Sciences Stuttgart, Germany with MSc in Software Technology.

I started programming at age of 12, playing with Pascal. My professional carreer started when I was 20. I started at a Web 1.0 oriented company doing development using PHP/MySQL, and later C.

I joined MySQL AB in 2005 after I did my master thesis, Temporal Triggers for MySQL, during my internship at MySQL. I have been involved in QA, Event scheduler implementation (my thesis) which will be available in 5.1, Server bug-fixing and since 2 years part of the connectors team.
