During the first week of October the first KNIME Open Source Days (KOS Days) hosted by the university of Konstanz took place in Konstanz. Inspired by the continously growing number of projects in the Community Contributions we believed it was time to bring together the KNIME Open Source developers for a week of mutual programming, discussions, and presentations.
We invited all programmers that have already contributed open source extensions to KNIME or plan to do so in the near future (please note that this is not a developers training, participants should already have a basic knowledge about writing KNIME extension). The primary goal of the KOS Days was to develop existing projects further in open programming sessions. During the whole week some of the KNIME Core developers were be around and assisted with tricky problems and gave hints for improvements. They were also providing insights into the KNIME architecture and ongoing developments. Each community project shortly presented itself to the rest of the community. There was alsp plenty of time for discussions about needs and wishes from the community.
The event was sponsored by KNIME.org and the university.
