Starting my life as a freelancer

As of the first of August I have become self employed. After working for Spil Games in the past nine and a half year as developer, IT architect, DBA and Head of Database Engineering I decided it was time to share my knowledge with the world outside.

I have founded my own company, DBArt, which I will use as an umbrella to both work as a freelance DBA and share knowledge in various ways. In the last case think beyond training and writing, but more on that in a future update.

In September I will be present at the Percona Live Europe Amsterdam 2015 conference and present about the MySQL StatsD project that I inherited and maintain. I will also do a short lightning talk about when micro services become evil. Don’t get me wrong here: I’m not against micro services at all. But they can become evil and you definitely need to know about it and be aware they can bite you …

MySQL StatsD release 0.1.3

About one and a half years ago we created MySQL StatsD to keep get insights of any MySQL server using a local daemon that frequently queries the MySQL server and pushes its data to StatsD locally. In the past year we have seen the usage of the MySQL StatsD project increase and more and more […]

Spil Games hackday: research MaxScale

Spil Games hackday At Spil Games we organise a monthly hackday (actually the last two Thursday/Friday of the month) where several teams try to hack something in limited amount of time. The only rules for the hackday are: make something cool, keep it simple, document it, learn something and have fun. In general it means time is […]

MariaDB & MySQL Community Event videos & slides now up

If you couldn’t attend the MariaDB & MySQL Community Event in April 2014, held at the Hilton Santa Clara, fret not as there are slides and videos uploaded for you to watch at your leisure. There is likely to be at least one more community event later this year, so watch the space.

Currently on the page, you’ll find most of the talks with slides and the videos are professionally done – with slide overlays. The audio could be better on some, but for an event that was pulled together by Monty in less than 3 weeks, it’s not too shabby. You can learn What’s new in MariaDB 10, a little more about the SPIDER storage engine, more about …

Merging 5.6 test cases and thoughts on feature deprecation in MariaDB 10.0

MariaDB 10 is nearing GA, and it makes sense to make sure that the test suite from MySQL 5.6 is merged into MariaDB 10. Svoj is doing a lot of this work, and then we like to look at features, especially ones that are deprecated upstream. We don’t do that on blogs, but on the maria-developers mailing list.

I bring to your attention: Intermediate status for test cases merge. We see that INSERT DELAYED and SHOW PROFILE for example are deprecated in MySQL 5.6. The only way for feedback to the MySQL team seems to be comments on Morgan’s blog. However with MariaDB, especially with the feedback plugin enabled, we have an additional layer of …

MariaDB in Google Summer of Code 2014

MariaDB is participating in the Google Summer of Code 2014. Students are encouraged to propose a project before the deadline (this Friday!).

This is our second year participating, and as always we have an ideas page available. We also have a list of things we think are achievable in JIRA – check out our gsoc14 tag.

In 2013, we had three projects, of which two are in MariaDB 10.0: PCRE regular expressions and Roles. The other will be targeted towards MariaDB 10.1. There’s nothing like having GSoC students participate and …

After my presentation at FOSDEM I got a few questions regarding our Galera implementation and why we did things the way we want. First of all, the slides: Spil Games @ FOSDEM: Galera Replicator IRL from spil-engineering Second of all, the questions I got: Q: Why first copy all the data to a new MySQL […]

How we tamed Sphinx Search

It is no secret that Spil Games is a heavy user of Sphinx Search. We use it in many ways including game-search, profile-search and since a few months ago to even build our category and subcategory listings. In all cases we do not use it as an extension of MySQL but rather as a standalone […]
