Contributing to open source, part I

Proactima values knowledge and part of that is sharing the knowledge. One way of sharing, in software development, is to contribute to open source projects. So in UXRisk we have contributed to open source projects that we use:

Ninject.Extensions.Azure

We have contributed minor fixes to package versions and the ability to inject on Azure Worker Roles. So just small changes that we needed in our work, but very rewarding to be able to fix it ourselves.

Semantic Logging Application Block

We are using ElasticSearch (ES) for our logging needs and there was no built in sink to store logs in ES, so we created our own implementation. We basically reused the code from Azure Table Storage and adapted it to our needs. In cooperation with another member of the Semantic Logging Application BlockĀ (SLAB) codeplex site our code was accepted into the master branch of SLAB.
