ObjectsOnClouds.org – An Open Source Project Initiative

The ObjectsOnClouds Open Source Project Initiative (ObjectsOnClouds Project) is a worldwide collaborative effort to develop a set of technologies interworking together as a cloud computing platform. The ObjectsOnClouds Cloud Applications Computing Platform (ObjectsOnClouds Platform) consists of a Java-based server component (The Ionosphere Server), IDEs for building cloud applications (Aurora), platform-native desktop cloud application clients (Gravity), as well as AJAX/web-based cloud applications.

Highlights of some of the select features the ObjectsOnClouds Platform are – real-time multi-user collaborative multi-language content editing, version control with instant push notifications upon content changes, fine-grained permission control for secure access to contents, and much more.

The ObjectsOnClouds Platform is also a complete cloud applications development environment. It features many innovative ideas including a free-form “natural” database which abstracts the complexity of traditional relationship databases. This allows even non-technical people to easily create the next generation of cloud applications very quickly and easily.

The Ionosphere Server – Java-based server component
The Ionoshephere Server is a Java EE/GlassFish-based server component that is central to the ObjectsOnClouds Platform. The RESTful-based Web Services API is built-in for fully connected cloud computing with both the platform-native desktop clients and AJAX/web clients. A Web Server API is also included to serve validated HTML pages for deploying dynamic websites that are fully optimized for search engines.

Aurora for Mac and Windows – IDEs for building cloud applications Aurora is an Integrated Development Environment (IDE) for building cloud applications. As a native application for Mac and Windows, Aurora is designed to take advantage of the platform’s speed and efficiency.

Gravity for Mac, Windows and iPhone – the platform-native clients for cloud applications
Gravity is a technology which allows developers to create platform-native applications – for Mac, Windows and iPhone – all without programming! Cloud developers use Aurora to specify the application elements – menus, windows, content display areas, etc. – and Gravity connects to the cloud to load, assemble and launch the live cloud application as a native platform application. This gives users more choices for cloud computing and even has the potential to make AJAX/web technologies irrelevant.

AJAX/web-based cloud applications IDEs and clients
Advanced AJAX/web programming tools and libraries, web browser-based cloud applications can take advantage of the innovative features that the ObjectsOnClouds Platform has to offer.

Anyone – worldwide – can Join and Participate in this Exciting Project!
The ObjectsOnClouds Project is looking for both professionals and students who have the skills and dedication to open source software development to become involved in creating the next cloud applications platform. Developer membership is free and volunteers can gain worldwide recognition in the forefront of the cloud computing revolution. If you possess skills in project management or have development expertise in Java EE, AJAX, GWT, Mac (including iPhone; using Objective-C and the Cocoa framework) or Windows (using C# and .NET framework), we invite you to become part of this exciting project!

About the ObjectsOnClouds Project
The ObjectsOnClouds Project is an open source initiative to create a set of technologies interworking together as a cloud computing platform. The computing industry is in an exciting revolution moving f r o m desktop-based computing where data are stored on the local computer’s hard drive, to cloud computing where all data and contents are stored on cloud servers. The ObjectsOnClouds Project aims to accelerate this revolution by delivering a complete cloud applications development and computing platform. For more information, please visit the ObjectOnClouds.org website.

Building the next generation of the web data graph where relevant information will be less searched for, but more organically found in context

LinkedWords (LW) is an innovative contextual platform built upon millions of English words and phrases organized into contextual categories, paths, pages and URLs using basic semantics whose mission is to maximize contextual linking among web sites across the Web.

By using strategic linked words to connect millions of web documents and content areas to each other on contextual, meaningful and relevant principles, LW is helping web sites become more visible and be found in context on Web while linked in sites are efficiently sharing targeted communities, users, visitors and reach to potential clients all for free.

LW’s ultimate mission is to build the next generation of the web data graph where relevant information will be less searched for, but more organically found in context while both web sites and common users will then be still relying on, but be less dependent upon today’s search engines.

The Problem it tackles

With the rapid increase of the number of web sites (over 100M*) and so does the cost of indexing and classifying them there will be more and more web information (possibly billions of pages) that will simply be left in the darkness (the invisible web) where neither algorithmic robots nor people will find it.

Having more relevant sites on Web linking to your site is known to be effective for staying visible in tomorrow’s web, but just like with today’s mass search engines already struggling to keep it up with the ever growing amount of information on Web the situation with small to mid level sites seems even worse when trying to have third party sites link back to them, let alone in context. Even for sites that think they are successful in obtaining links from third party places the natural limitations are still in place and unless they are top brands or already popular on web their chances of having more than 100 sites linking back to them are very slim and it would take them years to achieve that.

The Solution

Today’s social networking sites are effectively optimizing your contacts and connections with relevant people in your life, helping you reach to and stay connected with more family members, friends, colleagues and experts from within your professional life, altogether and in a larger scale (you can establish endless number of connections) instead of you doing it on your own. Contextually linked in people are efficiently sharing targeted information, ideas, knowledge, opportunities and reach to potential clients all for free.

LinkedWords does the same for your web site’s information – maximizing the contextual linking for it with relevant sites helping you reach to and stay permanently connected with more content areas with the same context, altogether and in a much larger scale (you can establish endless number of contextual links**) than what you would potentially be able to do on your own. All this results in your website becoming more visible for smart robots and be found in context by humans on web. Contextually linked in sites are efficiently sharing targeted communities, users, visitors and reach to potential clients all for free.

* Data 2006 -> edition.cnn.com/2006/TECH/internet/11/01/100millionwebsites

** Depends on the number of content areas your site has (e.g. a site with 2000 pages can possibly create up to 6000 contextually linked words that can potentially connect that site to 600,000 [6000 linked words result in 6000 contextual listings at LinkedWords and each page with contextual listings at LW can contain 100 relevant listings on average from other sites] relevant content areas across the web while site with 1M pages can possibly have at least 3M contextual links in LW that can potentially connect to virtually endless number of relevant content areas across the web)

QA and testing services aimed to help software companies get maximum return in IT outsourcing projects

Max Garkavtsev, Founder of the software testing company BugHuntress QA Lab, will represent new QA and testing services which are aimed to help software companies get maximum return in IT outsourcing projects.

Max Garkavtsev, Founder of BugHuntress QA Lab, a leading Ukrainian software testing company, has arrived in the USA for a two-month business trip with his main goal to present new testing services for technology and software companies.

Special focus is made on integrated QA/QC services for companies which outsource software development. “The economic slowdown compels to optimize outlay. Outsourcing deals aren’t an exception: you must be sure that every your outsourced dollar works at 100% and you get the quality you paid for,” says Max Garkavtsev.

The situation becomes more acute due to a global character of economic uncertainties. Their reflection on the largest outsourcing locations, coupled with rising IT wages and high staff attrition, hurt the quality of outsourcing delivery in the first place. Max Garkavtsev: “To minimize these outsourcing risks we propose efficient QA ‘tools’ for vendors control and management.”

The core of new BugHuntress services is independent software testing and QA assessment of subcontractors’ work. Independent testing is not only a way “not to put all outsourcing eggs in one basket”. The studies show that due to mitigation of outsourced software development and go-to-market risks the costs of independent software testing can be repaid a hundredfold. In combination with BugHuntress automated testing on the base of Selenium, TestComplete, Mercury LoadRunner and other industry standard tools it is ever more profitable and ensures high defect coverage and testing effectiveness.

To make BugHuntress testing services closer and more convenient for local customers Max Garkavtsev considers the opportunities to establish a new BugHuntress office in California. Along with the New-York office it will help to represent BugHuntress QA Lab on both US coasts.

Max Garkavtsev is planning to hold a number of meetings with interested companies and take part in IT conferences in California. He can be reached at +1(646)498-6441, or through his LinkedIn profile www.LinkedIn.com/in/Garkavtsev.
