just like in case of the OCCT forum I wasn't sure if this is the right category to start the discussion here but in the end one could regard a meeting a tool for collaborative work...
This is a cross-post from http://www.opencascade.org/org/forum/thread_23590/?forum=3
The idea is to organize a meeting involving many parties using / working with OCCT such as: the OCC Company, the open source community members, the OCC customers or even representatives of the competing CAD-kernels in order to:
- exchange our experiences gained while working with OCCT,
- support the open source development of the library,
- present our work and achievements and to look for synergies among the users,
- estimate the goals for further development, cooperation etc.
As the original discussion on LinkedIn (http://www.linkedin.com/groups?gid=1546137) got quite long I will not quote it here in order not to discourage you from reading. Just to sum up: The initial conference would very likely be organized by the OCC company and it is possible to hold such a meeting on a regular basis (yearly, for instance).
So would you be interested in attending the proposed event?
