Last week, as part of the COCLICO project‘s efforts to work on forges interoperability issues, we invited partners and contacts for a short meetup in Paris, with a special guest, Steve Speicher, lead of the OSLC-CM domain work-group.
Steve was in Paris to speak at the Open World Forum 2010 in the forges interoperability track. As time slots at OWF were quite short, we proposed to have this meetup a few days earlier to be able to have more detailed discussions and demos.
Steve has presented the following slides : OSLC Specifications for Interoperability and a screencast of AJAX interaction between an OSLC-CM server and a consumer.
On our side, we made a quick demo (a screencast actually) of our Mantis add-on for OSLC-CM.
We have discussed several technical aspects of OSLC, and also the community of actors working on the specifications. Regarding the french speaking community, there doesn’t seem to be an urgent need to have a specific structure setup so far, but we will nevertheless probably continue sharing content in french whenever we have some time.
I’ve been very glad to meet Steve, and hopefully, there are gonna be other times for new meetups. Why not a formal OSLC conference some day ?
In the meantime, feel free to tell us if you’d like to discuss OSLC and forges interoperability.
