The Architecture of Open Source Applications Volume I

Authors of 25 open source projects explain how their software is structured.

The authors of twenty-five open source applications explain how their software is structured, and why. What are each program's major components? How do they interact? And what did their builders learn during their development? In answering these questions, the contributors to this book provide unique insights into how they think.

If you are a junior developer, and want to learn how your more experienced colleagues think, this book is the place to start. If you are an intermediate or senior developer, and want to see how your peers have solved hard design problems, this book can help you too.

25 open source applications:

Asterisk; Audacity; The Bourne-Again Shell; Berkeley DB; CMake; Eclipse; Graphite; The Hadoop Distributed File System; Continuous Integration; Jitsi; LLVM; Mercurial; The NoSQL Ecosystem; Python Packaging; Riak and Erlang/OTP; Selenium WebDriver; Sendmail; SnowFlock; SocialCalc; Telepathy; Thousand Parsec; Violet; VisTrails; VTK; Battle For Wesnoth.
