An outcome of the recent trip by Kohsuke to Japan was last week's
Adoption Story with
one of the largest internet companies in the world - their site
is currently ranked by Alexa as
and #5 in Japan.
The Adoption Story
and the detailed Questionnaire with Rakuten's Chief Engineer (Chihiro Miura)
provide more details,
including their development OS (Debian), deployment OS (RHEL), database (MySQL 5),
frameworks (iBatis, Struts, Spring), and IDE
Rakuten's use of GF is small but the first deployments are always the
hardest and hopefully others will follow.
Japan has a great community of developers and I'm looking forward to our growth in that geography.
