We invite you to a general assembly (GA) of the oemof association that will take place on the 19th of May as part of the oemof user/dev meeting in Flensburg. The assembly will be located at the meetings venue (European University Flensburg Building VIL1, Auf dem Campus 1, Flensburg) and start at 14:00.
Opening and welcome
Agreement on the agenda
Acceptance of the minutes of the last GA
Bylaws and membership fee regulations
The changed statute can be found at GitHub (binding German version, informative English translation). The changes are marginal and probably required by the German authorities. We decided to let the GA decide before the authorities file a formal complaint. Formally, the decision will be on the full (changed) statute rather than the changes, as it makes live easier to have everything in one protocol. According to our statute, all members can already vote on the changed statute. To do so, you can leave a review (approve/object) at the PR at GitHub. Alternatively, you can write an email to email@example.com to get instructions how to vote by (paper) mail.
Two days only until the third digital oemof meeting: Starting on Wednesday, 5th of May, users and developers are invited to participate and share their experience with the oemof community. The meeting will be held online via BigBlueButton.
A preliminary schedule has been drafted and is available on our GitHub Wiki page. You can still register via the Etherpad and, for example, line up to pitch your project to exchange ideas and get feedback from the community.
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.
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.
Please register by writing your name in the wiki, or by adding a short comment in the issue. If you are only interested in a few session, please also indicate that in your comment, or write your name directly to the sessions.
Less than a week until the next user/dev meeting will begin. We set up a schedule for the meeting, which might be updated in the next days. We still have some free slots available to organize additional sessions.
For registering, please sign up here (scroll to the bottom). We still have some spots available. If you don’t have sufficient access rights, drop us a line here.
All registered people get access to the web conference. We’ll get in touch with you by mail. The meeting will be streamed including an option for Q&A via chat. The stream will be announced on the wiki page.
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.
