The middle of the month is, as usual, the time when we send our donations to open source projects and charity organizations.
This month, we planned to support the Sphinx Search project, an open source seach engine that we recently used when we were developing a new version of the food blog aggregator site ZPierwszegoTloczenia.pl. However, it turned out the developers of Sphinx do not accept donations, but they suggested we could help the project by purchasing the book “Introduction to Search with Sphinx”, published by O’Reilly.
We did as they suggested and bought a copy of the book for our team, and a couple more to give away to other web developers that we know who might be interested in the subject.
As always, besides supporting an open source project, we’re also making a donation to a charity organization. This month we’re donating to the Animal Shelter in Pabianice, more specifically – we’re virtually adopting one of their dogs, a small fellow by the name of Kiwi. Stay strong, Kiwi!
