InaSAFE wins Open Source ‘Rookie of the Year’ award

From Tim’s post:

Rookie_Award_2012 A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of doing an interview on behalf of the InaSAFE project as part of the selection process for the Black Duck Software ‘open source rookies of the year’ competition. A week later we heard that we had made it into the top 10! The award is based on a selection or projects from the popular ohlog.net web site:

“Using data on open source projects from Ohloh.net and the Black Duck® KnowledgeBase™, Black Duck reviewed thousands of open source projects that were initiated in 2012 to select the fifth annual Open Source Rookies of the Year. Using a weighted scoring system, points were awarded based on project activity, commits pace, project team attributes and other factors. Black Duck determined the top 10 Rookie projects following an audit of its findings and normalization of scores.”

You can see all the winners listed at the official competition page here. We were also fortunate to be mentioned in Wired, DirectionsMag and various other places.

We have worked incredibly hard over the last year to make the InaSAFE plugin for QGIS, with a team of dedicated developers from AUSAID, WorldBank, Linfiniti, opengis.ch and a number of other developers and contributors, so it is really great to receive this acknowledgement! Here is looking to another great year of working on InaSAFE for 2013!

“We are pleased to recognize InaSAFE as one of the 2012 Open Source Rookies of the Year,” said Tim Yeaton, CEO and president, Black Duck Software. “The Rookies demonstrate how community innovation, particularly within the JavaScript and mobile projects, mirrors the need for innovation in web experiences, mobile devices and enterprise application. Being able to identify and showcase these up-and-coming open source projects is an important part of our mission at Black Duck to bring together the open source community and businesses around the world.”

Past winners of the prestigious award include Twitter Bootstrap, Cloud Foundry, Mozilla Persona (formerly known as BrowserID), Red Hat OpenShift, Eclipse Orion, Apache Rave, Salt Stack, OpenStack, Diaspora and many other notable projects.

I’m really happy to be part of this team and I look forward to more hacking (in the original sense of course) together, Great job guys

I have been working a lot in Indonesia this year on the InaSAFE project. InaSAFE is a QGIS plugin (also available as a web extension for GeoNode) for assessment of scenarios following a natural disaster such as a flood, earthquake, volcano, tsunami etc. This month the InaSAFE team (which consists of developers from around the world, funded by AUSAID and The World Bank / GFDRR) launched version 1.0 of InaSAFE - which involved a phenomenal amount of work from everybody  on the project. The 1.0 release was made at the AMCDRR, a high level conference for disaster risk reduction in Asia, and was even demonstrated to the President of Indonesia which was a great feather in the cap of QGIS and InaSAFE.

You can get your copy by simply opening QGIS (1.7.4 or 1.8), clicking Plugins -> Fetch Python Plugins, then type 'inasfe' in the filter box and select InaSAFE 1.0 from the list provided. InaSAFE is completely Free and Open Source (GPL v3) and you can get source code from our github project.
