Apereo Newsletters Collected

In which I scratch my itch for a page that lists recent Apereo newsletters.

Notes here are selfishly focused on aspects of Apereo most relevant to me.

Ordered most recent to least recent.

Apereo Incubation is a going concern. OpenDashboard (a web application framework for displaying visualizations and data views called "cards") entered incubation in June 2015.

University of Delaware sought feedback on whether their Spring web application implementing self-service course registration experiences should be developed into an open source tool, run through Apereo incubation, or if higher education would rather keep paying vendors hefty annual fees for inferior solutions, force their students to use slow and clunky PeopleSoft Student Information System UIs, or continue to prefer local one-off custom software development and miss opportunities to collaborate and share solutions.

Patrick Masson (Open Source Initiative)'s excellent keynote presentation The Real Meaning of Open is available as a YouTube recording.
