What is Your Project on Kenai.com?
By Sharat Chander on Apr 27, 2009
But what about your project? Are you getting the level of community interest and participation that you need? If not, there's some steps YOU can take to stir interest. First and foremost, provide as many details as you can on your project page. How do you do this? Simple, from your "MyPage" click on "Manage" for any project you're administering and fill in information. Make sure you have a solid project description; briefly outline what you're trying to accomplish, what technologies are involved, if you want developers' participation, etc. Also, fill out the tag field with as many terms that map to your project; this will make it easier for interested parties to find your project from the project tag cloud.

Also, if you want more exposure for your project, let us know! Send us an e-mail requesting us to highlight your project on Kenai.com's featured project section. Or perhaps we can reference it on our Kenai Blog, in our Kenai Facebook community, or a mention on our Kenai Twitter voice. Simply send your request to: kenai-admin<at>Sun<dot>com.
Furthermore, if you have the time, we can interview you on our Kenai BlogTalk Radio show! Again, just drop us a note, and we'll coordinate directly with you.
Lastly, socialize your project at Kenai.com through your social networks! Blog a lot, blog often! Twitter about it (use #projectkenai so it shows up in our feed, as well - more exposure for you!).
Let us help you make your code grow at Kenai.com!
