NASCIO Award for NetBeans Platform Legislative Software

Two days ago, 23 October 2012, the Kansas Legislative Information System and Services (KLISS) was awarded the 2012 NASCIO Award for Open Government at the NASCIO annual State IT Recognition awards.

KLISS is developed by Propylon in partnership with the executive and legislative branches of the Kansas Government involving a complete overhaul of the Legislature's IT systems.

This video gives an overview of the system:

In other good news, Propylon has recently announced that it will work with the Indiana Legislative Services Agency to implement a complete Legislative Enterprise Architecture.

For details on the NetBeans Platform angle to all this, in addition to watching the movie above, see Legislative Software on NetBeans. And note that Java developers with NetBeans Platform experience are welcome to apply to work at Propylon.

And congratulations to the Propylon team!

The focus of this blog is mostly on NetBeans (a development tool primarily for Java programmers), with an occasional reference to NetBeans, and sometimes diverging to topics relating to NetBeans. And then there are days when NetBeans is mentioned, just for a change.
