February 1 and 2, the opensource conference FOSDEM is held in Brussels. Since opensource software is a key element for Deltares and OpenDA, I wil visit. More information can be found here.

In the first quarter of 2014, we will prepare the next release of OpenDA. There are a lot of nice improvements and the maturity keeps increasing with every release. This time most of the tests are working even at the start of building the release.

On April 11 2012 Stef, Nils and I presented our first OpenDA webbinar. The topics are installation of OpenDA for windows and calibration of Delft3D-flow. I think this will be a very nice starting point for new OpenDA users and for existing users of Delft3D looking for a tool for automated calibration. The slides can be found here and the recording here.

In February, we finished the release of OpenDA version 2.0, after about 2 months of hard work with the whole OpenDA team. The new release can be found through theOpenDA website.  Much of the work went into configuration of the new buildserver. The nice part is that the build server now automatically compiles and tests all OpenDA software every night for both windows and linux. This should contibute positiviely to the stability of the OpenDA code.
