Today marks a milestone in terms of the MariaDB project – going forward, the MariaDB project plans to use Github and git for source code management. The migration happens from Launchpad and the bzr tool.
The 10.1 server development (under heavy development now) will happen on Github. You can check it out here: https://github.com/MariaDB/server. Feel free to watch, star or even fork the code, and send us contributions!
The project eventually wants to move the 10.0, 5.5, 5.3, 5.2, and[Read more...]
The Percona Live MySQL Conference and Expo 2014 is just two months away. I’m very excited about this year’s event which continues our tradition of open technical discussions and inviting all parties to the table.
We have a great amount of technical talks from Oracle – I’m especially excited about future-focused talks shedding some light about what to expect in MySQL 5.7 and beyond. This content is best covered by developers actually designing the system and writing the code. We also have great coverage of MySQL[Read more...]
Done is better than perfect. That is one of Spil Games Engineering’s principles and it is really something I embrace. Almost one and a half year ago, Engineering started to use StatsD and Graphite for collecting and graphing performance metrics and one year ago I got fed up that there was, except for a couple of […]
I recently blogged on setting up Experimental Git mirror of Oracle MySQL trees up on GitHub. I’m now happy to announce that there are also mirrors for:
I’ve also updated the Oracle MySQL GIT mirror to include MySQL 5.7 and the (now abandoned) MySQL 6.0. I include the abandoned 6.0 tree as it can provide useful archaeology as to where some code came from.
I’d love to hear about any positive/negative experiences using these[Read more...]
Gist is a simple way to share snippets and pastes with others. All gists are git repositories, so they are automatically versioned, forkable and usable as a git repository.
The MySQL Sandbox project has been around for 8 years, and it has gained considerable attention from the community. I have seen it mentioned in books and articles, used in other projects, and widely adopted by testers and bug reporters.
I have used it for more than testing, and it has saved me many hours of labor by allowing me to create database servers in a few seconds.
Yet, I have gathered a long list of grievance about it, both from my own experience and from other users feedback. Here goes.
Red Hat revenue up 28% in Q2. Funding for NoSQL vendors. And more.

I need help with this. I had a dream… Well, not so much as a dream, maybe a “It’d be cool to…”
I thought it’d be nice to discover new photos on flickr using your favorite photos and the people who also favorited those photos, and the favorite photos of those who also favorited my pictures. Still with me?
It’s actually a quite simple code (about 500 lines, check it on github: discovr), but it’s terribly slow. Some possible reasons:
loops is a small and lightweight framework for Ruby on Rails and Merb created to support simple background loops in your application which are usually used to do some background data processing on your servers (queue workers, batch tasks processors, etc).
Originally loops plugin was created to make our (Scribd.com) own loops code more organized. We used to have tens of different modules with methods that were called with script/runner and then used with nohup and other not so convenient backgrounding techniques. When you have such a number of loops/workers to run in background it becomes a nightmare to manage them on a regular basis (restarts, code upgrades, status/health checking, etc).
After a short time of writing our[Read more...]
