Happy 2010 - it's review time
+3 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I was happily snowboarding and skiing (the latter for the first time in two decades) last week, so here comes the year-end review a week late. Last year, I harped on Facebook's closed nature, and over the the year they've tried to open more of the users' data over to the Internet. Still, there are no decent APIs for a user to pull out everything they've posted to Facebook to have their own copy, though. That doesn't seem to stop them from dominating the Internet for the time being, though, so good for them.

I'm trying to think of what would have surprised me over the year, but given I failed to make many accurate predictions myself, things just seemed to happen in pretty natural direction.

First Olio Release
Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

We have just released the first binary version of Apache Olio for both the PHP and Rails implementation. Both implementations have been tested quite thoroughly now and we think they are robust enough for serious use - especially for performance testing the workloads.


I introduced Olio in a previous post. It is a toolkit that includes a sample web2.0 application implemented in both PHP and Rails that includes a load generator to drive load against the application.


Please visit the Olio site and download the kits. If you find it interesting, I invite you to come join the project.

Microformats go mainstream
Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I talked about Microformats in a post last year on web20expo. It appears that the technology is now going main stream. I attended a workshop on Web2.0 Best Practices
at the Web20 Expo this week in which the speaker, Niall Kennedy
expounded on th advantages of using microformats. He said he's seen a
significant growth in traffic on his site since he started doing so since search engine results show direct links to pages on his site.
 Yahoo is adding microformats to many of their properties. The

Web2.0 Expo
Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I attended the Web 2.0 Expo held in San Francisco between April 15-18. Here are some thoughts on some of the things that caught my attention.

 Rich Internet Applications

There was a lot of talk about RIAs, many products ranging from full-blown development environments to languages, language environments etc. Some examples include Apollo (new announcement from Adobe), Django, curl (no - this is not the OSS libcurl), Silverlight (Microsoft's response to Adobe !)
So it seems that the applications are once again moving onto the desktop - after moving from fat client to the web, we have now realized that the web environment really is not rich enough for many applications.

I can't help wondering

Playing with the Xing API
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Xing is Europe's leading Business Network with more than 2 million members. Recently, Xing announced that they would come up with an API later this year to get access to the network. As far as I know, Xing was developed by ePublica using Perl and MySQL.

 

Having an API is essential in these mashup days. I was invited to the private alpha test and implemented a reference implementation of an API client via PHP5 which behaves like SOAPClient (but uses ReST as the transport mechanism) and overloads the methods that are available.

MySQL Webinar: LAMP - Security for the Web2.0
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

It has only been two years since Tim O'Reilly coined the phrase Web 2.0 and even shorter time since Jesse James Garret created the shortcut AJAX for the base technology of modern internet applications. In this period the nature of web applications underwent a major change in user experience and development methods.

It is the age of integrated communication. Content is created using rich interfaces by users for others users, collected by feed aggregators, collaboratively bookmarked, tagged, complemented by maps and delivered as a service for mash-ups. A good portion of this services a supplied by the LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP / Python / Perl). Since every technology has its dark companion, new security risks arose, and others grew more important.

Understanding successful tracing of security vulnerabilities
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Web applications can easily become very complex. Several hundreds of thousands of lines of code (no HTML templates!) is usual at larger corporate solutions. This also means that your PHP applications follows the standards like object oriented programming, nested classes etc.

When it comes down to detect security vulnerabilities, a lot of tools are available. In a previous post I told you that we developed Chorizo! mainly because we needed a tool that checks for security vulnerabilities (both XSS issues and server side issues) very easily. I think our GUI is very nice :-)

In a previous post I introduced Morcilla to you (see video here and here and

Detect and fix security vulnerabilities on server side within seconds.

(See bigger version with better quality at https://chorizo-scanner.com/flash_morcilla )

This video shows you how Morcilla, our brand new PHP extension, lets Chorizo! have a look inside your application on the server.

We are able to hook into every PHP function and trace the payloads of Chorizo!. By default, Morcilla hooks into the whole MySQL function family, fopen, mail, include/require/include_once/require_once, preg_* and others. With a ZendEngine patch, we are able to trace unset variables and a lot more.

See the video how it works (Google Video, YouTube). Check
