Deployment Script Spring Cleaning Gossple Project - Gossple Anne-Marie Kermarrec, researcher at INRIA Rennes-Bretagne Atlantique is awarded a 1.2 million euros l'ERC starting grant. Beyond the fact that this acknowledges the quality of her research, this grant provides her with a great practical and intellectual stability for the 5 next years. Anne-Marie Kermarrec has been selected with 297 other researchers, among 10,000 applications in Europe, all sciences included. Gossple aims at radically changing the navigation on the Internet by placing users affinities and preferences at the heart of the search process. Gossple precisely aims at providing a fully decentralized system, auto-organizing, able to discover, capture and leverage the affinities between users and data. Complementing Google-like search engines, Gossple will turn the request into a dynamic object navigating the network using epidemic protocols to find matching users/data. relevant clusters of users and data. This goes far beyond discovering indexed data.

The impact of language choice on github projects Although I spend a lot of my play-time fooling about with other languages, my professional and released code consists of Python, C, C++ and, alas, Javascript. I've lived in this tiny corner of the magic garden of modern software development for 10 years, and I'm itching to strike out in a different direction for my next project. With this in mind, I've started to wonder about the impact of language choice on the development process. Are there major differences between projects in different languages? Is it possible to quantify these differences? I decided to try to gather some hard numbers. The rest of this post takes a basic look at the numbers for 12 languages. Lets look at the numbers. Lets start with a quick overview of the basics of the dataset. First, the sample size. This graph shows the median number of contributors to projects in each language. Here we see the median number of commits for projects in each language - in some senses, we can view this as a proxy for project age.

I pushed 30 of my projects to GitHub Hey everyone, I just pushed 30 of my projects to GitHub. I realized that all the projects were scattered across my blog and there was no central repository. So I took time to organize them, write documentation, and uploaded them to GitHub. I did all of these projects for fun and to learn better programming. You can't become a great programmer if you don't program a lot. These were all relatively small projects and I think I am ready to move to the next level. If you find any of my projects interesting, clone and start hacking. Here they all are. 1. Busy beaver is a computer science problem to finding the smallest Turing Machine that outputs the most data and eventually halts. 2. Current Feedburner statistics graphs do not look nice. 3. This is a Perl program that parses public statcounter data for blog and stores the search keywords in an SQLite database. 4. This is a tiny Python module that does asynchronous DNS resolution with adns library. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12.

Free Software Project Hosting August 9th, 2009 I asked for suggestions a few days ago. I got several good ones, and investigated them. You can find my original criteria at the link above. Here’s what I came up with: Google Code Its very simple interface appeals to me. A big requirement of mine is being able to upload tarballs or ZIP files from the command line in an automated fashion. URL: Gitorious Gitorious is one of the two Git-based sites that put a strong emphasis on community. The downside of Gitorious or Github is that they tie me to Git. Gitorious fails several of my requirements, though. It can spontaneously create a tar.gz file from the head of any branch, but not a zip file. Potential workarounds include using Lighthouse for bug tracking (they do support git integration for changelog messages) and my own server to host tarballs and ZIP files — which I could trivially upload via scp. URL: Github At first glance, this is a more-powerful version of Gitorious. URL: Launchpad
