Tech Talk: John Sirois, Bill Farner & Brian Wickman
Twitter-commons: libraries for python and the jvm (and a build system - why not)
Twitter-commons has quietly existed in the open since May 2011 but has only recently gained some more visible adoption by companies like Airbnb and Foursquare. The libraries contained within underlie efforts to bring key portions of Google's (past) infrastructure to Twitter and the open source community. We'll talk a little bit about the larger vision of the commons polyglot monolithic source code repository and its build system and then highlight some of the key apis supported in both python and java.
