Developer presentations

Presentations are ~10 minutes each with a short discussion afterwards.

Please present your work done, planned and how it integrates with the platform as expressed in the PlatformArchitecture draft.

As in projects initial outlined goals often are not reached in the end, we ask everyone to list the minimum/core achievements that other developers can count on.

Reading Material

Every participant should be familiar with this wiki (see mayor items on the right hand navigation) and read at least the PlatformArchitecture draft. The CommonDataModel is at the core of the platform, so a look into its current state, at least in an overview, is worthwile too (look for UML class diagrams link).


We are reserving tables for dinner on thursday evening at Clärchens Ballhaus": in Berlin-Mitte. There is a direct train (S1) from "Rathaus Steglitz": running til late to "Oranienburger Strasse in Berlin-Mitte. From there its a 5-10 minutes walk.
