The phpMyAdmin development team has been organized on SourceForge.net since its start in 2001. They are responsible for the development of phpMyAdmin and represent it at various conferences. You can find more about the project and its history on this separate page.
Marc started contributing to phpMyAdmin in 1998. He then took over the project from founder Tobias Ratschiller and started a new era of phpMyAdmin together with Olivier Müller and Loïc Chapeaux in 2001.
He is currently the project administrator and he has contributed the largest amount of code to the project. He lives in Sherbrooke, a city in the Québec province of Canada.
Michal made his first contribution to phpMyAdmin in 2001 by updating the Czech translation. Later he contributed charset conversion code and improved export and import handling to support plugins.
He currently maintains the project web site, demo server, wiki and other useful services. He lives in Prague, Czech Republic.
Dieter joined the development team in March 2010, and so far has
contributed to the project by submitting bug fixes
and by further updating the Dutch translation of phpMyAdmin.
In 2011, he was a Google Summer of Code mentor for the first time.
He currently lives in Gent, Belgium.
Madhura joined the phpMyAdmin in early 2011 and continues to contribute by fixing bugs and translating phpMyAdmin to his native language, Sinhala. He also took part in GSoC 2011 to implement GIS support for phpMyAdmin.
He lives in Colombo, Sri Lanka.
Rouslan has joined the team in June 2011 after being selected to take part in the Google Summer of Code program where he developed an improved interface for the management of routines, triggers and events.
He lives in Cork, Ireland.
J.M. is a wheelchair-brain, always on the run to learn and program new things, without spending much money because the best things are what you get without money (pma). Since his brain is big and fast enough, he can learn everything on his own. He likes being creative, finding, eliminating and patching bugs. For the case his idea doesn't live yet, he'll invent it.
He lives in Germany.
We would like to meet other members of the team more often; so far only a few team meetings in real life have happened.
The first one was at a big party in Karlsruhe, Germany for the 10th anniversary of PHP and MySQL at the LinuxTag 2005 LAMP Area, with some special guests.
The second meeting took place in Brussels, Belgium during FOSDEM 2010. Marc Delisle talked about "State of phpMyAdmin" in the MySQL developer room.
The third meeting took place in Brussels, Belgium during FOSDEM 2012. The team talked about future directions for the project.
We'd like to thank all the former developers and contributors, whom over the years have contributed to the success of phpMyAdmin. A full list is maintained in the documentation.
