Webmachine is a system for easily and declaratively building well-behaved HTTP applications in Erlang. It is based on a very different execution model than most web frameworks, making it easy to focus on writing the core of your application while also helping you do the harder parts of HTTP right. We will discuss Webmachine's unusual Web programming model, contrast it with prevailing notions in web frameworks, and demonstrate how to quickly build and extend RESTful web applications in Erlang

There's a misconception that WordPress is a blog platform. While that used to be the case, today it is so much more. With the launch of version 3.0, WordPress took a big step towards its CMS siblings, with the ease of managing and development intact. You can build just about any content-based site with WordPress, while maintaining the ease and swift deployment that the platform is known for, cutting costs and offering the a content publishing tool anyone can use.
Thord Daniel Hedengren is addicted to words, which led him to launch his first online newsletter in 1996. He has a career as editor and freelancer both in Sweden and abroad.

When not obsessed with words, Thord and friends are building cool websites using WordPress at Odd Alice.
