Successful Events in October – SiLA/ELRIG Workshop and SiLA Hackathon

Dear SiLA friends and members,

We are delighted to have had two fantastic SiLA events in October.

The SiLA/ELRIG Workshop at DrugDiscovery 2017 on October 4th in Liverpool, UK, was an overall success with a high attendance of 60 people and great talks given from 10 presenters across users, suppliers, standards and future technologies. We would like to thank all presenters for their time and valuable input on the topic: The Way to the Next Generation Lab of the Future – What, Why, How? Presentations of the workshop are available for download in our download section.

On October 19th, SiLA invited for another Hackathon at BSSE in Basel. Thanks again to UniteLab for preparing and hosting the event!

The team, based on three groups, was on the high-level target of developing real components and concretely explore implementations for various aspects.

1. SiLA Dispenser: A dispenser was made SiLA 2 compatible using discovery, designing features and code gRPC Server & Client. The driver was developed on a Raspberry Pi.

2. Virtual Balance: An example use case was given and features were defined accordingly. The team included the usage of a “non-immediate command” and showed a possible implementation in Java.

3. Virtual Barcode Reader: An example use case was given and features were defined accordingly. The team defined and implemented use cases that requires proper error handling over gRPC in Python.

We would like to thank all participants for their efforts and time to help to accelerate the development of SiLA 2.
