Development Code Branch Now Available


Last year AREDN moved away from a formal set of beta test scripts and dedicated testers to a more agile beta general-release model.  Users were eager to get their hands on features they requested months earlier and help us test in preparation for a production release.   While we have been happy with the results, we have noticed that features that take a long time to develop only see the light of day months after development.  We have no easy way to learn from them before beta release.  Today, this is changing.
 
We are going to give anyone who wants it, access to the AREDN development branch builds, which includes the latest features we are developing… even before we are done with them!
 
We have been criticized by some for putting out too many releases.  Our philosophy, which does differ from some other organizations, is very much aligned to the vast majority of open source projects in the industry.  We are completely committed to following this successful model. It is an approach that is more suitable to our nature characterized by: dynamic requirements, a small number of developers, a culture that readily responds to change, and a user community of hams comprised of a highly technical subset who are mature enough to distinguish bleeding-edge from production-ready software.

​Video Recordings Wanted

We are starting to collect video recordings of AREDN networking activities for use in education and promotions. If you have experience in creating quality videos of people working outdoors, and are interested in helping us tell the story, please contact Randy WU2S by email to wu2s at aredn.org

The video segments we want can be as short as 15 to 20 seconds but no more than about 2 minutes. A video with a focus on a specific activity works best. Examples of such activities include: installing an AREDN mesh node on a mast at a new deployment, a view of a served agency staffer (eg. OEM, Red Cross, etc.) using a mesh connected VoIP phone or WinLink during an exercise or deployment, video captures from camera used to support public officials at parades, bike races and 10K runs. A picture of the AREDN label on the equipment used would be a big plus.

Field Day is a great opportunity to capture some mesh networking in the context of our annual preparedness exercise.

Be sure to get a model's release from anyone you record so that the AREDN project can freely use their image on the website and in marketing...

We have posted a photo album on the AREDN Facebook page.
The only regret is that we could only capture a small fraction of the fun we had and just a few of the great people we met.
