Debian Maintainer Dashboard now provides iCalendar feeds

Contributors to Debian can now monitor their list of pending activities using iCalendar clients on their desktop or mobile device.

Get your Nagios issues as an iCalendar feed

The other day I demonstrated how to get your Github issues/bugs as an iCalendar feed.

I'm planning to take this concept further and I just whipped up another Python script, exposing Nagios issues as an iCalendar feed.

Get your Github issues as an iCalendar feed

I've just whipped up a Python script that renders Github issue lists from your favourite projects as an iCalendar feed.

The project is called github-icalendar. It uses Python Flask to expose the iCalendar feed over HTTP.

It is really easy to get up and running. All the dependencies are available on a modern Linux distribution, for example:

PostBooks 4.7 packages available, xTupleCon 2014 award

I recently updated the PostBooks packages in Debian and Ubuntu to version 4.7. This is the version that was released in Ubuntu 14.10 (Utopic Unicorn) and is part of the upcoming Debian 8 (jessie) release.

WebRTC in CRM/ERP solutions at xTupleCon 2014

In October this year I'll be visiting the US and Canada for some conferences and a wedding. The first event will be xTupleCon 2014 in Norfolk, Virginia. xTuple make the popular open source accounting and CRM suite PostBooks. The event kicks off with a keynote from Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak on the evening of October 14.

Trialing the xTuple/PostBooks next generation web UI

For some time I've been using PostBooks to keep track of finances. The traditional PostBooks system has a powerful Qt GUI.

The xTuple team have been hard at work creating a shiny new web-based user interface.

The traditional UI has no dedicated server - all users communicate directly with the PostgreSQL database where stored procedures and triggers ensure the correct logic is applied.

xTuple consults community on best license options

xTuple, the makers of PostBooks, the compelling PostgreSQL-based accounting and CRM suite have started a discussion about how to move to a more recognised license.

PostBooks packages available

A common theme that comes up in free software evangelism is the question of how to tap into the huge expenditure that small to medium-sized businesses make for off-the-shelf licensed software. It is well known that many small companies are paying over the odds compared to the site-license rates given to big business, so why is it that small businesses are not rushing to adopt free and open source solutions?
