What Google Wants

Everyone (on the net) is now googlist. And we’re all continued to use its service, happily and quietly.

I am a programmer, it’s natural to spelunking on what’s programming skills they’re need. So I started a minor survey (read: gak penting) several days since Google Birthday last week.

I’m not surprised with my findings:

(Programming skills, count)

  • Phyton (99)

  • C++ (92)

  • Java (93)

  • Perl (72)

  • JavaScript (45)

  • PHP (23)

  • C# (5)

  • Ajax (3)

  • Ruby (1)

Phyton is powerful language, IMHO, as powerful as Java. C++ is still the true portable language of all time. JavaScript and Ruby I think slowly will take the places, as the advent of AJAX (Google Suggest and Google Maps, in particular).

AFAIK, AdSense is backend with Java Struts. I don’t know, AdSense code smells like struts… hehe..

Are they magic numbers?
No, they are not. I’m using a very simple method to dig the number :
First, I screenscraping those pages 3 level depth using HTTrack Website Copier. I’ve scheduled it to update daily (04:00 AM EST+7), and running simple text analysis upon its results everyday.

The software itself is somewhat portions of my real project. I changed several keywords and running it in debug mode (call me pragmatic, I don’t care). It’s simple, only combination of regex, SGMLReader, a bit working knowledge of IR, C#, good sense of humor, and of course my fellow padwan : patience.

Other skills they’re need might be XML (XML technologies such as XML, XSLT, DTD), and Regex. Both, I think are a must for every single programmer who lives on earth. Dispatch yourself a good know-how of XML and Regex. Resistance is futile.

If you proficient in all technology that Google wants, and you have killer business instinct (they’re not teach you this instinct, not even at business school) then apply to Google you must not. Build your own “google”, instead.

Ah, it is almost 10 PM, what I need now is cold shower :)
