Newsletter BibLibre March 2014


Welcome on the March edition of BibLibre’s newsletter.

February was marked by numerous exchanges between developers and project managers BibLibre and Afi about AFI OPAC 2.0. Between functional demonstrations, discussions and technical work on our work practices, we are preparing to strengthen development efforts and implementation of the product in the coming weeks.

A first meeting took place in Annecy with all our developers on Koha, Wheke and Afi OPAC 2.0 during the last week of January. The opportunity to talk about the technical architecture, tools and actions to complete to start a healthy collaboration. After this week, exchanges continued during a half day reserved every week. During the follow-up points of each team, everyone is invited to be an observer of the practices of others. Finally, BibLibre’s project managers also met several times to discuss all functional aspects of the software.

This sharing time will have their place in March , the adventure is just beginning !
