Over on the YDN blog we have news of a couple items. I won't say a lot about them here, since I wrote the first one and I'd just be duplicating information in either case...
- Open Source Distributed Computing: Yahoo's Hadoop Support begins to lay out the story behind Hadoop and Yahoo's involvement in the project. Hadoop is an Open Source grid computing system that's making it easier and easier to build large clusters of data-crunching servers.
- YSlow Release on YDN talks about the release of YSlow, a kick-ass Firefox extension that helps to analyze slow pages and recommend ways to improve performance.
Both of these are big news for completely different crowds of people and both are another step in sharing the technology that we use internally at Yahoo every day. Check 'em out.
Expect to hear more about both Hadoop and YSlow on the Yahoo! Developer Network.
