One day, some day long ago, I said to Jeroen Dekker, a photographer friend of mine, who was still learning to program at the time: “Programming is talking to the future.” He thought it was a good quote. Coming across it again now, so do I. It's good because it's true, which everybody who has ever debugged some old code—be it their own or someone else's—can attest to.

This link to The Architecture of Open Source Applications book was gathering dust somewhere in my ~/jot directory. In true free software spirit, it is released under a Creative Commons licence and the individual chapters are readable online. Each chapter about the architecture of a particular open source software project is written by the (co-)author of that respective project.
