I’m Not Dead Yet

So I’ve been slack in posting to my blog, for any number of reasons, but I’ve been busy busy with lots of crazy stuff.

First, I’ve been spearheading the OpenNMS involvement in Summer of Code. Aside from one unfortunate incident things have been going well. I’m really looking forward to getting to know our students and seeing what they can come up with. It will be a learning experience for all of us. =)

We’re also starting to gear up towards another beta on the road to OpenNMS 1.6. We’ve already got a bunch more bugs finished off, but also plenty to do still.

If you haven’t noticed, my blog looks a little bit different. I’d been limping along with pretty much unchanged templates from upgrade after upgrade of Movable Type since version 3.1 or so. It’s a testament to their software that everything’s worked swimmingly without any major surgery for all of that time, but I’ve been itching to take advantage to the much cleaner HTML and CSS they’re using in newer default templates, and other spiffy features which I have not been able to . . . → Read More: I’m Not Dead Yet

OpenNMS is part of the Google Summer of Code 2008!

I am honored, giddy, and totally stoked to announce that OpenNMS was accepted into the Google Summer of Code 2008!

The student application process starts next Monday, March 24th, so there’s still time to get prepped, and suggest some ideas for projects on our wiki, or even get a head start on getting involved in the community and working on code.

Thanks again for everyone who’s offered to mentor, come up with ideas, and volunteered their time!

In other news, we’re gearing up for a 1.6 beta1 release hopefully sometime this week. We have a list of bugs we’d like to knock out before the beta, but many of those will probably fall through to the next beta milestone. Look forward to a release, there’s a lot of good stuff getting cleaned up and fixed since 1.3.11!
