Writing Clean, Testable, High Quality Code in Python
Removal and Deprecation of some Google APIs
Following the standard deprecation period – often, as long as three years – some of the deprecated APIs will be shut down. The rest have no scheduled date for shutdown, but won’t get any new features. The policy for each deprecated API is specified in its documentation.
These APIs are now deprecated but have no scheduled shutdown date: Code Search API, Diacritize API, Feedburner APIs, Finance API, Power Meter API, Sidewiki API, Wave API
Wherever possible, the documentation includes suggested alternatives designed to help you achieve similar functionality — whether it’s a new version or related offering. We hope these alternatives, along with lengthy deprecation periods, will help minimize the impact and allow us to focus on building great products together.
More info and links to APIs in the announcement.

Calipso – NodeJS CMS
Calipso is an open source CMS project started by Clifton Cunningham. It runs on NodeJS and MongoDB and aims to be a high performance, extendible content publishing platform. Although usable, it is still in early stages of development and Cunningham is looking for more developers. The installation guide will help you get up and running with Calipso quickly and the module guide will give you an idea about the architecture of Calipso.
