Open Source

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.

35th Tango Community Meeting Announcement

Dear Tangoers,

Registration and abstracts submission for the 35th Tango Community Meeting are offcicially open.

This two half-days event will be held on September 14th and 15th from 13:30 to 18:30 (CEST). Due to the pandemic situation - and the potential fourth wave - our meeting will be purely virtual.  

This year, the  "projects status" session is opened to any kind of projects - from the biggest to the smallest ones.  Our wish is to give anyone a chance to present his/her work to the community - whatever is the size and/or complexity of the related project. 

The classical Kernel and Tango Ecosystem sessions will also be part of our agenda. By "ecosystem" we mean any Tango-related tool of interest for the community - e.g., language binding, web-technologies, archiving, control system administration, large scale logging, ...  

We also propose a session providing the comminity members with an opportunity to share their Tango user experience.

Several talk formats will be proposed - from 5 minutes "I'd like to let you know" pitches to 15' deeper presentations. 

Please, don't hesitate to submit a talk proposal with a short abstract describing your contribution.

We are looking forward to discover the latest news from the community.

N. Leclercq, R. Bourtembourg, A. Gotz.
