On Wednesday we held the traditional hackfest. This year edition was primarily dedicated to users, we tested OTB 8.0 release candidate 1 on different remote modules and processing chains. It was also the occasion to test the latest evolutions of the QGIS plugin (blog post incoming !), to give tutorials on OTB and OTBTF, to test pyotb and eat pizza.
It is said that the core OTB developers gathered to discuss the roadmap for the incoming OTB versions… Stay tuned ! 🙂
