Google gets to the Source

Filed under: Blogroll,Technology — janats @ 7:31 pm

Like thousands of other consulting divisions, our consultancy division uses open-source code where pertinant on projects. We find it more than interesting then that Google has launched Google Code Search .

This places it into direct competition with other coding engines such as Krugle and Koders . There is also the publisher O’Reilly which lets users search through its bookfor examples of code (which arguably is more valuable as more explanation of what the code does and is for is available).

We think that not only Google, but its competitors also, will have to come with a much better mechanism for code search and code repository exploration for this service to become really useful. Sites such as SourceForge are much more useful for the serious developer and consulting division in this respect.
