Engage Suite of DNN Modules Now Open Source
March 03, 2014
Engage, experts in the design and development of web and mobile solutions for enterprises, announces that it has open-sourced its suite of DNN modules. All Engage modules are now available for free to the DNN community at large, licensed under the MIT open-source license.
Since releasing its first commercial model, Engage: Publish, in 2008, Engage has committed nearly 7,000 man hours to developing and supporting DNN modules that meet clients’ business needs. Because Engage’s client workload continues to grow, it has opted to shift its focus away from module creation and support to concentrate solely on delivering high-quality, custom web and mobile solutions to its customers.
Rich Campbell, president and co-founder, Engage, said, “In the spirit of contributing to the open source movement and the DNN ecosystem, Engage has decided to offer our modules for free. This decision is also a result of our efforts to best serve our clients, as we are now able to devote our full attention to meeting their needs.”
Engage will continue to serve as stewards of its modules – including modules for creating online surveys, managing rotating content, and listing events – ensuring their integrity and making periodic updates. Contributions from the community are welcome. Source code and module install packages are available on GitHub (https://github.com/EngageSoftware), while the forums on http://www.EngageModules.com are still available as a community-supported resource.
