Twitter bug found!

Some days ago while I’m looking for what are saying about a mysql.com server down I found a twitter bug:

Is not a big deal, to repeat this bug you must follow these steps:

1. Find any term, in this case “mysql.com” then in results looking for a word that have the search term as a part of them (ex dev.mysql.com) and select the a part or entire word:

2. Press Ctrl + C,  some HTML codes appear from nowhere:

3. Do it again and again, you will see an

Rewind 2011 & Happy New Year 2012
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Firstly I want to say sorry to my blog readers because I didn’t publish much article about facebook app development in 2011. Because I was very busy for my job, life and honestly said I was not an active facebook web developer in 2011. In computer science algorithm and data structure subject we learned “Time space trade off”. That means if you need faster solution you’ve to use more space and vice versa. This is happened in our life also. If you invest some time in a work you definitely have to  leave some time in other works.

What have I been up to lately?
Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Despite my best intentions, I haven't posted on this blog for a while, which is a shame! I've become busy writing on so many other places since I moved into my new role in the Oracle Linux product management team in April. I've learned a lot and I am feeling quite at home here! The team is excellent and very nice to work with — I am slowly getting the "Big Picture".

But even though I've been neglecting this blog, there are a lot of things that are publicly visible and document some of my activites:

Beginning of my career
+0 Vote Up -1Vote Down

After long days I’m writing this post. Though my blog is very popular for facebook related tutorials, but this is not anything related to facebook or php. This is about me and beginning of my career.

I think every programmer should learn different languages and work in different platforms. You can ask me why? If you work on PHP backend development for 5 years, you will become an experienced guy and will earn better income.

So why you’ll invest your time for other language and other platform?
Because it will give you a good taste of programming and you’ll enjoy yourself. I’m not telling you to leave PHP development and move to other platform, I’m just telling you to make some extra time from

Trocha otevřenosti od SOZA

Pro ty co nesledují dění na internetu pozorně, lehká rekapitulace. SOZA z nadpisu a zbytku postu je Slovenský Ochranný Zvaz Autorský, obdoba českého OSA. Poslední dobou se na Slovensku množily případy, kdy se SOZA domáhala výpalného za embedded youtube videa. Pokuta kterou SOZA vyhrožovala činila 99.60 Eur. SOZA nabídla způsob jak se pokutě vyhnout. Stačí si zakoupit licenci za 16.60 Euro do 50 hodin záznamu nebo za 33.20 Euro nad 50 hodin. Taky vás zaujalo, jak přesně to výpalné má SOZA spočítané? Na desítky centů. Aspoň to budí

Back in Linux land
Employee +2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

It's been a while since my last post on this blog; I definitely need to get back into the habit! One of the reasons for my radio silence was that I switched roles here at Oracle. After having been with the MySQL team for 9 years, I felt it was time for a change. Fortunately I did not have to look far – I'm now a member of the Oracle Linux product management team and I am having a lot of fun there.

However, I realized that while I was an active Linux user on the desktop, quite a lot has happened on the enterprise and data center side of things. Linux has really come a long way and I am glad to be back in this field, drinking from the firehose and learning a lot about recent developments and technologies. For me, this is kind of going "back to my roots", as I have been deeply involved with Linux at SuSE before I joined MySQL in

5th anniversary working for MySQL
Employee +4 Vote Up -0Vote Down

On May 17, 2006 – exactly 5 years ago – I started my new job as web developer at MySQL (http://www.mysql.com) AB.

Since then I closed 3,049 web requests, worked with 9 colleagues in the web team, had 4 direct managers, attended the MySQL User Conference in Santa Clara, CA 4 times (2006-2009, although in 2006 I wasn’t an employee yet, but that was when I got hired, so lets count it) and one all-company meeting in Orlando, FL and went through 2 acquisitions: in 2008 to Sun Microsystems and in 2010 to Oracle.

Time to say thank you to all the great people who I had the pleasure to work with during these 5 years!

Reflections on MySQL conference - Part III: My own activities

To round off my memoirs from the MySQL conference 2011, I'll just write down for the historical record my own activities.

MySQL awards

With the community picking up tasks that used to be handled by MySQL AB, it somehow has fallen on my lap to drive the selection of winners for the annual MySQL awards. This was the second year we did it and we have settled on a format where the winners are chosen by a community panel consisting of 2 previous years winners, plus the conference chair(s). I think having the community nominating and voting the winners have brought forward some truly deserving and sometimes also surprising winners, and it has been a pleasure to be involved in this process. I feel privileged to be part of a process channeling so much goodwill and respect from the MySQL community to the winners.

This year's winners were

Back to work: 1st week as Senior Performance Architect at Nokia

As some Facebook friends already guessed from my status updates this week, my 9 month paternity leave is now over and I've survived my first week back in work life, waking up at seven in the morning! This is just a personal-life blog post to let everyone know what I'm up to, (For those asking: Ebba is doing fine, she recently started to stand up and even takes steps if I hold her hands.)

During the past months I had many interesting conversations and ideas of what to do next, but in the end Nokia was the company standing out with a very interesting offer. So as of last Tuesday I work at Nokia as Senior Performance Architect in the Mobile Solutions division, better known as the Nokia Ovi web services.

Reading from MongoDB
+1 Vote Up -2Vote Down

Hi Folks,

Now that we’re blogging again I thought I might as well continue to do so.

Today we’re reading data from MongoDB with Pentaho Data Integration.  We haven’t had a lot of requests for MongoDB support so there is no step to read from it yet.  However, it is surprisingly simple to do with the “User Defined Java Class” step.

For the following sample to work you need to be on a recent 4.2.0-M1 build.  Get it from here.

Then download mongo-2.4.jar and put it in the libext/ folder of your PDI/Kettle distribution.

Then you can read from a collection with the following “User Defined Java Class” code:

import java.math.*;
import java.util.*;

How does a geek end up doing public speaking?
+2 Vote Up -0Vote Down
I just finished reading Confessions of a Public Speaker (O'Reilly) by Scott Berkun. It is the first book I have read cover to cover in 16 years. I even read the colophon (which I had never seen in a book before). I found the entire book to be very engaging. While reading it, I kept reviewing every mistake I had ever made in every talk I have given. Even if you are not a regular public speaker, there is great stuff in the book that can help you with talking to your coworkers, boss, etc. There is a chapter that is more about teaching than speaking that I found really good. I can really apply a lot of that knowledge to working with my team on  [Read more...]
Back from Lisbon, off to Nuremberg

Yesterday afternoon I returned from the SAPO CodeBits 2010 conference, which took place in Lisbon, Portugal. Just like the previous year, CodeBits has been a great conference to be at and I am grateful for having been selected for participation.

XAMPP – Where have you been all my life?
Employee +0 Vote Up -1Vote Down

I love Wordpress.  Really there isn’t a better blogging platform on this platform.  It’s that good.  And I’ve been using it to self-host my blog for the past year or so.  For awhile, I hosted it using II6 on WHS v1.  That was a real pain as it took several days to find a URL rewriting solution that worked with IIS6.  The past few months I’ve been hosting it on my Windows 7-based media center.  Since that runs IIS7, URL rewriting was easier using the standard URL rewrite module.

A few days ago I decided to test out WHS “Vail”.  After installing it, I wanted to move my blog onto it so I downloaded the Microsoft Web Platform Installer.  It promptly let me know that it couldn’t find any products in my selected language.  Huh?  This is what drives people crazy about Windows software.

It's a girl!

Last Saturday I became father to a baby girl - in addition to our 2½year old son.

Those of you who are my former collagues from MySQL, you know about the generous Scandinavian 5 week vacations. (Which in MySQL were practiced globally.) I have decided that now is a good time for me to enjoy another Scandinavian perk: long paternity leave. I will be home with the rest of the family until approximately next February :-)

I'm interviewed today on Radio Vega at 16:00, or not...
+0 Vote Up -3Vote Down

I may or may not be interviewed on the Swedish language Radio Vega. The background to this confusing statement is that the Finnish government today publishes a report on the use of open source in Finnish companies and associated risks related to that. I was a contributor to the report since Monty Program is a Finnish open source company. I guess since I speak Swedish, the reporter had scheduled a telephone interview with me after the press conference.

Methods for searching errors in SQL application
Employee_Team +3 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Some time ago I wrote in Russian language guide for finding errors in SQL application.

To be honest I wrote it having personal aim to have a text which I can easily use refer in case of user questions about how to find particular thing. But this makes less sense having no English version. So now I started to translate it to English and publish. Introduction and first chapter are ready.

You can find it at http://sql-error.microbecal.com/en/index.html  Comments and corrections of mistakes are welcome here.

Getting home to Scandinavia

This blog post is just to list links and tips on getting home to Finland.

First leg: getting to anywhere in Europe

Being stuck in San Fransisco, my first problem has been to get just anywhere closer to home. Taking a boat from America to Europe takes from 6-15 days and is not significantly cheaper than flying. So the best bet is just to fly to Europe.

Thoughts about working in a distributed organization

I've been working in a fully distributed work environment for almost 8 years now (I joined MySQL AB in April, 2002). Therefore I've been reading Toni Schneider's blog post about the "5 reasons why your company should be distributed" with great interest – he raised several points that I fully agree with and which I covered in my talks about "Working for a virtual company - how we do it at MySQL" at last year's next09 conference (slides, video) and at

Between following (from a distance) the talks at Fosdem and anticipating the ones at MySQL User Conference in April, I was reminded of 2 interesting MySQL talks that have had a deeper meaning to me than their original speakers probably intended.

I am still a MySQL/Sun/Oracle employee, but the process made me realize I should just dust off my own domain and, um, be master of it.

In December, I'll give a talk at SAPO Codebits 2009 in Lisbon, Portual. SAPO Codebits is a hacking event held in Portugal annually, completely organized and sponsored by SAPO, a portuguese ISP and subsidiary company of the Portugal Telecom Group.

I will be speaking about web server architectures, web services in general and discuss the pros and cons of different programing languages (like PHP, Java, Python, Ruby, Perl, JavaScript, ASP.NET) and database technologies in the field of web application development, deployment and hosting. In order to save time and keep development costs at a reasonable level, it's very important to identify system flaws and architectural weaknesses in an early stage of the
