Entaggle is a web site for giving and getting recognition as a professional from your peers, colleagues, mentors, and others.
Giving and Getting Recognition
To recognize someone, you tag them. Tags can represent an accomplishment, commemorate an event, or recognize an important skill or attribute. You can even tag yourself.
If you can't find an appropriate tag, you can create your own. You might create custom tags to recognize an accomplishment, participation in events that you organize, membership in a community, expertise in a given skill, or an attribute that you think is important.
When you create a tag, you control who can use it. You can make it Public (so it's available to any user), Self-tagging (so anyone can use it, but only to tag themselves), or Private (so only the creator can grant it).
Several people contributed to the this effort. Elisabeth Hendrickson is the lead developer. The following people have also contributed and were instrumental in getting things started: Pat Maddox, Dale Emery, Joseph Wilk, Michael Dowling, Richard Scherek, Lasse Koskela, and Marcus Smith (who created our cheerful "e" logo). Thanks also to Darren McMillan for turning our logo into a favicon.
Quality Tree Software, Inc. pays to keep the servers running.
The Technology Stack
We use Hudson for continuous integration and deploy. (And because we believe in visibility, we've made our CI server publicly visible.)
We use Github for the hosted source control repository. (However, this is not an open source project and we do not make our source code publicly available.)
The servers are hosted at Slicehost.
We use Pivotal Tracker for backlog management.
