So if you haven't used Project Kenai before, you really ought to check it out. Especially if you're a disgruntled user of java.net. Seriously. Here's some impressive stats about Project Kenai.
- They've increased their membership by over 1,000 members in a little over a week's time!
- As of today, they're sitting at 7,206 members and 521 public projects. Let's see if they can we hit 10,000 members before JavaOne!
More cool facts below.
PROJECT KENAI INFORMATION
Project Kenai, is Sun's developer "cloud" onramp. Having gone live back in September of 2008, we have exceeded over 7,000 members and surpassed 500 hosted open source projects. Currently, Kenai offers an integrated suite of productivity services for developers to host their open source code/projects as well as connect with peers of like mind (with additional cloud features to be released in the future); today's features include:
- Evolving integration with NetBeans
- Source Code Management (Subversion, Mercurial, and/or Git)
- Issue Tracking (Jira or Bugzilla)
- Mailing Lists
- Download facility for documents
Anyone can join by going to http://kenai.com. And if parties are ready to start hosting a project, they simply need to send an invitation request with a description of their project to: kenai-admin-AT-sun-DOT-com.
I have started a couple of Sun SPOT projects on Kenai, and hope we can migrate our existing projects over there at some point. The interface is clean and the service is fast and responsive. I love it! Try it out today!
