Behind the Scenes at a Venture Capital Firm
+3 Vote Up -1Vote Down

Last fall, before I joined Zendesk, I took a role as an Executive-in-Residence at Scale Venture Partners. A lot of people asked me about this, so I've written an article at GigaOm that describes my thought process and what I ended up working on.

While there are as many variations on the EIR position as there are venture firms, there are two flavors, …

Moving a LAMP site
+0 Vote Up -1Vote Down

I’ve done this in the past, but thought this time I’ve got to take notes. It can be used as a crude check list in the future. Don’t underestimate the power of a practical, down-to-earth check list! Perhaps documents like this should be kept in a wiki page, for easy updating to avoid being stale, a proeblem with blog entries, it seems.

P in LAMP here stands for php, not Python or Perl. L is CentOS (I used CentOS 5.5) or Red Hat Linux. I am not covering moving all databases in a MySQL instance, just a select few or just one.

I’d appreciate your comments or suggestions.

Packages needed for building MySQL/MariaDb/Percona
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

From a stock/standard/typical/desktop install of Linux, it seems these are required in order to build MySQL/MariaDb/Percona forks:

ncurses (Thanks Justin!)

Do apt-get, yum, rpm, emerge, or whatever to get them before doing configure, make and such. I am missing one, and I think it has “curse” or something like that in its name. Will update this post when I find that out.

GigaOm Net:Work Conference - Dec 9
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I only recently found out about GigaOm's upcoming Net:Work conference.  It's held December 9 at UCSF Mission Bay conference center.  While the name of the conference is a bit ambiguous, the actual area of focus is very clear: how will we collaborate in the 21st century?  

The impact of smartphones, tablet computing, social networks, Software-as-a-Service and Cloud computing is just starting.  As a result, I think there are tremendous opportunities for …

Adopting RAD in the Enterprise: The 14 Biggest Misconceptions
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Rapid Application Development (RAD) is a way of developing computer software applications with less effort than the traditional means.

RAD tools focus on providing code generation and automated testing capabilities with the use of convention over configuration to provide a streamlined workflow to create applications.

Even with the most advanced and easiest to use RAD tools, there are times which the traditional enterprise and the business software development vendors which are having their own implementations …

Cloud, SaaS and The Consumerization of IT
+2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I wrote a guest column for GigaOm on how open source software, cloud and software as a service are helping to bring about the consumerization of IT: namely bringing simplicity where complexity reigned.  I cited some examples including New Relic, and Apple.

Open source has gone a long way toward putting power back in the hands of developers, who can download, install and deploy software without having to go through any kind of convoluted sales or budget …

How Real is the Data Deluge?
+1 Vote Up -1Vote Down

It seems obvious that given the decreasing cost of storage and computation, there's going to be a significant increase in the volume of data that organizations accumulate over the next 10 years.  But the type of data being accumulated may be different from the areas where traditional DBMSs dominated.  It's not just about transactions; it's search patterns, on-line behavior, click-thru data, events fired off by smartphones, messages over Twitter & Facebook, log data of various kinds.

If an organization can figure out a better way identify …

Following High Performance MySQL’s hash index discussion
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Mixing up some MySQL and SQL Server hacking activities can be fun. I’ve also noticed that when you work with different database platforms, it can bring additional clarity to certain concepts and techniques. One reason for that, I think, is that different terminologies and ways of explanations are used for people practicing on different platforms, and that tends to re-enforce or otherwise bring clarity to things that you may not have a good grasp to begin with.

Anyway, I am following Baron …

Generic indices in GenieDB
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

We’re gearing up to release v0.5 of GenieDB right now, and the biggest new feature in v0.5 is the generic indexing framework.

Originally, GenieDB provided indices on fields of records. As we do not mandate a per-table schema, each record in a table could have totally different fields; so when an index is created on the field “foo” of the table “bar”, we index any record in “bar” that has a “foo” field under that value in the index. If the record did not have a “foo” field, then it doesn’t appear in the index at all (whereas records with a NULL value for “foo” are indexed under NULL, of course).

However, …
