We want to thank all participants of this year’s oemof spring meeting. It’s always a joy to have a few days reserved for concentrated discussions around the things you create and investigate using oemof. Some of you already provided their slides, these are now available in the collection of oemof publications.
This year’s spring meeting wasn’t only the biggest in-person meeting but also probably the most international one. It was located almost in sight of the Danish/German border. Some of the almost 40 participants arrived from Italy and Spain just for the meeting. Not to speak about contributions from people who stay in Germany for longer. This confirmed us in our decision to also keep the organisation of the oemof association in English. (Side node: It was in the middle of the association’s general assembly that we realised that the about ten persons joining that particular session were able to understand German.)
As part of the open_plan research project, we invite you to the third stakeholder workshop and look forward to presenting version 1.0 of the open_plan tool. If you are interested you can register here. The workshop will take place on 20.10.2021 from 10–13:00 online. Workshop language is German.
In the open_plan project we are going to develop a user interface to build an energy system with oemof. During the development process, we focused on user-friendliness, which is a key requirement of our partners. In this context, we also would like to get feedback from the oemof community on our results and release the tool for first use.
We would like to point out that the open_plan tool is still under development. Nevertheless, we would like to release the tool with its current development status for initial use so that we can incorporate your feedback into the further development of the tool at an early stage. With this approach, we ensure that the requirements of our partners for the open_plan tool are met in the best possible way.
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.
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.
The next oemof developer meeting will be held from Wednesday the 2nd to Friday the 4th of December 2020. It will be an online event full of virtual workshops and discussions about technical and organisational aspects of oemof. One topic will be the current status of the “oemof foundation” (working title), which is planned be incorporated at the next in-person meeting.
Anyone who is interested is cordially invited to participate and to contribute topics. All topics including additional information will be collected at the oemof organisation wiki page for the 2020 December Meeting. If you want to register, please contact us in the according ticket at GitHub. You can also suggest additional topics at the same place, we will continue shaping the agenda based on your input at least until the 23rd of November.
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.
