In case you missed it, FluidDB has (finally) launched. I wont be blogging here about FluidDB or Fluidinfo, though will continue to post personal things and of course random bits of code that seem interesting (and small) enough to warrant mention. I have yet another Twisted snippet coming up, though I’m not sure when I’ll get there.
We’re all exhausted and thrilled to have FluidDB out the door. I wont try to describe the feelings, except to say that it’s all incredibly exciting, and that I haven’t been getting much sleep recently. The reaction in the programmer community has been astounding: there are 9 client-side libraries already written (with more on the way), there are tools, there’s a FluidDB Explorer, and little apps are now starting to pop up. We couldn’t be happier. You can see a list of those things here.
To find out more about FluidDB, here are your best choices:
- The FluidDB blog. Recent posts describing FluidDB are:
- The FluidDB high-level overview goes into the information model of FluidDB, its permissions system, and the query language.
- The FluidDB-discuss mailing list is a great place to ask questions, and has already seen some detailed discussion on spam and the FluidDB about tag.
- If you’re a programmer looking to learn about FluidDB, the #1 thing you should do is join the #fluidDB IRC channel on irc.freenode.net. There are many people there learning about FluidDB, exchanging tips, and writing new libraries, tools, and apps. You can also read the API documentation.
Thanks for reading along! The real journey is probably only just beginning…
