Hack, eat, sleep, repeat: Our 2022-11 dev meeting was one big hackathon event where we joint forces to solve problems with the code. It was so intense, we even forgot to taka a photo. (We were some 15 very enthusiastic hackers.) There are a couple important decisions to be communicated:
- The next release of solph (v0.5) is in feature freeze. We will just update the documentation and finalise making arguments explicit and release afterwards.
- Multi-period optimisation and renaming Transformer to Converter will follow with v0.5.1 with a merge to mainline solph right after v0.5.0. The changed name will have a wrapper so it is not API breaking.
- Stephan Günther, Caroline Möller, and Patrik Schönfeldt form the new board of the oemof association.
Also, today was an important day for the oemof association. After everything was agreed on by the general assembly on November 10th, 2022, the protocol as well as the statute were notarised and sent to the register of associations. By chance we also received the final documents needed to apply for our non-profit status. So, now we have to wait until things are processed until the association gets it final legal status.
We finally opened registration for the omof developer meeting 2022. As suggested last year’s dev meeting, it will take place at Magdeburg University from the 09th to the 11th of November. One focus will definitely be on the next release of solph, but the agenda is kept flexible to meet the demands of the participants and will continuously developed at https://github.com/oemof/oemof/wiki/Meeting-2022.11.
Developer meetings are no closed shop but a great opportunity for a first contact for those who are considering to collaborate. In fact, it’s rather common that people join a developer before actively contributing. With this regard, the upcoming meeting is a particular good opportunity as there are a couple of freshly developed features also new to long-term developers.
To register, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or post a comment at https://github.com/oemof/oemof/issues/100.
Hereby we invite you to the general assembly (GA) of the oemof association. It will be held at the University of Magdeburg at 13:30 on the 10th of November 2022, as a part of this year’s developer meeting (9th to 11th of November). As we elect our representatives for one year, elections are the crucial point of this GA. To get used to the standard procedure, the agenda includes all typical points even if i.e. the financial report will be really short. If you have further points to discuss, please send an email to email@example.com or post them at https://github.com/oemof/oemof/issues/105.
