November 2017 Newsletter

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

Dear OW2 Members, dear All,

Once again, this year sees OW2 fully invested in Paris Open Source Summit, the flagship event of Europe's open source community. On the exhibition floor OW2 will be sharing a village with members and partners ActiveEon, Knowage (Engineering Group), Ikoula and Savoir-faire Linux. OW2 is also leading five international conference sessions: Open Source Community Summit, OSS in Big Cities, Open Source and Accessibility, European Collaborative Innovation, and the CHOReVOLUTION workshop on web-services choreographies.

I'd like to take this opportunity to announce the up-coming campaign to test CHOReVOLUTION. The entire IDRE packaged in a ready-to-go virtual machine will be available as of next week. As a subscriber to the OW2 newsletter you will receive a special invitation to test CHOReVOLUTION. Stay tuned!

This month I am pleased to welcome new OW2 Corporate Member Atos Worldline, European leader in the payments and transactional services industry.

On another note, I am delighted to introduce Assad Montasser, OW2's new software engineer. Assad will support our quality efforts and enhancement of the OW2 technical infrastructure. Please extend a warm welcome to Assad!

Thanking for your on-going support,

Cedric Thomas
