I've never written an article like this before. Ever. This is unique and exciting and I couldn't be happier to do it. And what makes it even better is that its about improving one of the most popular Force.com Labs apps of all time.

It's been a little while since I posted so you might be wondering, "What's up with Labs updates?" Well, wonder no more!
If you attended the Dive In: Join or Start an Open Source Community session at Dreamforce, you are well aware that Milestones PM, one of our most successful Force.com Labs apps to date, is open source. You and your developer friends can head straight over to our GitHub account, ForceDotComLabs, and get the code, check out the issues list and, today, for the first time, check out our fancy new Version History.
Dreamforce is here. Wow. That was fast! If you're a fan of Force.com Labs, I'd love to meet you. In fact, I've set up two dedicated times.

I'm excited to be at OSCON this year. It's my first trip, and so far Portland is proving to be far more comfortable than Chicago, (weather-wise anyway). In the mean time, I've been asking myself a simple question: why open source? Two interesting posts popped up in my pre #OSCON related reading that both point to the same idea (and about zillion more will popup by the end of the week -- that's why I'm here).
CloudSpokes, the cloud code focused crowd sourcing app (say that five times fast), today announced two very exciting things with regards to open source.
I'm ridiculously excited to announce the Open Source Garage Sponsored by GitHub, in the Developer Zone at Dreamforce 11. Yes, that GitHub.
If you’ve been keeping up, you already know that Josh Birk and I were up at the Wisconsin User Group today talking about apps and showing some super cool code. Here’s a short list of the apps, Birk will be covering the code in a separate post. Let’s take a look at the top 10 apps over the last 30 days, new apps added over the last ~90 days, and some of the apps I demoed.
Fridays can be a little ho hum at Labs HQ. Not so this last one. Why? Well don't just stand there. Read this exciting post!
