This year, Jive will be hosting the OpenSocial State of the Union working session at our Portland office. OpenSocial is the key technology behind our apps framework and this will be where we'll be defining some of the "next big things" that will work themselves into the specification. We'll have broad industry participation from the likes of IBM, SugarCRM, and many others.


We'll also be celebrating with the Apache Community another great year of moving the social web forward through open source at the Apache Shindig / Rave "Beer Forge". Jive a contributor to a number of open source projects, including Apache Shindig, the core underlying code of the apps framework. This will be a great way to meet and network with the developers that are building some of the great code that powers Jive and a number of the other social platforms. If you happen to be in Portland on July 17th, then come and join Jive and the OpenSocial and Apache communities for a great evening!


I hope to see you there!
