Királyrét - 2022-11-23 - 2022-11-25.
On Thursday, 31 March 2022, we will hold the first OBM meeting day, which we plan to repeat regularly every month thereafter! What will this OBMeeting Day be? Well, this is an initiative inspired by the QGIS Open Day, which will be primarily a community meeting and an organised extension of the discussions that took place in the coffee breaks of the previous Biological Databases Workshop meetings. It will be an online meeting place for developers and users to discuss needs, problems and ideas.

Programme plan:
- Report on the latest developments
- An informal discussion on OBM-related topics

This will be in Hungarian only for the time being, but an English version may be organised later if there is demand.

Location: [[ Zoom ]]
