- On the history, the future and the lessons learned from almost 20 years of Odoo -

TinyERP or Odoo as it is named today, has come a long way. Started as a student project at the University of Louvain la Neuve, today Odoo is the unrivaled market leader for Open-Source based ERP-Systems.

However, it wasn't and and certainly still isn't an easy journey all the way long. Being as succesfully as Odoo is, is certainly a combination of many factors altogether leading to such a superior result.

In my talk i'd like to share my personal journey and experience of being part of this amazing community. I will shed a light on different milestones of this journey, will try to remember historic discussion i personally had with Fabien and other community members, dicuss insights and experiences i obtained from being a long time visitor at many Odoo events and comment on sometimes weired historic and contemporary strategic moves that shaped the path to Odoos succes. Finally, i will try rubbing the magic glass bowl for the future in light of the contemporary and projected future environment. I hope not only functional people and PMs but also developers and engineers would be interested in jointly sharing their views, visions and their perspectives in this interactive history session.
