In less than three weeks, the next digital oemof meeting is scheduled. From May 5th to May 7th you can join tutorials, show and discuss your own models and share your experience with the oemof community.

To register, simply add your name and/or GitHub handle in the participants list in the respective etherpad. We invite you to add your own topics until May 2nd. A schedule will be drafted and continuously updated based on your feedback and suggestions. We will keep you informed on technical details (platform, meeting link, etc.) with the next post on oemof.org and in the etherpad.

If you have any trouble or questions, you can reach out via our contact-form.

New web page online

We are about to move oemof.org to a new web space. To allow for a smooth transition, the new page (this one) is already on-line. So, hopefully, the posts announcing the transitions here and there (at the old site) will be the mayor signs of the relocations. But there is more:

  • Improved control: By doing more on our own, we have more flexibility on what we do. Several times already, we came to the point that we wanted to implement something for the page but were not able to because of our web page plan. This will be different from now on.
  • Improved data protection: The first thing we use our newly gained power for, is sniping of the trail of your data to third parties. Also, hosting has moved from the US to Europe.
  • More to come: This is not planned to be a relaunch but a smooth transition. Honestly, I would not even write this if I did not have to test the post notification mailer.

Biggest community ever at the anniversary developer meeting

The oemof community gathered from 4th to 6th of December 2019 for the developer meeting in the Beuth-Halle at Beuth University of Applied Sciences. Besides the celebration of oemof’s 5th birthday we intensely worked together (among others) on the further development of oemof libraries, the facades structure of components, rolling horizon approaches, GitHub Workflows and the improvement of the website. We gathered first ideas for an oemof foundation and shared experiences with paid support. We also decided the unbundling of oemof and solph, so that the next major release will be a v0.4.0 solph release. Apart from the intense work we celebrated oemof’s 5th birthday with a nice birthday cake and a funny presentation of the history of oemof’s development.

Anniversary developer meeting – Final agenda

The next oemof developer meeting starts soon. From Wednesday the 4th (noon) until Friday the 6th of December 2019 (noon) we will meet at the Beuth Hochschule für Technik in Berlin.

Please find the final agenda and the venue here: https://github.com/oemof/organisation/wiki/Meeting-December-2019
A detailed description of the topics can be found at: https://etherpad.wikimedia.org/p/oemof_dev_meeting_dec_2019

Some space for additional sessions is still left.

There will also be a poster session with space for 10 posters. You can present your current work and have the chance to connect with other developers in your scientific field. As the winter meeting has a developer focus, we would like the contributions to address your ongoing developments, interesting new methods, or approaches worth discussing. There are no formal requirements. If you want to show your problems and approaches, feel free to bring a collection of A4/A3 pages and pin them on the board so we can discuss. We prefer an interesting exchange to shiny perfectionism, so a more improvised version would count as a poster as well.

If you like to participate, have topics to add, plan to bring a poster, or only want to be part of oemof’s 5-years birthday party (Wednesday, 4th of December, 17 pm), please register until November 27th 2019 via caroline.moeller@rl-institut.de.

Anyone who is interested is cordially invited! We are looking forward to meeting you in Berlin!
