I had the opportunity to play with the internal beta for a little while now,
and I must say that as a developer I am extremely impressed with the service.
Just being able to
git push my code into to the cloud drastically simplifies
large-scale software deployment, and makes it so I don't even have
to leave my development environment.
[ The Leafy Miracle ]
- Written in Python using the Pyramid web framework
- SQLAlchemy database model of Yum Categories, Groups, Packages, Dependencies, and Dependants
- Package mouse-over menus linking to downloads (community), code (gitweb), bugs (bugzilla), acls (pkgdb), builds (koji) and updates (bodhi).
- Deep linking, which allows you to use the browser back/forward buttons while navigating the tree, as well as share or bookmark links to specific nodes
- Search bar with auto-completion of packages, categories, and groups
- jQuery under the hood, powering the widgets

After a 2+ year long internship, I have accepted a full-time job offer with Red Hat, Inc. As far as I know, I'll be mainly working on the Fedora Project -- and since Fedora encompasses and innovates the open-source world, the opportunities are pretty limitless.
I'm extremely grateful to be able to work with an incredible community, and an amazing company full of brilliant minds. I look forward to helping open source take over the world.
Also, thanks to whoever filled my cube with Fedora 6 ppc DVDs, and various half-empty packs of gum. Much appreciated ;)
