DotNetNuke Corporation Create to Manage Open Source Web Application Framework Project
Posted on 22-Sep-2006 23:08 | Tags Filed under: News



The DotNetNuke Corporation was formed to serve the needs of the DotNetNuke project, a popular Open Source web application framework for the ASP.Net platform.

The new entity will focus on the management of the project, while leveraging a wide array of resources to create and distribute a free Open Source web application framework. Shaun Walker is the founder of DotNetNuke Corp.

Perpetual Motion Interactive Systems, Inc., Walker’s British Columbia, Canada-based company that currently manages the DotNetNuke project and its intellectual property including trademarks, will transfer these assets to DotNetNuke Corp., which will be based in Seattle, Washington.

The new company will maintain the primary authority for managing the Open Source project, stewarding and distributing the source code, setting policies, managing intellectual property, and organizing the relationships between all participants in the project.

In the four years since the DotNetNuke project was launched, it has seen its registered user ranks swell to 335,000 members and demand for its flagship product surpassing 2 million downloads worldwide.

In addition to spearheading the Open Source project, DotNetNuke Corp. will also focus on developing and delivering services including marketing, sponsorships, and a wide range of partner-related activities. These activities are expected to generate revenue, but the company intends to focus on those opportunities that are consistent with the community values and public goals of the project, Walker said. This includes providing funding for aspects of the project that are difficult or challenging for volunteer teams to solely undertake such as professional marketing, large-scale platform and feature development, product certification and ecommerce initiatives, he added.

The current members of the DotNetNuke project management board – Joe Brinkman, Nik Kalyani and Scott Willhite – will join Walker as co-founders of the new company.
