  • Alexander Watzinger
  • Bernhard Koschiček-Krombholz
  • Moritz Großfurtner (moderator)
  • Lisa Aldrian
  • Olivia Reichl
  • Stefan Eichert


  • Welcome Olivia
  • Feedback round
  • Schedule next developer meeting, who moderates? -> 2023-11-16, 15:00, Alex moderates
  • OpenAtlas Exchange calendar to coordinate (ÖAW only)
    -> A new OpenAtlas calendar for Outlook is available. Sadly it's only available for ÖAW addresses and also difficult to sync with other systems.
    Stefan suggested to send invitations for (bigger) meetings via calendar, which we will try.
  • Check events
    -> Cultural Heritage-Research in the Digital Age (24-25 October): registration (also for presenters) is required, Olivia will join our poster presentation
    -> EHRI-AT Methodological Seminar (15-18 January 2024): The decision about presenters was postponed

Presentation sites

  • How to proceed with SHAHI static presentation site (#1939) -> Focus on this issue
  • OpenAtlas Discovery meetings
    • Internal meeting to demonstrate/test new workflow with GitHub and Markdown files -> 19. September, 12:00
    • Meeting with FemCare Vienna (in person)
    • Meeting with MAMEMS/Approaching Byzantium (after FemCare Vienna, online)
    • Move MoByz to Kubernetes, meeting with Johannes
  • Testing: should we take an accessibility focused approach for testing? In cypress we could do this with the testing library
    -> Raising accessibility is always welcome and in line with our Mission Statement. But, as some pointed out, it shouldn't get as far as sacrificing functionality or "forcing" developers to spent massive time on it.
