Web 2.0 Session at NDS
Hi NDS architects,
Thanks for joining my web 2.0 seminar, I had a great time and hope you did as well.
You can find most of the presentation content in hebrew at my hebrew blog, seminar slides are linked bellow.
I’ll end with some questions I didn’t know or didn’t have the time to elaborate on:
How effective are google ad words?
You can find info at AdWords site success stories section though it’s not exactly impartial , general statistics about online advertising and ROI can be found in grabstats which also includes links to the original reports.
Where can I find firefox & add-ins ?
Can Hadoop or F# parallelize my algorithms automatically ?
This question is divided into several parts :
1. Frameworks Hadoop and frameworks alike are prone to work in parallel but you (as the system architect or developer) need to identify the part that can be parallelized and pass it to the framework with the map and reduce functions
2. Languages F#, Scala and other functional languages parallelize your code automatically.
3. Functional constructs PLINQ and other functional constructs inside non funcional languages are not parallel by default, when they support parallel computation it’s usually with using an implicit directive such as myWorker.AsParallel = true;
What’s Yahoo WDK ?
Thanks again for a great session,
