October 2016 Newsletter

[OW2 Newsletter - October 2016 - From the OW2 Management Office]

Dear OW2 Members, dear All,

By all accounts, OW2con'16 was a superb event, not only for the beauty of the Mozilla space where we were hosted but also for the quality of the presentations and networking discussions. Our appreciation and congratulations go to all speakers and attendees — and Mozilla! who contributed to making OW2con'16 such a success.

A special mention for our OW2con'16 Best Project Awards: AuthzForce, FusionDirectory, Lutece, Nanocloud, and Prelude.

If you weren't able to make it to OW2con'16, all slides, videos, and photos are now online. And a kind reminder to those of you who had the good fortune to attend OW2con'16 in person, please take 10 minutes to complete our satisfaction survey.

Check out our event page, the OW2 community will be represented at half a dozen events in the coming weeks: our programming contest Award Conference, OSCON Europe, CloudForward, OpenStack Summit, EclipseCon Europe, CLASS and the Paris Open Source Summit. It would be great to see you at these events.

A note on AppHub. As you may already be aware, AppHub is to become the cloud-oriented self-service deployment platform for the OW2 community. Please note that we will be sending a special newsletter next week asking you to test it. Those taking part in our campaign may win a prize! Stay tuned!

Cedric Thomas
