Long time no blog. So, to break the silence for a second, here is a list of cool new software that I have played with recently:
Schemaless, document-oriented database, uses JSON as the document Representation and provides a simple RESTfull API. Written in Erlang, with concurrency in mind. Recently adopted by the Apache Foundation incubator.
- Io language
Prototyped Object-Oriented programming language. Minimum syntax, litle enough to fit in my head :), and lot better than Smalltalk syntax. Supports differential inheritance. Growing library, with Unit Test already, for example.
- Haiku OS
Still in pre-alpha state, but already usable. Free software Revival of BeOS, binary compatible with R5. I will post some screenshots as soon as I get Firefox running on it.
