Some of you may have noticed a group of food-systems related projects emerging on this forum and coalescing towards an informal “HoloFood” community. Those in this group - specifically BASYN, Shiro and SeedShare - have been ramping up their efforts behind the scenes and continuing to explore the ValueFlows protocol and Holo-REA resource coordination framework. In the process we’ve connected with a few new allies along the way.
So— we’ve decided that it’s time to open this group up publicly and to push energy towards implementing a shared suite of interoperable applications that do useful things at various places within the food supply chain. In this first call, we’re aiming to get a deeper understanding of the needs of different groups and where their software requirements might overlap.
If you have a food-related project you’ve been dreaming of or working on, this is your chance to explore what others are building and to have your input on our shared roadmap.
There is an open agenda online here that anyone may add to prior to the call- we’ll spend the first few minutes going over requests and forming an outline together.
This first discussion will lay a foundation for future hackalongs, where our aim will be to meet these needs by implementing UI components and applications that work with Holo-REA, CommonsPub and other ValueFlows-based systems.
A basic understanding of ValueFlows and REA will be expected. For those new to these concepts, we recommend the following resources:
- ValueFlows for beginners: A Story About Pie
- ValueFlows 101 presentation (given recently in Bloom Network community calls)
- First call mapping Shiro onto ValueFlows
When: Nov 13, 2020 10:00 AM CET / 7pm AEST
(Europe-friendly; we’ll record for US folks to catch up!)
