You can notice a new button on our front page. What is this green button for?

Start data model/s

It is the starting point for contributing with a data model to the initiative. It takes you to a form. Let us explain how:

  • We ask you about the goal, it allows others to know what are the data models meant for
  • Name of the directory (the name that will be assigned in the incubated repository)
  • Your GitHub user (we do not disclose it) for granting you the permissions
  • The organization/s you belong to if this would be relevant for others
  • The project you are working for if this would be relevant for others
  • A contact email we disclose (otherwise how are they going to contact you for collaboration?)
  • The industrial domain, to make it simpler to look for similar initiatives
  • You can suggest the names of the data models willing to create
  • Any additional comment you wish

After filling the form we assess if these data models are actually new, and then we grant you the permissions on the incubated repository and you will appear listed in the list of data models in progress.

Calendar of events

In order to provide a simple way to contact the different meetings around the Smart Data Models initiative now you have two new services, a calendar in the right upper corner, together with this new option in the menu. (About -> Events Calendar
Additionally, a very simple theme has been assigned if you are accessing the site from your mobile in order to improve the performance (and the SEO as a consequence)

Survey to the users about the use of @context

There is an option for making any kind of comments.

    Q1: What @context do you use?

    Public to do list

    We are testing a new feature for the users of the portal. A public to-do list.
    The idea is to make public what features, data models, etc are coming in a near future but on the other hand, we would like to open to the community.
    I.e.allowing to set some priorities and to suggest new data models/features, etc.
    Currently, if you register on the site you could add a new to-do item or comment on the existing one.
    It is an experimental feature under evaluation to check if this is useful for global management.

    We’ll check for a month, by the end of the month it will be decided if to keep it.
