June 2011 Newsletter
Dear OW2 Members, dear All,
The truth of OW2 is in its code base and its people. Technology has no frontiers; this is specially true with software and the Internet, and our code base is indeed global. But behind all this there are the people. The software might be global, but there would be no OW2 code base without our 1200 committers and no OW2 without our members. Real people, living real lives in real places. Mailing lists, teleconferencing, instant messaging help create a global organization but they are mere tools that will not replace face-to-face contacts.
This spring, OW2 is gearing up its presence across several continents. Whether through our events or our new members, OW2 is increasingly active in Europe, Africa, China and North and South America. Our highlights include our OW2 Day in Berlin last month, our booth and talks at FISL in Porto Alegre in June, our Bay Area OW2 meetup and presence at OSCON in Portland in July and the China Open Source Week in Beijing and Nanjing in October.
OW2 is a global organization but our real assets are our members who think globally and act locally and we wouldn't thrive without their contributions.
Thank you for your on-going support,
We are pleased to welcome two new Corporate Members to OW2:
ActiveEon: INRIA spin-off and long-time supporter of OW2, this company provides expertise and commercial support to the OW2 ProActive project.
Objis: a provider of training services on OW2 projects and the first corporate member with serious links with Africa, they open a new continent to the OW2 membership.
We are pleased to announce that the OW2 Chameleon project has been upgraded to "mature" status.
