A couple of weeks ago we announced that we were moving from a hosted instance of JIRA to our self hosted instance. The main reason was that we hit 2000 active users in the hosted instance of JIRA and that is the upper limit that it supports. We obviously wanted to allow more people to […]
I found this very simple yet very clear list of principles that
can be kept in mind while developing for the web.
Excerpt from above link:
"As web developers, we are responsible for shaping the experiences of user's online lives. By making choices that are ethical and user-centered, we create a better web for everyone."

New SSL alternatives SSL connections in previous versions of MariaDB Connector/C based on the OpenSSL library. The OpenSSL heartbleed bug, licensing problems and the lack of supporting different transport layers were the main reasons that we decided to offer SSL alternatives. In addition to OpenSSL the following SSL libraries are supported in Connector/C 3.0: GnuTLS […]
The JSON format includes the concept of array. A JSON object cant contain an attribute of array type. We have seen that we can use the MariaDB CONNECT Storage Engine provided UDFs (user defined functions) to implement dynamic columns. Let us create a table with a text column containing a a JSON string and let ...continue reading "Using JSON’s Arrays for MariaDB Dynamic Columns"
MariaDB CONNECT storage engine handles access to JSON files through standard SQL. It comes with a set of UDFs (user defined functions) to manipulate the JSON format. This JSON content can be stored in a normal text column. This approach can be used to implement dynamic columns. The dynamic column concept was first introduced with ...continue reading "Using JSON as Dynamic Columns with MariaDB"

With the release of 10.1.8, MariaDB takes a next step. MariaDB 10.1 is now considered a stable release.
MariaDB 10.1 has a couple of main themes:
- High Availability
During the last few years there have been many request for more security features in MariaDB. Actually it’s a trend in general. Since open source software is getting more attractive all the time, more functionality is wanted in areas where proprietary software typically has been leading. This is especially true for databases. In addition data privacy is a very hot topic.
The big new thing in security for MariaDB 10.1 is a complete data at rest encryption solution. The encryption that now is in use originates from Google’s encryption patch. It has now been migrated into MariaDB 10.1. The …[Read more]
