See you at the first international Openbravo community event

Openbravo Get Together banner
There is no doubt that Openbravo's community is growing very fast. The strength of the product -which has been in production since 2001-, and a truly open company vision, which places the community at the core of everything we do (from development and testing to documentation) is no doubt helping.

Born on April 19th, 2006 (the date when Openbravo's code was first was published in SourceForge) the following indicators clearly show Openbravo's community has enjoyed a remarkable activity:

  • More than 350,000 accumulated downloads (today we have more than 1,000 average downloads a day)
  • 1,400 bugs reported
  • 41 registered localization projects
  • 7,500 messages in 11 forums, with
  • 172 individuals participating every month (17 are Openbravo employees)
  • 67 registered developers in (31 are Openbravo employees)
  • 933 registered in the wiki (30 are Openbravo employees)
Right now I am getting the final confirmed attendants in our first international community gathering in Barcelona: the so called Openbravo Get Together and they look great! We have confirmed the attendance of almost 200 participants coming from 31 different countries representing all continents.

We will cover several topics, including business and technical aspects. We also will show case one of the first tangible results of the Open Solutions Alliance: the Common Customer View project's single sign-on.

For all of you attending ... THANK YOU and a WARM WELCOME TO BARCELONA! I don't have any doubts that you will enjoy the event and will help bring Openbravo's community one step forward.

For those that you can not attend, don't be sad: we will post the different presentations and summaries of the different sessions.

This is only the beginning!
