Shortly about read booksDuring my vacation in March, I finished The Art of the Metabobject Protocol, that was in my reading queue for a long time. This book gives understanding how CLOS was designed, how concrete solutions was selected, etc.
In April I read 2 books from Manning (they asked for review): Tika in Action и ManifoldCF in Action. First wasn't very interesting for me - I'm working in this branch for a long time, plus I already used tika in my projects, but I think, that book will interesting for peoples who will need to extract meta-data & text from files in different formats. And second book was very interesting - I bought it when it was released as MEAP, but I hadn't time to start read it. This book describes ManifoldCF - extensible framework for work with different content repositories, from which you can fetch information for indexing, or similar processing. This framework is very interesting for me, and I hope, that I'll use it in one of my projects.
