Overall, the Apple WWDC was somewhat underwhelming. However, The Next Web reports on an interesting tidbit about Siri opening up to all third-party apps. Chef released Habitat a new open source project for automating applications. I have not dug into it yet, so I can’t comment too much, but it is good to see the operations companies trying to push automation further up the lifecycle. Ayende @ Rahien has another excellent post in the database internals series. This one is about B+Trees, and is well worth the read.

As always, enjoy today’s items, and please participate in the discussions on these sites.
