On October 14 (2010), I travelled to Vienna, Austria to take part of the KiWi Release Party.

After more than 2 and half years of work, the KiWi platform 1.0 was officially released to the community. The event took place at Planetarium, an exciting space and quite inspiring. The space was properly made up by “KiWi” style, colors and flavors.

The 1st KiWi Programming Camp

The KiWi programming camp was held in Salzburg and it was extremely important to understand in details how KiWi system was designed. In the first two days, we had introductory lectures about the system architecture and Seam framework. This introduction gave us the basis to develop our own functionalities more safely. In addition, we learned how to create unit tests and extend the system with external components, which are quickly plugged to the system.

All participants were represented so that we were able to update each other on the ongoing tasks. One of the major points of this meeting was to present the actual results to the others.

Munich Meeting - Enabling Technologies

From my point of view the Munich Meeting was important to understand more in details what Munich and Brno partners are doing exactly. It was a great time to find out share points and plan later collaboration when implementing our personalization tasks. In particular, it was very helpful listen to François his point of view about usage model in KiWi. He emphasized that we need to have a concrete and clear vision about data we need for our usage model. This is primary requirement for our further development.

ESWC 2008: tutorial and workshop keynote

kiwiposter

I have participated in ESWC 2008 conference in Tenerife. The location was well chosen. Tenerife has very pleasent climate and the accomodation and session rooms in the conference hotel are also excellent. The only disadvantage was the long flight and not really good internet connection. But we have survived :)
