In October 2003, Mick Carney (the first MySQLer in Sales in France) convinced us to choose VÃƒÂ©ronique Loquet and her company Al'x Communication as MySQL's French PR agency.
And what an excellent choice it was! VÃƒÂ©ronique and her Paris team have been with us now for nearly five years. Her contacts are excellent, as are her organising skills. She practically embodies PR for les logiciels libres (Free and Open Source Software) in France.
VÃƒÂ©ronique has visited the MySQL Users Conference in Santa Clara several times, and of course introduced us to numerous French journalists, fixing plenty of meetings for MÃƒÂ¥rten, Zack, myself and others.
Being acquired by Sun Microsystems does have many more ups than it has downs, but one of the big downs is that we won't be working with VÃƒÂ©ronique any longer.
Merci, VÃƒÂ©ronique! Tu vas nous manquer.
