Switch to S3 or S4 on the other platform and go in direction Bad Soden or Kronberg. Get off at Eschborn Süd. From the station it's a 10 minute walk to the office.

Directions from central station: take S3 or S4 in direction Bad Soden or Kronberg. Get off at Eschborn Süd. From the station it's a 10 minute walk to the office. If you can (Klaas for sure), buy tickets with a destination of "Eschborn Süd". In that case, you don't have to buy another ticket when you arrive in Frankfurt. If you can only get tickets to Frankfurt central station, you will have to buy a ticket for the metro destination code 50.

The address of the office is

SyroCon Consulting GmbH

As a starting topic we should do a introductory session of the people present and their projects so that we have a better understanding on the backgrounds/goals involved.

The overall topic will be how we can work together organisational and code wise.

  • FinanceStack: an engine that will allow to integrate the workflow of applications
  • Common icons: use a common set of icons to maintain UI consistency across applications and to request a minimum amount of icons to the Oxygen team
  • Level of integration of KCurrency and ISO Codes within applications
  • Minimum Qt and KDE version required for each
  • Targeted Audience (private vs. (small-) business, single/multi-user, access control, etc.)
  • Security issues
  • PGP Keysigning Party
  • Common Report Framework - do we want to work on a report system which generates template based documents, business reports, diagrams etc.? Several options are available.
  • How do fit into/interact with ownCloud?
  • Talk at Akademy 2010
