Open Source Jumpstart #GDCOSJ1

Yesterday's GDC Open Source Jumpstart was amazing!

Thanks to all the open source projects that came:

  1. Apache Aries
  2. Apache Harmony
  3. Apache Tomcat
  4. Apache Tuscany
  5. Apache Wookie
  6. Citrine
  7. Ikasan
  8. Impala
  9. PHP

You guys worked so hard all day!

Thanks to all the students that came along and fixed bugs, wrote tests and documentation. Well done! I can't believe how far people came (from Edinburgh in one case) - you represent the future of software development and it was great to meet you.

Thanks to IBM for letting us use their wonderful Southbank location and to the IBM Innovation Centre in Hursley for providing the food. The Innovation Centre have some great (free) resources for students, if any of you missed the links, here they are again:

  1. Mydeveloperworks - all sorts of resources for creating groups, wikis etc
  2. Student portal - competitions, stuff about jobs etc

Finally - thanks to Barry Cranford for being a continual positive inspiration and to the rest of the GDC organising committee for pulling yesterday's event together.

Yes, I really think we might do this again!
