Is there a good discussion site for books like this? ( Since I will probably not read anything, let alone the entire book before it is vanished from the HN frontpage.)

> 17. Sendmail

I'm very curious about the content of this chapter, given that Sendmail's deficiencies resulted in so many alternate MTAs being written (qmail, postfix, exim, etc.).

-----


Err... Is this somehow news? AOSA has been around for quite a while.

-----


Check it out, there is a new book in the series. POSA. The Performance of Open Source Applications.

-----


I didn't know about this, and it's awesome that it's posted here. I'll definitely go through it.

-----


Is there something new here? I feel like this book was there for a while now

-----


The third book was released earlier this month. Since then, nothing new.

-----


I had come across it a few days ago too, and I am currently going through a couple of chapters. Not for the faint-hearted, or for cursory reading.

unless you already work in cloud/mobile, then it's like a comic book. Particularly humorous, imho, is this page: http://aosabook.org/en/posa/secrets-of-mobile-network-perfor..., which doesn't even mention any of the mobile-specific CDNs or telecom infrastructure in any depth other than "Core Network" which "In practice this delay is generally neglible" aka, nothing to see here.

-----


Could you make any recommendations on other items worth reading?

-----


Read up on Warp.

-----


Are you talking about the PBX or something else?

-----


Good job, Tavish

-----


Thanks! And a whole lot more congratulations are owed to the kind folks who wrote the words that go inside the book, and those who helped with copyediting. :-)

-----


Yeah, way to go!!
