Manuel C.

Manuel C. is passionate about engineering, maps and collective learning. 

He joined the Brussels-based workers-cooperative Coop IT Easy in 2019. 

With the help of his awesome teammates he develops modules for various interesting projects in the social economy - from cooperative supermarkets to shared housing initiatives

Some Odoo developers are working as part of a 'worker cooperative' - a legal structure where members are employees and employers at the same time. One of the seven cooperative principles, as stated by the ICA (International Co-operative Alliance), is 'Cooperation among Cooperatives'. Let's talk about it!

This will be an open discussion to:
- Introduce the cooperative principles and look at the landscape of Odoo Cooperatives today.
- Introduce a couple of modules we've built and would like to develop in a cooperative spirit, and scout for others in the field.
- Talk and think about how we could organise such inter-cooperation on a practical level (product planning, task management, onboarding, functional documentation and e-learning).
