Best of this Week Summary 24 - 30 June 2007

  • Nice use of RSS: use it to publish your nightly build results. They then use the (commercial) product Confluence to build a wiki page out of it.
  • Interesting write-up of one of the developers of the Digg comments system. Very AJAX and PHP orientated solution. Notice for example that the DOM is created mostly dynamically and there is 4x as much Javascript code than PHP code for the comments functionality! For interesting detailed design desicions made (main question to anser: how to the commenting more complex and simpler at the same time), see this link, also mentioned in the article.
