If you have an Android device, make sure to download the 'Nethack Encyclopedia', my first Android app which I released last weekend. I've only just recently have been getting into Nethack myself, but have been having a blast. I wanted a way to lookup
spoilers information when I don't have an internet connection (being from Upstate NY I go camping often).
The app is free and I released the source code for anyone to modify. If you notice that things are <ahem> less than polished, this is a feature not a bug (I swear!). I came up with a long TODO list which I'm going to use to drive a community workshop series on open source development @ the Guild. The series will be free for members (a modest fee will be charged to non-members to help support the group) and what I aim to do is develop the app on the spot. Any contributers will get their name in the changelog and I will periodically push updates with contributers code to the Android market. It should be a fun way to develop a geeky open source project in the 'cuse!
Be sure to check the SIG blog for more updates and other happenings
Next weekend you will be able to find me at the 2nd annual Free and Open Source Software Conference in Philadelphia, PA. I attended the first one last year at RIT in Rochester NY and had such a great time that I decided to return this time around to present!
I will be talking about Aeolus, which is an open source, vendor-agnostic cloud management framework that allows you to deploy and monitor instances on any cloud using the same tooling from any language. I will be discussing some of the details of the framework and how we interface w/ various cloud providers, some open and some proprietary.
Be sure to check out the project, there has been alot of great progress recently, including support for more cloud providers (ec2, rhev-m, vmware vsphere, condor-cloud, and more), better and simplified ui and tooling, and more integration with other upstream components. We are working on finishing up the Aeolus/Rails 3 migration and are pushing the aeolus components into Fedora for F16 to ease adoption, so look out for those soon!
