We've been writing a fair bit about Stackato recently, but mostly with IT managers and sysadmins in mind. We thought it was time to evangelize a bit to the Komodo community. Since it's developers who will be the day-to-day users of this platform, we'd like to get you involved a bit more and hear your feedback.
As part of the beta launch for ActiveState's Stackato cloud platform, we've written a Rails app that tracks the tweet activity on some of the players in the upcoming American presidential election (only less than 16 months away as I write this!). You can read more about CandidateBuzz here.
A couple of weeks ago we released Komodo IDE 7 Alpha 1 on an unsuspecting world. We want to get feedback on a couple of new features as early as possible so that we can incorporate the feedback in subsequent builds.
In other words: things might break, and things will change, but it'll be fun.
