Project Kenai Beta
By jacki decoster on Sep 16, 2008
As I'm sure you noticed, last week, Sun announced the expansion of our
xVM portfolio with Sun xVM Server software & Sun xVM Ops Center 2.0.
But what you might not have noticed is that the first source code bundle for Sun xVM Server software is hosted at Project Kenai.
"What the heck is Project Kenai?" you say?
Project Kenai is a place for the global
developer community to freely host their open source projects and
code. It also allows developers to easily find people that share their
same interests so they can collaborate on projects.
Project Kenai is currently in beta and anyone can sign up to become a member of the community. But during this beta, only select individuals who receive an invitation will be able to create a new project.
Right now, Project Kenai offers an integrated stack of collaboration services (e.g. source code management, bug tracking, wiki, forums, mailing lists, project and developer profiles) enabling the buildout of developer communities. As Project Kenai evolves and as Sun receives feedback from the developer community during the beta, additional components will be added.
Interested? Want to learn more? Come explore the site and let the Project Kenai team know what you think.
Also, if you're attending Web 2.0 Expo in NYC this week - stop by Sun booth #1701, say hi to Sharat & JB & have them give you a tour of Project Kenai.
For more on Project Kenai - check out this interview Tim Bray did with Nick Sieger - one of the lead engineers and
Simon Phipps also offers his perspective.
