Usergrid Source Code Release on GitHub

From the webpage:

We’re announcing today the first source code release of Usergrid, a comprehensive platform stack for mobile and rich client applications. The entire codebase is now available on GitHub at https://github.com/usergrid/stack. Usergrid is built in Java and runs on top of Cassandra. Although we built Usergrid as a highly scalable cloud service, we’ve also taken a few steps to make it easy to run “small”, including providing a double-clickable desktop app that lets you run your own personal installation on your desktop, so you can get started right away.

I thought I read about “rich clients” with HTML5.

But the W3C web design team buried the HTML 5 draft 5 clicks deep from their homepage. Good thing I knew to keep looking. That’s not just poor marketing, that’s also poor design.

A future of incompatiblity awaits.
