Best of this Week Summary 13 September - 19 September 2010

  • Interesting (sort of inside) view on how Google controls what's shipped with Android on mobile phones, how smart their usage of open source is, and why Android probably got such a big momentum quickly.
    The controls are: private branches, closed review process, speed of evolution of the platform versions, incomplete public source code, gated development community, anti-fragmentation agreement, private roadmap and Android trademark.

  • Good list of lessons learned when building social sites.

  • Atomiq could be handy tool to check for duplicate code in Java, C#, VB.Net, ASPX, Ruby, Python, C, C++, ActionScript and XAML. A related similar tool is the Copy Paste Detector in PMD.
