What every software engineer should know about search
Want to build or improve a search experience? Start here.

Ask a software engineer: “How would you add search functionality to your product?” or “How do I build a search engine?” You’ll probably immediately hear back something like: “Oh, we’d just launch an ElasticSearch cluster. Search is easy these days.”

But is it? Numerous current products still have suboptimal search experiences. Any true search expert will tell you that few engineers have a very deep understanding of how search engines work, knowledge that’s often needed to improve search quality.

Even though many open source software packages exist, and the research is vast, the knowledge around building solid search experiences is limited to a select few. Ironically, searching online for search-related expertise doesn’t yield any recent, thoughtful overviews.

ongoing by Tim Bray · What Android Is
Android is not a specification, or a distribution in the traditional Linux sense. It’s not a collection of replaceable components. Android is a chunk of software that you port to a device.

The Fish House by Guz Architects | Designerscouch
The Fish House designed by Guz Architects is a work of beauty and true genius. It was designed to blend with nature. This luxurious home features natural ventilation for Singapore’s hot and humid climate, a green roof with thin bendable photovoltaic panels that supply energy to the whole house, and large windows. The undulation of the curved roof mimics the ocean waves.

Starbucks Does Not Use Two-Phase Commit - Enterprise Integration Patterns
In summary we can see that the real world is often asynchronous. Our daily lives consists of many coordinated, but asynchronous interactions (reading and replying to e-mail, buying coffee etc). This means that an asynchronous messaging architecture can often be a natural way to model these types of interactions. It also means that often we can look at daily life to help design successful messaging solutions.
