User preferences survey

May 30th, 2010 No comments

I made a short survey concerning users’ expectations for preferences in phpMyAdmin. If you use this application on daily basis, or used a few times and just want to share your opinion, please take a few minutes to fill it in – phpMyAdmin user preferences survey.

GSoC – start

May 27th, 2010 No comments

Summer of Code has officially started on Monday, so for the next twelve weeks I will be publishing here my plans for following weeks and results.

My development environment is already set, and like all fellow students coding for phpMyAdmin I will be using git for my Version Control System. Information on accessing my fork and published commits can be found here: At the beginning there won’t be much happening, as my semester ends around 24th June and until then the time I can spend on coding will be limited.

In the remainder of the week I want to look through all current configuration options to find out which ones can be safely modified by users, without compromising security and impending performance. After that is done, I will start refactoring the setup script, to extract code I can reuse, and begin UI design.

A few days ago I got accepted for this year’s Google Summer of Code, meaning that during this summer I will do my best to provide the phpMyAdmin project with new features, along with five other students.  You can read about our projects on the official Google Summer of Code 2010 site or Planet phpMyAdmin, where all student’s blogs all aggregated.

If you want to know more about my project, read on to my proposal below.
