We are extremely proud to announce that Wikispaces and SourceForge have teamed up to provide wikis to the 1.5 million open source software developers on SourceForge.net.
It’s a great day for us because we have brought the power and simplicity of Wikispaces wikis to one of the largest communities on the web. More than that, we’re thrilled to help enhance the world’s biggest and best open source software development environment. We love helping those who are working on the great open source software that we and millions of others rely on.
Our two organizations have a lot in common. We’re both committed to providing tools for groups of people who have common goals and work to do. We both believe in giving people the tools they need to get their work done and getting out of their way. And we both succeed through the accomplishments of our communities.
This is the largest deployment of wikis of its kind. SourceForge.net is genuinely huge and it’s been a great experience to deploy our technology at such a large scale. We’ve proven not only that Wikispaces is capable of supporting enormous communities, but that it’s straightforward to integrate Wikispaces with an existing website’s infrastructure. The SourceForge.net wikis look like just another part of the SourceForge.net website while providing all of our great Wikispaces functionality and ease of use.
We are very grateful to the entire SourceForge team for working with us to make this happen, for the SourceForge.net community for the feedback they gave us through our beta period, and of course to the Wikispaces community for helping us get where we are.
This is perhaps our biggest and most significant achievement to date. But we aren’t resting here. We will of course pay close attention to the SourceForge.net community and work with the SourceForge team to ensure that the SourceForge.net wikis get better and better. And we are working on more exciting partnerships to bring Wikispaces to ever more people.
