Re: Event management software open source

The first Summit, we use Django. It is very flexible but need higher skill for the web developer.

The leader of the website is Will Lashell, no doubt . I have already talked with Will and Pockey about the framework of website, we prefer to use the first year framework and make it more stable and reused for future summit.

BTW, the admin of Beijing GNOME Users Group website, Vincent D is willing to join the website team. He is willing to learn python and Django. I cc: him here.

Following up on this front there is a thread started for Guadec, also looking at hosting their own open source project right here:

One of the project seems to be using Django, so maybe a good fit for our current infrastructure?

Who's our conference website lead by the way?

I guess everyone is recovering from the great event we had last weekend. Following up on the team meeting we had Sunday morning I took a quick look at software covering the subject line. It seems OCS could do the job for next year. For the website feature list include:
  • create a conference Web site
  • compose and send a call for papers
  • electronically accept paper and abstract submissions
  • allow paper submitters to edit their work
  • post conference proceedings and papers in a searchable format
  • post, if you wish, the original data sets
  • register participants
  • integrate post-conference online discussions
  • Multiple languages
  • localization & translation tools
  • manage conferences that occur more than once (e.g. yearly)
That would avoid to go into a "best tool discussion" every year and let us focus on organization instead of infrastructure development and maintenance.

Since that was once of the action item, well here it is. It would be nice to be able to keep the live feed we had in 2008 though.... :)
