Love the way these look. #

A bit of info about setting up a buildbot “try” server to try arbitrary patches. #

📌 Web Application Exploits and Defenses

This should be required reading for web developers. Kudos to Google for putting this out. #

📌 CSS3 Please! The Cross-Browser CSS3 Rule Generator

Nifty. #

📌 Pyntch - Static Code Analysis for Python

Typeflow analysis for Python. Looks pretty cool; don’t know how well it’ll work on larger projects. #

📌 Pivotal Tracker

Bug tracking software oriented around the “story/iteration” model. Looks pretty neat, though I kinda wish the bullshit jargon around “Agile Software” would curl up and die; it’s just distracting and Inside Baseball-y. I especially like the built-in velocity tracking; that’s something traditional bug tracks aren’t so good at. #

📌 The key lesson I learned building PolitiFact: Demos, not memos | mattwaite.com

I have an enormous amount of respect for folks like Matt who can just shut up and Get Shit Done. Every minute spent thinking about the “best” or “right” way to do something is a minute you haven’t spent actually building it. Matt’s completely right: building a demo is the best way to prove an idea, even if the only audience for the demo is you. #

📌 Amazon Web Services Blog: 100% on Amazon Web Services: Soocial.com

A look at one app’s AWS architecture. Nginx, HAProxy, Rails, pgpool II, PostgreSQL, and RabbitMQ. I didn’t realize that pgpool II did sharding at the balancer layer; that makes this kind of set up much easier. #

📌 Defying Classification: Thoughts About Two Releases

Malcolm ponders release processes vis a vis the recent Wordpress and MySQL releases. Good shit. #

📌 Bare Bones Software | BBEdit 9.0 Release Notes #
📌 Coder Who Says Py: Initial slides for PyCon core development tutorial online

Brett’s (preliminary) slides on contributing to Python. I need to prepare something similar for Django. #

📌 Changes Beta

An interesting visual diff tool along the lines of FileMerge or kdiff3. I’ve been more than happy with FileMerge, but Changes is probably worth a look. #

📌 TrueCrypt explained

Cryptography makes my head hurt. #

📌 Piston ~ Easy Vendor Branch Management

“Piston is a utility that eases vendor branch management. This is similar to svn:externals, except you have a local copy of the files, which you can modify at will. As long as the changes are mergeable, you should have no problems.” Nifty. #

📌 Matt Legend Gemmell » Blog Archive » Get rid of your code with Leopard

An overview of what’s new in Leopard for developers. The killer feature of Leopard is really going to be what it lets indie developers do; I can’t wait to see what Panic, Flying Meat, et al. can do with this stuff. #

📌 TidBITS iPod & iPhone: Apple Nearing iPhone Third-Party Developer Announcement

From any other source I’d call bullshit, but it’s Glenn Fleishman and TidBITS, and seems to line up with some rumblings I’ve been hearing from inside the Mothership. Who knows—anything’s possible... #

📌 Maintaining Permissive-Licensed Files in a GPL-Licensed Project: Guidelines for Developers - Software Freedom Law Center

Important guidlines from the SFLC on how to properly relicense permissively-licensed (i.e. BSD/MIT) code. Good to see that something positive came out of the whole Atheros driver kerfuffle. #

📌 JoeHewitt.com: Introducing iUI

Joe Hewitt’s JavaScript/CSS utilities for nice iPhone apps. #

Whoa, Aaron Broodman is behind Google Gears!? I guess I should have known, but I’m somehow a lot more excited about it now that I do. #

📌 Buildix from ThoughtWorks :: project start-up in a box

A development toolbox in a single disk image. #

A good collection of stories from Django users. Gives me the warm fuzzies :) #

📌 Welcome to pyglet

“Pyglet is a cross-platform gaming / multimedia library written in pure Python.” Built on OpenGL. #

📌 pydoctor

YA python to API doc tool. But this one’s by mwh, so it’s likely a cut above. #
