                  OCA Update

                  Podcast Projets Libres - Listen Now

                  Alone, we go fast. Together, we go further!
                  Our OCA President Joël Grand-Guillaume recently had the honour of being featured on the "Projet Libres" podcast. In this insightful interview, he discussed the creation, functioning, financing, and relationship of OCA with Odoo. The episode also touched upon the vibrant community and the future of Association. 

                  The conversation was conducted in French, but fret not, a transcript is available in English for your convenience.

                  OCA Open Live Sessions

                  We've had two really informative Open Live Sessions to date - you can see some of our June participants below - it was great to talk with you all.

                  These sessions are open to anyone to join and ask questions, get clarity, offer suggestions about the OCA.

                  Some of the questions from June included:

                  * What is the OCA's strategy?
                  * How can we make people know of the OCA and understand the benefits?
                  * What are the business models of community members?
                  * Is there a working group on documentation? How to join?

                  Please, join us for the July session:

                  Tuesday 16th July at 8pm CEST/ 6pm UTC here:

                  The OCA is in the Fediverse!

                  During our first Open Live session in May, we were asked why the OCA was not on alternative social media platforms (other than LinkedIn, Facebook and X). To be honest there was no reason why, except a lack of time and motivation to do so.

                  This has now changed and you can follow the OCA adventures here:

                  Great Tool at the OCA

                  Adrien Peiffer, ACSONE - Odoo DevOps with Kubernetes 

                  This talk has been one of the most popular videos on our YouTube channel following the OCA Days 2023. 

                  Deploying Odoo in Kubernetes enables us to offer our customers a portable and scalable solution that ensures high availability in a varied and sometimes complex application ecosystem, depending on the customer. On top of this, the declarative aspect of the solution enables our teams to work more efficiently with complete autonomy in their namespaces, without depending on system administrators who take care of overall cluster maintenance.

                  During this presentation, we will explain the reasons why Kubernetes is an effective solution in our context, introduce the architecture we have implemented, and the various components that make it possible to set up a simple and efficient devops solution.

                  You can watch the talk here.

                  TOGETHER WE ARE OCA

                  Consultant Workgroup - where things are at

                  The “functional” working group (also known as “consultants working group” or “non technical working group”) is still alive. The team meets monthly and continue to discuss the hot topics of the documentation.

                  Getting an easy tool for non Github lovers to update the documentation readme’s remains a challenge. New ideas are being explored with technical people’s help, thanks to the call for help in the Contributors mailing list a few weeks ago.

                  Next topics on the to-do list are: 

                  * Continue updating the OCA website

                  * Better organise the Discord channels

                  * Create content for the “great OCA modules & App” series

                  Do you want to join this workgroup? Contact Virginie.
