Hallway Technologies has had a busy summer! In addition to HQ moving from Atlanta, GA to Portland, OR our teammates participated in the Jasig-Sakai conference, the Open Source Bridge conference, and OS CON 2012. Michelle and Carl volunteered at two of the three conferences serving on planning and social committees.
Sakai OAE 1.3.0 released in June and 1.4.0 is slated to release by early August.
Hallway Technologies' headquarters moved to Portland, Oregon in May 2012. We are excited to become part of Portland's growing open-source community and look forward to building relationships in our new city.
We have already become volunteers with the Open Source Bridge which is hosted in Portland each year.
Hallway Tech is pleased to share that one of our community contributions is becoming part of the core Sakai CLE project.
In August 2011, the Sakai 2 Technical Coordination Committee (TCC) succeeded in passing a vote to include Mail Sender as a core tool in the Sakai CLE 2.9 release. Mail Sender began as a Georgia Tech contrib project to refine the user interface and functionality of Mailtool.
Carl Hall of Hallway Tech and Seth Theriault of Columbia University have been maintaining Mail Sender for last two years and the project has enjoyed continued improvements in quality and new features with two releases, 1.6.4 and 1.7.0, slated for November.
Hallway Technologies is pleased to announce the addition of Brian Young to our development team. Brian comes to Hallway Tech with a ten-year history in UI design and client/server software.
Brian will be leading all UI efforts and driving forward Hallway Technologies’ Drupal based projects. We are delighted to have yet another well-rounded, cross-trained developer on board.
Hallway Tech is proud to announce that our co-owner and lead architect Carl Hall has been named a 2011 Sakai Fellow.
Sakai Fellows are selected by a small committee for their special volunteer service to the Sakai community.
We are thrilled to have one of our own singled out for this honor and look forward to celebrating with our friends at Sakai Conference 2011 in Los Angeles.
