Open APIs are the new open source
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

We’ve seen the rise of open source software in the enterprise and also beyond the IT industry, but the real keys to openness and its advantages in today’s technology world — where efficient use of cloud computing and supporting services are paramount — exist in open application programming interfaces, or APIs.

Open source software continues to be a critical part of software development, systems administration, IT operations and more, but much of the action in leveraging modern cloud computing and services-based infrastructures centers on APIs. Open APIs are the new open source.

MySQL: Python, Meta-Programming, and Interceptors
Employee +2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I recently found Todd's posts on interceptors which allow callbacks (called interceptors) to be registered with the connector so that you can intercept a statement execution, commit, or any of the many extension points supported by Connector/Java. This is a …

Automatic reconnect in MySQL Connector/Python?
Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

There have been some request to have some reconnect possibilities in Connector/Python. I’m wondering now whether there should be some automatic reconnect on certain errors within the database driver.

My personal feeling is to have no automatic reconnect within Connector/Python and the programmer has to come up with retrying transactions herself.

For example:

        cnx.disconnect() # For testing..
        tries = 2
        while tries > 0:
                tries -= 1
                try:
                        cursor.execute("INSERT INTO t1 (c1) VALUES ('ham')") …

Python Interface to MySQL
Employee +1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

There has been a lot of discussions lately about various non-SQL languages that provide access to databases without having to resort to using SQL. I wondered how difficult it would be to implement such an interface, so as an experiment, I implemented a simple interface in Python that similar to the document-oriented interfaces available elsewhere. The interface generate SQL queries to query the database, but does not require any knowlegdge of SQL to use. The syntax is inspired by JQuery, but since JQuery works with documents, the semantics is slightly different.

A simple example would look like this: …

On Password Strength
+6 Vote Up -0Vote Down

XKCD (as usual) makes a very good point – this time about password strength, and I reckon it’s something app developers need to consider urgently. Geeks can debate the exact amount of entropy, but that’s not really the issue: insisting on mixed upper/lower and/or non-alpha and/or numerical components to a user password does not really improve security, and definitely makes life more difficult for users.

So basically, the functions that do a “is this a strong password” should seriously reconsider their approach, particularly if they’re used to have the app decide whether to accept the password as “good enough” …
