May Open HP webOS Update. Enyo speakers at Fluent conference in SF.
The Open webOS project Blog has posted an update about what are they doing at this time on the webOS Open source project, how is Enyo moving ahead, adding new members to the team and keeping September as the target for Open webOS 1.0 release.
May Open webOS Update.
This month the Open webOS team is hard at work. Although there aren’t any scheduled code releases for May we are working hard in three areas.
1. We are still on target for the September release of Open webOS 1.0. and growing our relationship with the community, including our continued collaboration with the WebOS internals team. More news on that to follow next month. We were also delighted to be featured in LinuxPro magazine for the Isis browser we released last month. http://www.linuxpromagazine.com/Online/News/Isis-Browser-Code-Released
3. In addition to the Enyo open source engineering effort, our cloud services organization is beginning development on a set of Enyo API’s. While we don’t yet have specific functionality to share or a timeline for delivering these new services, we want to let you know that we’re thinking creatively about how all of webOS’s capabilities can come together to add value to the developer experience.
To make all this happen, we are adding more members to our team. If you would like to contribute to the success of Open webOS (and get paid for it) please check out our job listings. And of course, all are welcome to contribute to the code through Github.
As we move into summer, expect us to increase our outreach out more and more, as we present our vision for Open webOS and Enyo to the world. This week I am attending the Open Source Business conference in San Francisco and we are busy planning other events that we will be attending. Local meetups are continuing and I’m looking forward to attending the Chicago WebOS meetup on June 3rd and speaking at the Nodejs meetup on June 19th.
Exciting times are ahead for Open WebOS!
