New table listing deployed

With this deployment, the first step of a transition to using YUI datatable is completed.

New forms code deployed

Although you shouldn't see any difference, the entry forms in MyOwnDB are now generated by a totally different code, and are actually full javascript forms. This change offers a lot of opportunities for the future, especially for integrating the public forms in websites, and is the first step in the large-scale code update that is currently occuring.

Biggest update in a long time

Today I pushed the biggest update to myowndb.com in a long time. It's the biggest update, but you won't see anything, it's all happening under the hood. The change is about the implementation of the file attachments, which is now more flexible and will allow the implementation of multiple backends and use one simply by changing the configuration. Next step it to bring Dedomenon code up to date.

Identify the version of the software running on myowndb.com

Although our UI has not changed in a long time (but expect some news about that soon), there's been quite some work being done under the hood, especially in our infrastructure. In the previous weeks we have had literally dozens of deployment happening on our production application. As we're possibly deploying multiple times a day, it became important that our users be able to follow these evolutions, if only to be able to include the version number they are talking about when contacting us about the application.

MyOwnDB in Datanews

Bart got interviewed for Datanews, a major IT magazine un Belgium, and you can see the resulting article online in dutch and in french. The article doesn't cover our software, but rather our business and the problem we want to tackle: the publishing of structure information.

MyOwnDB at T-Dose

On saturday 25 october, Raphaël will give a talk on Dedomenon, the engine powering MyOwnDB.com, at T-Dose. T-Dose being a event focused on open source technologies, the talk will focus on Dedomenon, our engine available under the AGPLv3 license at dedomenon.org.

Famfamfam Silk icons used

I've deployed new icons in the application. These are Famfamfam Silk icons, a collection if 1000(!!) free (under the Creative Commons license) icons of really high quality, with very broad coverage. If you're looking for icons in your web application, you know where to go from now on. Note that the Silk icons are not the only ones available.

There's nothing like going live

You can prepare everything as good as you want you'll always discover something when your application goes live and gets used by other people that beta tester. That's why I'm happy of the interest and the number of people signing up for a free account, and most of all, of the limited number of problems encountered. True, we've made 3 updates to the applications in the last 24 hours, but those fixed all issues encountered by users. The most annoying problem is that we can't accept details named "id", as it clashes with our internal structure.
