Tango is an Open Source solution for SCADA and DCS. Open Source means you get all the source code under an Open Source free licence (LGPL and GPL). Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems are typically industrial type systems using standard hardware. Distributed Control Systems (DCS) are more flexible control systems used in more complex environments. Sardana is a good example of a Tango based Beamline SCADA.
It's a pleasure to announce the first face-to-face Taranta meeting, the software for creating web-user interfaces for Tango.
The meeting will be hosted in Lecce (Italy) from 3 to 4 June 2022.
During the meeting, we will discuss the past, the present, and the future of Taranta; the role, the needs, and the contribution of the community; and how to make know and fully exploit the potential of Taranta.
Lecce is a symbolic city, in fact, the Taranta name has been inspired by Taranta which is a dance invented in Salento (Italian geographic region), and Lecce is one of the most beautiful Salento cities.
All contributions are very welcome! If you want to share your experience/needs with Taranta or with a Tango web interface in general, send a proposal using the Indico page.
All information and registration are available at the following link: https://indico.tango-controls.org/event/52/
The event will be hosted by INAF in collaboration with UniSalento and the Tango Collaboration.
The Tango community meetings take place each year alternately in one of the 15 institutes members of the Tango consortium.
They group together all the members of the community with the developers. They present the last technical progress and agree on the development strategy and roadmap
