Ant

March 10, 2010

I have always wanted to know what “Ant” is and how it is compiled/executed. Though I had a fair, basic idea of what it is, I was still curious for a step-by-step procedure. I googled and found this:

Memcached

March 7, 2010

I am a bit late to comment on Memcached. I have been hearing this term since last 2 months. It has been actively used by almost all the internet companies. But, I never understood, how it worked from developer’s perspective.

Finally, I invested some time digging through it. And, this is your ONLY destination (to get the very basic idea of it):

No SQL movement!

January 14, 2010

I have been trying/figuring/analyzing what this “NoSQL” movement is. Why are people moving away from RDBMS?

There are good reasons for it. I have been figuring out cassandra which facebook uses internally. I installed it on my windows machine (yes, it was a pain to install since the Read me file had all Linux commands/setup) and could successfully run on it! 😀
I am going to write on how to get started with cassandra soon.

But, before that, I would suggest first to understand why RDBMSs should be ruled out. What is the need for it?
I came across this article: http://www.vineetgupta.com/2010/01/nosql-databases-part-1-landscape.html
It at least helped me a lot.
