Here’s a bunch of big news from cloud computing application framework company 10gen: their SDK is now available for download, they are making the entire platform Open Source, and they’ve received Series A financing. Congratulations to 10gen for reaching these big milestones, and for the decision to make their code Open Source.

In related news, I’m joining 10gen as of August 11th. I can’t wait to start. I’m hoping to be able to blog about what I’ll be working on: improving their Ruby implementation and making Ruby on Rails work on their cloud computing platform with Mongo, the 10gen distributed OO database.
