Einztein is pleased to be joining the Learning Registry, an open source technical system designed to facilitate the capturing, sharing, and analyzing of learning resource data to broaden the usefulness of digital content to benefit educators and learners.

That’s pretty heady stuff. It boils down to this… we’re going to work together to make “learning resource data” useful.

Open source search engines every developer should know about.

Search is a crucial feature of any website.  Even if your navigation is crystal clear, it still doesn’t cater for those power users and return visitors that remembered a particular piece of content, or want to find collections of information stored on your site in the same topical areas.

Typically search is one of the most poorly implemented pieces of technology on a site, with developers opting for the standard the out of the box solution which comes with most modern content management systems – and in many cases doesn’t do justice to your content. I thought I’d take a look at what other enterprise level and open source search engines out there to find and index the information on your site faster, and provide users with a deeper, more relevant resultset.

The Architecture of Open Source Applications
Amy Brown and Greg Wilson (eds.)

Architects look at thousands of buildings during their training, and study critiques of those buildings written by masters. In contrast, most software developers only ever get to know a handful of large programs well usually programs they wrote themselves and never study the great programs of history. As a result, they repeat one another’s mistakes rather than building on one another’s successes.

This book’s goal is to change that. In it, the authors of twenty-five open source applications explain how their software is structured, and why. What are each program’s major components? How do they interact? And what did their builders learn during their development? In answering these questions, the contributors to this book provide unique insights into how they think.

If you are a junior developer, and want to learn how your more experienced colleagues think, this book is the place to start. If you are an intermediate or senior developer, and want to see how your peers have solved hard design problems, this book can help you too.
