OCA trademark registration

OCA migration to Odoo 10

The board has decided to migrate the OCA Odoo server from version 8.0 to 10.0. A proposal was approved, and the migration project has begun. The project will contribute the migration scripts to OpenUpgrade, covering all modules used by the OCA, and then the OCA instance will be upgraded. We find that financing OpenUpgrade is a great contribution for all the community. You can follow the progress on the coordination GitHub Issue.

Barcelona Code Sprint

Just before the Spanish Community event, "Jornadas Odoo", an OCA code sprint is being organized. It will be held on May 29th, 30th and 31st, in the beautiful city of Barcelona. The event is already a success: we have 90+ registrations, many people travelling from other countries. And for the first time, we will have a team from the Odoo R&D team also participating in the event! Thanks to Jordi Ballester, from Eficent, for all the organization work. There is still room for more participants, have a peek at the event page.
