It's seem that Ray is really interessed to review our english ! ;)

MY SUGGESTIONS

New Odoo Apps Platform
On November 18th, Odoo SA announced the release of the new Odoo Apps platform. Some of the features of this new version are portal for apps contributors, statistics about modules, new design with a cover per module, ranking of contributors. 

This new version of Apps allowed us to discover that not only the OCA is the top provider of Odoo modules with 950 modules, but they are also the most downloaded ones with more than 90 000 downloads so far. This is a great recognition of the community's work and effort. Thank you very much for your trust and confidence. Do not hesitate to rate the OCA modules you use to make sure they are properly maintained.

Tell us what you think

The OCA launched last week a survey to remove or at least lower the barriers for anyone to contribute to the Odoo community. Whatever your skills and availability, there is something you can do so let's determine together what and how you can contribute.

It takes only a few minutes to fill in and it can change a lot. Help you make a difference:

Welcoming the next generation

On December 1st, the Free Software House opened its doors in Montreal, Canada. Its mission is to improve university students software development skills and hiring potential through practical experience on free and open source software projects. More than 100 students have already registered to participate in 23 projects including a few OCA ones, like the module prototyper, the canadian localization or the quebec payroll.

Features Highlights

Account Fiscal Rules
Back in 2010-2011 Akretion (Renato Lima, Alexis de Lattre, Raphael Valyi) started extending the OpenERP fiscal position system to support the European "intrastat" tax reports and that paved the way to start supporting the very complex inter-states fiscal mappings in Brazil. In 2012, the work was extracted from the Brazilian localization under the "account-fiscal-rules" generic modules that would soon become an OCA project. People from CampToCamp and others have contributed and today this project is used by French, Canadian and Brazilian Odoo localizations at least. It's also specially used in e-commerce context because we also made sure this framework could replicate Magento tax mapping engine.

Brazil has one of the most complex fiscal bureaucracy in the world. A product is easily sold with 5-6 taxes with non trivial computations, complex mappings and every invoice is electronically sent to the fiscal authorities using some Kafkian SOAP web-services. For that reason, implementing Odoo here (or any other non Brazilian ERP) is a real challenge. Today there are yet challenges to achieve and the Brazilian localization is already the biggest OCA localization by a fair margin. We are proud to show we meet OCA standards and a test coverage approaching 70% though. Because of that challenge, very few Odoo implementation companies have been able to survive for very long in Brazil. Thus few people are aware of how the ecosystem is working under the cover, what are the strengths and weaknesses of Odoo. Few people know why we created the OCA and why it matters. But we presented the OCA with pedagogy and we are full of hopes the Brazilian community will end up cementing around the OCA just as it did in countries were Odoo was used successfully for several years. Certainly the OCA is a cornerstone of this announced success.

 

 

Brazil has one of the most complex fiscal bureaucracies in the world. A product can be sold with up to 5 or 6 taxes that are not easy to calculate.  These taxes have complex mappings and every invoice is electronically sent to fiscal authorities using Kafkaesque SOAP web-services. For that reason, implementing Odoo (or any other non Brazilian ERP) in Brazil is a real challenge. Today there are still challenges and the Brazilian localization is already the biggest OCA localization by a big margin. We are proud to show we meet OCA standards and a test coverage approaching 70%. Very few Odoo implementation companies have been able to survive for very long in Brazil. Thus not many people are aware of how the ecosystem is working under the hood and what the strengths and weaknesses of Odoo are. Few people in Brazil know why the OCA was created and why it matters, but we are hopeful the community here will end up rallying around the OCA just as it did in countries where Odoo was used successfully for many years. The OCA is a cornerstone of this Brazilian success.
