Announcing OctConf 2018 at CERN, March 12-15

We are happy to announce the upcoming Octave conference for 2018 [1].
It will once again be held at CERN [2], near Geneva, Switzerland, from
March 12 until March 15.

This four day event brings together many of Octave and Octave Forge
developers, as well as members from the community. It is the ideal
place to meet other members, to get help, and show Octave projects.

We are still working out the details of the programme but there will
be one day dedicated to workshops and coding projects, and another for
an unconference. If there is a topic you would like to have
discussed, or a workshop on a specific topic, please contact us.

While registration is free, there is a limited number of spaces.
Please register at the CERN's OctConf page [3]

Here are some questions answered so far:

* Funding: This is for a student or fresh grad (BS, MS, or PhD) and nominally runs ten weeks, but in the past, this has been easy to extend into the fall. I believe that the pay is comparable to other big companies, and it scales with education level.
* Features: The only one I explicitly know about is that we define local functions in classdef files [1], and jwe tells me this has even been fixed on master. I expect that this is just the tip of the iceberg, but I'm willing to throw in a summer's worth of time and money to find out. The code we're trying to run is GUI-less, but uses many classes and subclasses, and uses mex to run the actual code of interest.
* Open/closed source: Our codebase (touch-sensing algorithm library) is closed-source, but of course the Octave development would all go back upstream. If the intern gets our framework up and running in Octave before the end of the summer, they'd be free to choose between more Octave dev or to work on our touch algorithms. The corporate culture is strongly in the closed-source camp, but I'm trying to establish an example of how contributing to the open-source ecosystem demonstrably helps our bottom line.

If you're interested, please submit a resume via the job ad or ask in the emailing list (person in charge is Nickolas Fotopoulos).

I am happy to announce a new release of the geometry package[1]. Thanks a lot to the OF admins for helping out and pointing to all the problems in the package. Thanks also to Philip Nienhuis for his insistence on improving the polygon clipping functionality.

This release includes loads of new functions see the NEWS[2] file.

With this release geometry should be considered a fork of Matgeom[3], since we have functions that extend Matgeom. However the package still does not includes all basic Matgeom functionality. From now on the process of adding Matgheom functions will be much faster. In the past I tried to fix all functions documentation before adding them to the geometry package, but this was delaying the process too much. Now, functions that are tested in octave will be added almost without adaptation. I hope that over time, and thanks to user reports, documentation will be improved and functions will become more efficient (e.g. matlab codes tend to be loopy, especially since they have JIT compilation, which runs slowly in Octave).

Enjoy!

OctConf 2017 was a great event!
Despite the frenzy we had to go through to get it in shape in the last 25 days, the hosts did an excellent job (thanks!) and everything went smoothly.

There was plenty of interesting discussions and we will try to share the link to slides and material asap.

In the last day of the conference we set the skeleton for the next OctConf 2018 [1]. The wiki will be updated from now on and we will let you know when the event is fully defined (let us know if you have suggestions). For now: It will take place in March 2018, and it will be at CERN again. Start making arrangements now!

See you!
