Those who are interested will learn everything about the freshly released open source components from the Silicon Economy projects in the one-hour online sessions. The event will start at the end of April with a live demo of GitLab, after which the individual components will be on the agenda. 

With the series of events, the teams from the Open Logistics Foundation and Silicon Economy primarily want to give companies – and here both management and IT departments – the opportunity to find out more about the concrete application and usage possibilities of the components. “Following the release of the Silicon Economy components in the Open Logistics Foundation repository, our goal is for the ecosystem of providers and users to grow rapidly,” says Andreas Nettsträter, CEO of the Open Logistics Foundation. “We see the Deep Dive as part of our commitment to building a vibrant user and developer community.”

A total of eight dates are scheduled – each Wednesday between 11am and 12pm, starting on 27 April 2022. The topics of the first four events are an introduction to the Open Logistics Foundation’s GitLab repository, an explanation of the components of the e-waybill/eCMR, which has already received a great deal of attention from the industry, the IDS Integration Toolbox to simplify the integration of IDS components into existing IT systems or those to be set up, and libVDA5050++, a generic open source implementation of the VDA5050 standard that enables manufacturers of driverless transport vehicles to convert them to the standard quickly and without major effort.

Each Deep Dive starts with a brief introduction to the Silicon Economy and the Open Logistics Foundation. Afterwards, the researchers themselves present their components and services, usually with live demonstrations. Participation is free of charge. The event language is German.
