Technology Council

Role and Duties

The Technology Council (TC) is responsible for:

  • building the overall technical architecture, including defining technical guidelines
  • providing technology validation
  • making project life-cycle decisions (see the project page and the lifecycle criteria)
  • monitoring the production and the overall projects consistency.

The Technology Council also defines OW2's architecture vision, it validates the founding charters of Projects and Initiatives and it approves the reuse of non-OW2 code into Projects and Initiatives.

The Technology Council provides guidelines to the OW2 Management Office regarding the evolution of the OW2 technical platform.

TC Participants

Every OW2 Project leader is de facto a member of the Technology Council. The list of members is available on this page. Only TC members can volunteer for mentoring incubated projects. The Technology Council is run by its elected Chairman and by the  OW2 CTO.

If you're the project leader of an OW2 project and you want to be involved in this activity, providing vision and taking decisions, please contact us.

Communication means


The Technology Council organizes meetings on a bimestrial basis (at least we try to).

Next TC meeting

The next TC meeting will take place in September 2015.

Please log-in 15min the starting time to solve potential technical issues so we can effectively start the meeting on time. For this meeting, we may try using WebEx for the first time in parallel with the IRC chat.
