Open Source Site of the Day -- OSSWAD: Open Source Savvy Web Application Developer

An OSSWAD, almost sounds like a forbidden word. Based upon Bob Zurek's column, there are Osswads, and then there are OSSWADs. Many developers of web sites 'out there' already use Open Source tools to get the job done. Apache, MySQL, PostgreSQL, Perl, and PHP are commonly used tools by Osswads.

On the other hand, one gets the impression that real, enterprise savvy OSSWADs, use some real hard core tools like:

  • hadoop: large scale distributed compute clusters. Amazon has a developer resource center with a Hadoop/MapReduce Paper.
  • lucene: not just search software, but something that provides the basis for getting meaningfull context. There is an informative online book to go alone with it.
  • nutch: adds web specifics to lucene: web crawling, link-graphs, and parsers.

These Open Source projects fill in more of the gaps of the thinking I've been doing on providing some contextual search products in specific subject matter areas. It looks like I won't have to do as much ground up development as I thought I might need to do.
