Newsletter - October 2010 - From the OW2 Management Office?
Dear OW2 Members, dear All,
Your monthly OW2 newsletter is published a little later than usual because the past weeks have been even busier than usual: the Corporate Networking Meeting in Beiing, the Programming Contest Award Conference in Yinchuan, immediately followed by our participation in both the Open Communities and the Open Cloud tracks at the Open World Forum.
Last week, just as we were finalizing the organization of the OW2 village and conference track at the Open Source World Conference in Malaga, we received the mail informing us that the event had been cancelled, apparently due to the economic
recession. But we are not giving up! We are still convinced
the time is right for OW2 to move forward in Spain. Stay tuned!
In the meantime, we are getting ready for our 2010 Annual Conference. The programme is now almost complete. Our theme this year, guess what: Open Source for Open Clouds! Highlights of the event include the Open Cloud Summit featuring speakers for OpenStack, OpenNebula and the OW2 Open Source Cloudware Initiative, a visionary keynote by OW2 technology godfather Jean-Bernard Stefani and the Software Quality Action Track (SQuAT) session. Save the date: November 24-25!
Calling all project leaders and developers: we are now ready to proceed with the migration of our forge which we will do our best to make as painless as possible. But of course we'll need your cooperation. You will soon receive a mail from OW2 CTO, Alexandre Lefebvre, who will tell you what to expect and what you will have to do.
Talking about migration, we have at long last completed the migration of our web site. You probably can't see the difference right now and this is good. It means we haven't lost anything on the way. We now have a state-of-the-art (x)wiki platform thanks to which we will be able to improve our web site.
below for more information.
you for your on-going support,
PS: Project leaders: Do not forget to use the OW2 Forge to tell everybody
about your project updates. News will appear on the OW2 forge, our home page and
in this newsletter!
