CollabNet, a leader in cloud-based Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) solutions for agile software delivery at scale, today announced that more than 1 million software professionals have registered for useful content, open source downloads, community-based idea sharing and collaboration, cloud development, webinars and training through the company’s Open CollabNet community. As the creator of the open source Subversion source code management (SCM) tool, and a pioneer in enabling enterprise collaborative software delivery, CollabNet continues to provide a range of resources that promote collaboration, software agility and productivity from small teams to global 70,000-seat, agile-at-scale instances.
“One of the great things about working in the collaborative software development industry is the level of interaction we’ve had with the community ranging from open source committers to enterprises that have the most sophisticated IT strategies and implementations in the world,” said Bill Portelli, CollabNet CEO. “CollabNet has had the pleasure of advancing cloud-based software development and delivery practices with these global experts and organizations since we introduced enterprise grade software development in the cloud to the market in 1999. Having 1 million developers and practitioners register through the Open CollabNet community reflects this collaboration by our company with the industry.”
Launched in 2008, OpenCollabNet provides access to software downloads, user communities, open source projects and industry thought leadership content. One of the strongest open source contributors in the software development industry, CollabNet supports a variety of projects. Individuals and organizations turn to CollabNet for Subversion and SubversionEdge servers, Subversion and Git clients, as well as CollabNet’s popular GitEye desktop client (for Git). These and other SCM related downloads together average more than 450,000 downloads per week. The Open CollabNet community site includes industry level conversations started by more than 10,000 authors. Current open source projects hosted by CollabNet include SubversionEdge, AnkhSVN, GitEye, CollabNet Connector Network and CollabNet Desktops (Eclipse Edition, VisualStudio Edition and Outlook Edition).
“The level of sharing and collaboration across the CollabNet community is strong and continues to grow,” said Portelli. “The amount of videos, white papers and other forms of helpful content available is also very popular for developers and organizations looking to learn best practices from industry experts at CollabNet.”
