Best of this Week Summary 23 June - 28 June 2008

  • This post summarizes the key parts of the LinkedIn architecture (40M pageviews/day). Full presentations also available. Lots of Java. Below an architecture overview diagram from one of the presentations:

  • Overview of the plans of the BBC for their application/website infrastructure: moving it from mainly Perl and static files to SOA, Single SignOn, REST, Java and PHP.

  • Orbitz (the online travel booking agency yes) is open sourcing their Extremely Reusable Monitoring API (ERMA) and Graphite this coming Monday. Here's why they're open sourcing their ERMA and Graphite, which are "part of a Complex Event Processing system designed to monitor large distributed applications, analyze the data that is gathered and display that data in real-time graphs."

  • All of Google's Data APIs now support oAuth. So no need anymore to store a username and password in web applications that use one of Google's Data APIs. Recently also PhotoBucket and SmugMug announced oAuth support.
