Requirements Bazaar, the Web-based tool for open innovation used in the WEKIT Community, was presented at FOSDEM on Sunday, the 5th of February 2017. Located in Brussels, FOSDEM (Free and Open Source Software Developers’ European Meeting) is one of the biggest open source conferences worldwide. It is organized as a non-commercial, two-day conference that attracts around 8000 open source enthusiasts yearly. In total, 645 lectures were given about diverse topics like Linux, community management and Internet of Things.
Our talk introduced the methodology, concepts and technical details, and was attended by around 50 people in the audience and more on the live stream. In a hands-on session, we presented how to enter and discuss new ideas. The questions from the audience gave positive feedback and encouraged further commitment.
Requirements Bazaar is an open innovation platform with the main goal to bring together users and developers to discuss new features. The tool is currently available in four languages. When opened on a smartphone, it can be saved as an app on the home screen. It was developed by RWTH Aachen in several European funded research projects and is now used in the WEKIT community to gather ideas about Augmented Reality at the workplace.
