“If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of giants”

-Sir Isaac Newton

Migratr, at it’s heart, is an exercise in standing on the shoulders of giants. A good friend of mine also once described it as “evangelical preacher” software, gathering other components together, and uniting them in one common purpose. The point here is, Migratr uses several libraries written by some very talented programmers, who were generous enough to put them under free (as in speech, as in beer… is that “as in talking beer”? Can I say that?) licenses. These projects are listed below.

FlickrNet – .NET library for access to Flickr, 23HQ, and Zooomr.
SmugMugSharp – .NET library access to SmugMug
Google Sharp / Picasa Sharp – .NET library access to Picasaweb.

The generosity of the developers and contributors of these projects has cut development time of Migratr down tenfold.
