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 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.
