Episode 35: Three Incubator projects

August 15, 2007

I’ve been sitting on these interviews for a while due to the busyness of life, and I’ve finally gotten around to editing them and putting together an episode.

At ApacheCon Amsterdam, I was able to get a little more information on XAP, Lokahi, and Tuscany, and those interviews are finally available here. Sorry for the delay on these — life has been a little complicated of late, and David has been pretty much holding Feathercast together on his own.

You can listen to the interview here (21MB, 15 minutes)

Episode 22: OFBiz

December 6, 2006

The OFBiz project has been incubating for some time and while at ApacheCon US 2006 I took the opportunity to talk with J Aaron Farr (one of the projects mentors) about it. Since recording the interview the incubator have voted to graduate OFBiz into a new top level project, so I caught up with Si Chen and David Jones from the project via Skype to get some more information.

Congratulations to OFBiz!
