Feedback form is now closed.
Federico will present the work done using OSS to develop, operate and maintain world class ground astronomical telescopes at the European Southern Observatory.
Federico will introduce the ESO projects and facilities, describe basic problems such facilities have, first of all very long term maintenance and one-off highly specialized products, and how OSS can be a great resource to tackle them.
Federico will then present in detail the OSS used for control of the telescopes in the currently operating projects and the ones to be used in the next big project, the 39m ELT.
In particular an overview of the automatic build, test and quality checking infrastructure, to which Federico contributes daily, will be given to the audience. A special parenthesis will be dedicated to Python based waf build framework used for the multilanguage ELT project and the extensions that are being done at ESO for it.
