Because we can: MySQL talks with Johan Wikman, Father of MySQL on Symbian/S60. (part 3 of 3)
Employee_Team +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Continued from Part 2

Q: So what are some applications or prototypes you are actually working on? Which do you see as the most interesting ones? Can I do something useful with this today already?

In general, what I find most interesting are the use-cases that utilize the aspects that make a web-server on a mobile personal device unique. Use-cases that take advantage of the fact that the context - location, surrounding devices and people, etc. - constantly changes, and the fact that the web-site "administrator" is always there.

And I get all worked up when I think on the implications - even if I obviously don't know what they all might be - if all mobile phones were equipped with a globally accessible web-server (I ignore all technical challenges).

Q: But, we digress... so let me instead ask you the question everyone asks me when they hear about Apache and MySQL on a mobile phone: Why on earth would anyone want to do THAT?

Because we can:)

No seriously, there are good reasons. If we assume that it makes sense to run a web server on your mobile (see further down for reasons for that) and the web-server you use is Apache, then it's quite obvious that you also want to provide both PHP and MySQL. After all, some 40% of all web-sites in the world are powered by (L)AMP, so if you provide the same environment on the mobile, you have hundreds of thousands of developers who are familiar with the stack.

But, in my mind, there are also compelling reasons to

By the end of 2007, to the surprise of many of us, a guy at Nokia Research Center announced that they had ported and were about to publish the full LAMP stack running on the Symbian/S60 platform of Nokia mobile phones. They dubbed this the Personal AMP stack: PAMP, and you can run most of the popular PHP apps like Wordpress, Drupal, phpMyAdmin... out of the box on a Nokia phone now.

Today we had the opportunity to have a chat with Johan Wikman, the man leading the efforts of porting the AMP stack to Symbian. Johan works as Principal Research Engineer at Nokia Research Center and as such has also previously participated in porting other interesting things to Nokia phones, such as the Linux kernel, eventually leading to what maemo is today.

There is an interesting "it's a small world" aspect in that Johan used to study at
