Announcing Quartermaster 0.5 Requirements Workshop and Hack Day: April 3 and 4, 2019

February 25, 2019

To prepare the development work on the quarterly QMSTR milestone releases, the team organizes requirements workshops open to the community. We are currently working on version 0.4, which is expected to be released in early April. 0.5 will be developed in the second quarter of 2019. The 0.5 requirements workshop will take place on April 3 and 4, 2019 at Endocode’s office in Berlin, Germany, right before the Compliance Tooling Group meeting, FOSS-NORTH and LLW 2019. There is a limited availability of 20 seats, so please register early by using the contact form on the web site.

QMSTR Requirements Workshops

The goal of the workshop is to collaboratively develop the roadmap for QMSTR 0.5 together with interested industry and community contributors. It will serve to collect feedback as well as industry and community input on functionality needs. We intend the workshop to be a hands-on, collaborative experience, complementing the ongoing decentralized development on Github. There will be two parts to the event, a hands-on hack day on April 3, and the actual requirements planning that will take place on April 4. A dinner will be organized for the evening of April 3 for all those who are interested.

April 3: Hack Day

The intention of the hack day is to give participants a chance to work with the QMSTR development team, get demonstrations of recent features, try out writing an analyzer module or walk through details of setup and deployments, and generally to have a good time and get over the jet lag. If interesting feature ideas arise from it, even better, they will be broken down in detail on day 2. A dinner-and-drinks get-together is planned for the evening.

April 4: Requirements Workshop

April 4 is the day to review current and recently added functionality, and plan goals for the six development sprints leading to QMSTR version 0.5. There will be a lot to talk about with the FASTEN Project starting and the Linux Foundation ACT project launching soon. Besides technical discussions and roadmap planning, the idea also is to identify opportunities to collaborate and contribute.

How to register, venue, hotels

To register, please use the contact form and state that you would like to attend the workshop. You will receive an email with a confirmation shortly, provided there are still seats available. Registration is on a first-come-first-served basis, with a (somewhat flexible) upper limit of 20 participants. The workshop will take place at Endocode’s Berlin office. The Park Inn Alexanderplatz or the Motel One Berlin-Mitte are close by, as are many other hotels in the Alexanderplatz area.

Looking forward to drafting the next milestone with you!
