Boston Azure Project nearly ready to be published

Jun 23, 2010 at 4:12 AM
We are getting there..
  1. Source Code has been Uploaded (Joan plans to verify tomorrow)
  2. Project summary page has been cleaned up
  3. Several folks have been added as Coordinators
  4. A License has been selected (BSD) - please comment if you have opinions

It would also be nice to have a few more ideas listed in the Issue Tracker - hopefully everyone can put in a couple that might come to mind for you.

What else would you like to see done before this is made visible to the general public?

Bill, I ended up downloading the SVN client. I tried TEE, but one part of it is a plugin for eclipse and the stand alone client requires a jre... so I wouldn't recommend as a first try. I was able to check out the source and build once the sln file was there. I even made a code change to fix the exception on the Events page and checked it in. I can give a 2 minute demo on how SVN works and put up a documentation page for it. Joan

The project has been published - so it is now visible to the public. So it begins...

I have a VS2010 that has TFS client. I used the TFS credentials given in the source control section. I successfully downloaded and built the bostonAzure solution.

Thanks bosazure.

I also visited the site anonymously and accessed the source - it can be downloaded as a ZIP file without even logging in! I downloaded it and was able to run the application successfully this way. 

So we've now proven three ways to access it - TFS, SVN Client, and ZIP File. We are good to go!

May be we should create a topic in the discusion group called getting from "here" to "there" bbased on Bills comment: "How would YOU recommend getting from "here" to "there" where here=today's hacked together non-azure site, and there=well designed uber-azurized site."

One suggestion we discussed was for today's meeting to describe the architecture and technologies of the current Boston Azure site. Describe how to utilize CodePlex to achieve our goal of migrating to a “well designed uber-azurized site” . For example, how to leverage the discussion forum to solicite ideas, express opinions and concerns. Then open up for discussions to solicit ideas from the user group and propose ideas.

I am sure we will get more ideas for getting from "here" to "there" after today’s meeting. I am really excited about this project.

I have downloaded the source code for the current Boston Azure Website from CodePlex and have successfully built and ran the project. Events could not be listed because the database was not available understandably. Instead I see “Database not currently available” per Joan’s explanation above.
