August 2017 Newsletter

[OW2 Newsletter - August 2017 - From the OW2 Management Office]

Dear OW2 Members, dear All,

As you know we are expanding our quality program to encompass all aspects of project market readiness. A preview of the OW2 Market Readiness Levels (OW2 MRL) was presented at OW2con'17. The aim of the OW2 MRL is to enhance the attractiveness of the OW2 code base and facilitate its market adoption by providing transparent, high-value information to users and project leaders alike. To be successful, the OW2 MRL must be designed, built and maintained by those who will benefit from it – necessarily an open process! Please check out this OW2 MRL project page and feel free to comment.

With OW2con'17 now well over, I have two reminders for you: first, all presentation slides and videos, and photos of the conference and the party are published; second, we need you to help us make next year's event even better by giving us your feedback on our short satisfaction survey.

On another note, you may have noticed there is much room for improvement in our social network communication. We have already started posting tweets on a more regular basis. We are counting on you to follow @ow2 on twitter and to tweet and retweet about @ow2.

We are still receiving support testimonials on our 10th anniversary. These are very much appreciated! Send us your own quote on what OW2 represents for you, a personal anecdote, good wishes for the future, etc. Don't be shy, go for it!

We are in the months when the OW2 Management Office takes turns to go on well-deserved holidays; please note OW2 will not be operating at full speed until August 21.

For those of you in the northern hemisphere, enjoy your summer break!

Cedric Thomas
