  • What’s the Database Plus concept and what challenges can it solve?
    5 projects | | 10 May 2022
    An increasing number of application scenarios has exacerbated database fragmentation, making database architecture, protocols, functions, and application scenarios increasingly diversified. In terms of database architecture, the centralized database which is evolved from a single-machine system coexists with the new generation of native distributed databases. In terms of database protocols, MySQL and PostgreSQL, two major open source ecosystems, as well as the service ecosystems provided by depending vendors, also have a foothold in the global database system.

  • The Beauty of Open Source
    3 projects | | 24 Apr 2022
    One of the databases we support in Magic Cloud is MySQL. MySQL's database connector for .Net has a long standing bug related to async retrieval of data. If MySQL was closed source, there would be no way anybody would really know, except that all attempts to fetch data from a MySQL database would be blocking invocations, resulting in much less scalability and throughput for your backend as it fetches data from your MySQL instance. At some point some smart developer understood the problem, and more importantly how to fix it. At Aista we had no idea about these issues with MySQL's default data connector. However our codebase was open source, so we didn't need to know, since due to our codebase being open source another smart developer discovered the issue for us, and fixed it without us having to do anything but click the "Accept pull request button". Thank you Bradley Grainger.

  • Erica Brescia: the future of Cloud, Wasm, and Open Source

    EB Yeah, there you go! We can be old together. So yeah, I just started going to like LAMP stack meetups and things like that in San Francisco. And, you know, we went on, for those of you who don't know, we started a company called Bitrock, and then we started Bitnami. And our goal really, and we discovered this while at Bitrock, and it kind of gave birth to Bitnami, was to make it easier for people to actually use open source software, like we realize that, at the time, you didn't have packaged open source software, it was just like, code, right? And you had to be able to deploy everything yourself. And, back in those days, kind of MySQL and Jaspersoft and Pentaho, and all of these companies were getting started that we're building on open source, but like, the people who might want to use SugarCRM software weren't developers, they didn't have a way to install it. And so what we did was, we packaged up, you know, built installers, this was before VMs, or containers, and cloud images and everything. We built installers that made it really easy for people to set up a LAMP development environment on their, on their laptop, right. And what we saw was, you know, even developers who could set up everything themselves didn't really want to, and these installers got really popular. And so, you know, I mentioned that story, because I think it's interesting to think about, like different ways that you can contribute, right, the way that I ended up contributing was supporting a company and building a team that was doing the work to bring open source to people. Because I contributed in the ways that I did to build the company, we got to hire a ton of developers and build really cool things, a lot of which were done in open source, and also make open source more accessible. And what I found was like, the community, and it's hard to say the community, right, because there's not one open source community, there's a ton of open source communities, and they all have different cultures and values and things like that. But at least in the places where I got involved in the meetups I went to in the early like OSCON, and the early open source conferences, like, I really never felt judged for not being a developer, I found people to be really welcoming and patient with like, me trying to understand, you know, what a reverse proxy is, or whatever it was back in the day. And like, Yeah, I think, you know, to answer your question about how to get started, like, there's so many things you can do from being helpful in support forums on, you know, GitHub or on places like Stack Overflow, to contributing to documentation. Like, I think docs teams don't get enough love and support and having great Docs is one of the most important things that an open source project needs to thrive. And you don't always have to be technical to write the Docs. Right? You can help run events. I think you can, you know, interview interesting people who aren't developers, like, there's so many different ways that you can get involved in, I think, you know, to folks who maybe have a little imposter’s syndrome, it's like, honestly, what do you really have to lose? Like, people are genuinely, generally pretty nice. Like, just, you know, pick up a pen and do something and ask questions, ask thoughtful questions, right, like, try to do your homework first. But um, yeah, there's really nothing ultimately, I think to be afraid of.
