"Three things that could use improvement: 1) Some classes have strange hours.  My ICS 332 class meets Thursdays from 6:00 to 8:15 pm.  That's pretty inconvenient. 2) I feel that many classes would benefit from labs.  I realize…"

I think it would also be a step toward better integration and synergy between the UH and local tech community. For example, there's a talk coming up on the use of Facebook in the 2009 election that I think would be of interest to techhui people.
I agree. We just added an RSS feed for ICS News & Announcements to the front page between Forums and Groups. We also added "Facebook Use in the 2008 Presidential Election" to the calendar and featured the event. If there are events of particular importance you want to feature just shoot me an email. We can place them in the event calendar and give them special mention in the "Site Info, Announcements & Things To Do" column.

1) I'd be very interested in your perspective on how the ICS M.S. program could better suit the local community:

http://www.techhui.com/forum/topics/what-would-make-the-uh-ics

I'm a big advocate of teaching foundations and theory. Software and hardware come and go and usually can be picked up quickly. Learning how systems work, art theory, the sociology/psychology of UI, that's priceless.


(2) In one of your previous postings, you spoke about friends going on tour with the Dead. I happen to play occasionally with a local Grateful Dead style jam band called Shakadown Street:

Do you play music? Would you like to come jam with us sometime?

I would, but I'm on the Big Island

Hi Philip,

A partner of ours, Atlassian, has been building and acquiring a lot of tools in the code collaboration space including monitoring and review management. These include FishEye - for monitoring source code, Clover - for improving test quality, productivity, & project integration of code coverage, and Crucible for reviewing code changes, making comments, & recording outcomes. The tools are free for open source projects. If you have folks working on Hackystat and Jupiter, they may want to take a look for research purposes.

Hi, Philip. Nice to see you here. We still need to get together for lunch one of these days!

Welcome Philip! I was just reading your blog entry on Social Networks for Software Engineers. Let me know if you have ideas for Tech Hui. We are planning to develop some custom features.

I just added Fortress to the language list.
