Open Source Management by Bas van Leeuwen

13 May

Let’s start working on the PREFORMA Project!

After announcing that Easy Innova was awarded with a contract for the prototyping phase of the PREFORMA Project to develop the Digital Presevation Formats Manager (DPF Manager). the team has started working hard on it.

In this context this week the team is attending a seminar on open source and community management conducted by Bas Van Leeuwen, the General Secretary for the Dutch Community Managers Association, with wide experience on managing open source communities with more than 500 developers.

The aim of the PREFORMA Project is to address the challenge of implementing good quality standardised file formats for preserving data content in the long term. The main objective is to give memory institutions full control of the process of the conformity tests of files to be ingested into archives.
