The new OpenNTF board has been elected by acclamation.

The following have been elected Member Directors, returned for two years:

Martin Donnelly - IBM
Paul Withers - Intec Systems Ltd
Oliver Busse -  We4IT
Nathan T Freeman - Red Pill Now

They join the Member Directors elected last year, who have one year left on their term:

Serdar Basegmez, Developi Information Systems
Adam Foster, Oval
Jesse Gallagher, I Know Some Guys
Christian G├╝demann, Webgate
Douglas Robinson, Prominic


The following have been elected as Contributor Directors, the term for which is one year:

Padraic Edwards
Nina Wittich
Fredrik Norling

We would like to welcome Nina to the board and we look forward to the year ahead. A number of new initiatives are planned and there will be opportunities for people to get involved over the coming months to help drive the organisation forward.

In the meantime, I would recommend everyone to take a look at the OpenCode4Connections and IBM Connections Customiser contest. The level of technical enablement is something that we have all been working to improve over previous contests, and there are now four videos to allow you to hit the ground running.

Say hello to "OpenCode4Connections.org"

We at OpenNTF.org are excited to launch our new brand - OpenCode4Connections.org.
OpenNTF has a proven track history in building open source communities around interesting technologies and products, e.g. it was the incubinator for the success of XPages. But let us welcome our newest member:

OpenCode4Connections.org

The intention behind OpenCode4Connections.org is a very simple and short story! IBM Connections deserves a dedicated place where the Open Source Community can meet and collaborate in a creative way to build solutions and fix problems!

To celebrate the start of OpenCode4Connections.org we have decide to organize the IBM Connections Customizer Contest. Learn more about it here!

Have fun!
