CloudHaven: The "Users First" Application Platform

CloudHaven departs radically from traditional models of application development, data privacy and control, collaboration and inter-application integration. Since it is so radical (and ambitious), a decision was a made to favor adoption over monetization. Thus the initial development approach is as an open source project under one of the least restrictive licensing models, the MIT license.

Initially the team is being developed by Rich Vann and a team of Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, CA software engineering seniors as the basis for a yearlong capstone project for the 20/21 year. 

It turns out the broad and innovative nature of CloudHaven makes it a great vehicle for learning full stack development as well as working in coordinated teams using Agile and other software development methodologies. Any other SW Engineering or Computer Science programs interested in using CloudHaven as the basis for similar student projects are encouraged to fill our the contact form or email info@cloudhaven.net.

Note that in order to maintain vendor neutrality and open up the system to widest possible base of users, CloudHaven will be equitably owned and democratically governed and open to anyone willing to pay a modest membership fee and who can offer some basic confirmation of identity.

CloudHaven vendors providing “apps” on the platform will also be thoroughly vetted and identified.
