Spagic has contributed to the development of the MyFestival project, which enables the participants to organize their own participation in the Festival of Economics in Trento, thanks to an electronic agenda that is accessible by a web connection and a mobile phone.
Festival of Economics in Trento is a key meeting in Italy, aiming to debate about Economics, Information, social impacts and correlated topics. Its fifth edition, taking place from 3rd to 6th June 2010, offers a great agenda including four days of debates, meetings and lessons, offering the opportunity to discuss and understand which are the circumstances that usually foster the economic growth and that, at the same time, allow to face and avoid recessions. The event also intends to underline how crucial is for everyone to access free and accurate information.
Spagic has contributed to the realization of the MyFestival back-end application, responsible for the process modelling and web-services integration.
Spagic is an example of open source projects connecting two of the best-known OS communities: OW2 Consortium, hosting Spagic project, and Eclipse Foundation, hosting eBPM project that will offer the new core component to Spagic next version. Even if it’s common knowledge that communities usually protect their boundaries, I personally hope that such cross-project examples will help break boundaries and widen collaboration.
