Adam Laiacano Blog - 25 Years of American Cultures The American Cultures Center at UC Berkeley recently commissioned a poster to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the American Cultures requirement. As part of the process of developing the piece I interviewed students, staff and faculty about the role the students have the opportunity to play, in serving their communities through an engaged praxis, via the American Cultures classes. In 1989, UC Berkeley adopted the ground breaking American Cultures (AC) undergraduate education requirement. The AC Center also provides a unique environment for the development of student and faculty programs and welcomes opportunities to collaborate with campus academic partners, student based organizations and community partners. Monday, April 21, 5-7pm - In Conversation: Current AC Student Advisory Board and 1989 UC Berkeley undergraduates. Tuesday, April 22, 6-8pm – The Art of AC! Friday, April 25, 9am – 12noon - 'Social Justice in Higher Education - Lessons from 1989'.

Matt Might OpenOME The Organization Modelling Environment (OME) is a general, goal-oriented and/or agent-oriented modeling and analysis tool. It provides users with a graphical interface to develop models, and supports access to a powerful knowledge base that allows for sophisticated computer-aided analysis. This tool is intended to provide software developers with a clear link between the requirements, specification and architectural design phases of development. Attention is also being placed on this use of this tool in business process reengineering. OpenOME integrates an improved version of OME with other tools to support goal-oriented, agent-oriented and aspect-oriented requirements engineering in software development ( Eclipse), conceptual modeling ( Protégé) and other graph editing ( Visio) environments.

i* Intentional STrategic Actor Relationships modelling - istar The i* framework proposes an agent-oriented approach to requirements engineering centering on the intentional characteristics of the agent. Agents attribute intentional properties (such as goals, beliefs, abilities, commitments) to each other and reason about strategic relationships. Dependencies between agents give rise to opportunities as well as vulnerabilities. Networks of dependencies are analyzed using a qualitative reasoning approach. The framework is used in contexts in which there are multiple parties (or autonomous units) with strategic interests which may be reinforcing or conflicting in relation to each other. The name i* (pronounced eye-star) refers to the concept of distributed intentionality. Back to top Keywords: strategic relationships, intentional dependencies, multi-agent systems, autonomous agents, social networks, requirements engineering Back to top *new* Updated release, OpenOME version 3.4.2 is now available! OpenOME is a software tool for supporting i* modeling. Y.

NoSQL Zone Alec Noller The Best of the Week (Apr. 4): NoSQL Zone Make sure you didn't miss anything with this list of the Best of the Week in the NoSQL Zone. This week's best include a TokuMX and MongoDB Oplog entry comparison, the release of MongoDB 2.6, announcing Couchbase Server 2.5.1, and more. NoSQL Zone Link Roundup (Apr. 12) For a look at what's been happening outside of the NoSQL Zone, we've assembled a collection of links from around the web, including a look at MapReduce performance on SSDs, Oracle's intention to create NoSQL standards, a new data structure for Redis, Cassandra at one million writes per second, and more. Don Pinto How Many Nodes? In this post, the author will be discussing the various metrics that should be used to understand the sizing needs of a running Couchbase Server cluster.

Planning Mogade v2 is a free platform I wrote to help developers add some common features, like leaderboards, achievements and analytics to their games. It has been a small success. Developers who use it have been enthusiastic and appreciative. Currently mogade is made up of three components. Currently, only the drivers are open source. While this approach will let developers host their own leaderboard and achievement services, isn't going anywhere. The v1 api/service isn't going anywhere..and isn't going to be shut down once v2 becomes available. Stay tuned, commits will hopefully start to trickle in within the next couple weeks.
