Ken has offered to give a Krugle demo on Thursday at noon. Let me know
if you're interested.
Krugle is a startup that Ken Krugler began working on in February, after
getting exposed to the world of open source as a volunteer helping us
plan our internationalization strategy for Chandler.
It got funded in October, but is still in stealth mode until the DEMO
conference in February.
Ken would like to do a quick demonstration this Thursday at lunch, and
get your feedback on how it can become a killer product for developers.
* a search engine for programmers. It finds, indexes and searches open
source code from repositories, archives, FTP sites and snippets on web
pages. It also crawls and indexes the technical web - the 100M+ pages of
most useful technical content for programmers.
* a "just in time comprehension" tool. Rich search and the ability to
browse code supports programmers working with open APIs, standards and
components; they need to quickly gain sufficient knowledge to solve the
current problem, and the next one, and the one after that.
* a way to communicate about code. Code annotations/tagging, code URLs
and "Codespaces" are new ways for developers and companies to share
information about code and technical content.
