OCA Days and the Annual General Assembly


OCA Days 2022 registrations are now full! We can't wait to see everyone face-to-face again! Those that we miss at the OCA Days, we'll hopefully see at the Odoo Experience later that week - make sure you stop by our booth!

In gearing up for the OCA Days we will need some help:

  • Sunday 9th October - later in the afternoon, we need to set up the code sprint room. We've got the furniture ordered but we need to get it placed inside the venue. If you can help please let us know below and we'll coordinate times etc with you but aiming for around 5:30pm.

  • Address to come along and help - VAL BENOIT, Génie Civil, Quai Banning 6, 4000 Liège

  • Tuesday 11th October - we'll need help packing down around 4pm as well, please be prepared to help as the talks finish.


What has the Board been up to?

Lately, we've been busy getting things organised for the OCA Days. We started the real planning around April with a newly formed OCA Days planning group from among the Board members. Following regular monthly meetings, the whole Board has now been involved in the planning meetings and daily emails for the last two months. We are lucky to have the team at Acsone on the ground and they have been amazing at doing site visits and checking things out at the venue - thank you!


We are trying something different this year with the OCA Days - we've got a couple of great social events along with our code-sprint and presentations.

  • Sunday 9th October - 8pm - Social Kick-Off event at Brasserie {C}

  • Monday 10th October - Code Sprint, Talks and Evening Event (Live Music, Food Trucks)

  • Tuesday 11th October - Code Sprint and Talks

If you are registered for OCA Days, please keep an eye out for the email next week with all the practical information.

We have commissioned ForgeFlow to do the Video Post Production of the talks which we will then share on our YouTube Channel following the event.

We are also hoping to stream the talks - all going to plan, these will be on the Youtube Channel in real-time. We'll share the link on our blog on the day if things are working right! We are just in the process of confirming talk times with our speakers and will have the agenda ready to share for early next week.
