In the TANGO community, TAURUS is the de facto standard for those searching for a powerful python-based solution for CLIs and GUIs. Initially developed at ALBA Synchrotron (Spain), TAURUS is also a successful open-source project widely adopted by major scientific facilities for their daily operation.
After 15 years of constant development, TAURUS has reached a key point in its history. The emergence of web-based solutions tends to challenge the existence of traditional GUIs frameworks by inviting them to redefine their role or to justify their maintenance beyond the catalog of existing applications. The historical TAURUS maintainers team is also changing and could offer new opportunities in terms of involvement in the life cycle of the project.
The proposed 2 days event will be organised around two topics. The first day will be dedicated to feedback and GUI strategy for the future. During the associated sessions, speakers and attendees will have the opportunity to share their experience with TAURUS and explain their strategy and thoughts regarding the future of their graphical interfaces. Please note that feedback from both computing and operation teams would be appreciated. The second day will be focused on the organisational and technical future of TAURUS itself.
Regarding the organisation details, this hybrid TAURUS workshop will be hosted by the ESRF and held on March 14th & 15th 2023. Speakers and attendees are welcome on site but the sessions will be also accessible remotely.
