Yahoo & Open Source

Welcome to the new Yahoo Engineering blog. Yahoo has always had a deep seated interest in various Open Source technologies. Many people do not know this, but Yahoo has supported many great Open Source tools over the years.

var thingsWeLike = [
    'Apache',
    'MySQL',
    'FreeBSD',
    'Linux',
    'PHP',
    'OpenStack',
    'NodeJS',
    'and many more'
];
console.log(thingsWeLike);

var thingsWeGiveAway = [
    'YUI',
    'Mojito',
    'Pure',
    'Hadoop',
    'Tons of Node modules',
    'and many others'
];
console.log(thingsWeGiveAway);

In addition to using these open technologies, Yahoo strives to give back to this community as much as we can.

Beginning now, this blog will be frequented by real Yahoo Engineers discussing and showing off the hard core way we use this technology. Our posts will range from CSS tips to down and dirty data on performance and debugging of tools in our production stack.

We hope that you enjoy them and maybe even learn a thing or two!
