Community Source needs you! The Apereo Foundation fosters community source projects. To support this role the foundation has a dedicated member of staff as the CLE Community Coordinator, Neal Caidin. Neal promotes the needs of the Sakai CLE community. In this presentation Neal Caidin and Alan Berg, a member of the Technical Coordination Council2 (TCC), explore how to participate fully in the community. This presentation will act as a gentle introduction to the well trodden paths to community involvement. Please come prepared with your questions!
Alan Berg Bsc. MSc. PGCE, works within the Innovation Work Group at the University of Amsterdam's Informatersingscentruim. He is currently interested in Learning Analytic's and generally getting stuff done. Alan has also been a lead developer at the Central Computer Services at the University of Amsterdam since 1998. He is also a member of the Technical Coordination Council, Sakai fellow and was once a Quality Assurance Director for Sakai.
In his spare time, he is a technical consultant, writes articles, book reviews and has authored three books, two of which were with the Sakai community, the third on Continuous Integration. Alan has a degree, two masters and a teaching qualification. In previous incarnations, he was a technical writer, an Internet/Linux course writer, and a science teacher. He likes to get his hands dirty with the building and gluing of systems. He remains agile by playing computer games with his sons who (sadly) consistently beat him physically, mentally and morally at least twice in any given day.
