By arungupta on May 21, 2008
is a sponsor of Enterprise
2.0 Conference (Jul 9-12, 2008, Boston).
The conference has regular tutorials, keynotes and general sessions, multiple tracks and pavilion (even a free pavilion pass). They also have Launch Pad that allow companies developing new social networking products to compete for the chance to present them in front of the largest audience in the Enterprise 2.0 community.
There are 8 companies in Round 2 and each one of them has submitted a video highlighting their offering. One of the semi-finalists is Project Socialsite - an offering from Sun Microsystems.
Project SocialSite makes it easy to add social networking features to your existing web applications or community sites (running on Java, PHP or Ruby) and turn it into an OpenSocial container. It comes with a comprehensive and highly scalable implementation of social graph, integrates seamlessly with existing identity and authentication mechanism, make it easy to plug into existing directory server or other user management systems.
The submitted video shows how easy it is add social networking features (such as Profile, Friends and Activity) to MediaWiki by adding simple tags. We hope you like the functionality shown and give us a higher rating to help us qualify for finals :)
