These are the main projects, events, new sites, trends, personalities and general observations that have struck me as being important to help further the development of this field. At the end of December I published a collection for the last 6 months of 2013 and now I’d like to reflect on the opening 6 months of 2014.

We implemented Code Gestalt as plug-in for Eclipse and built upon the JDT and Cultivate (2). The user interface is inspired by Relo (1), but focuses more on developer communication and semantics. The user can create diagrams with a simple drag-and-drop interface and edit it using contextual UI elements. The process of building class diagram can be completed without touching a tool-bar or menu. Of course, the interface provides default context, menu and keyboard commands, if the user prefers this.

Governments are beginning to open up and give people access to the data they have rights to. Some corporations are realizing they don’t need to keep closed doors on all of their data, especially if they are doing the right thing anyway. The number of places to find open data on the web is growing rapidly, and shows no signs of slowing.
