The OpenDA association

The OpenDA association is an open association of institutes and people involved in OpenDA. Its aim is to facilitate OpenDA and its community and to safeguard its well-being. The association maintains the website, receives donations (and uses them a.o. to improve the quality of the software and documentation), organises courses and user-meetings and generally promotes OpenDA. It should also take action if the community does not function as it should. That is, for example, if the community does not manage to create timely, stable releases. Note that the association as such is in prinicple not supposed to decide about the OpenDA functionality because, as an Open Source product, the community will eventually decide what is best for OpenDA.
Membership of the OpenDA association is open to any person or organisation that wants to take part in its activities and who has made a significant contribution to OpenDA in some form. By becoming a member of the association, you show that you have an active interest in OpenDA and are willing to serve its community. As a member, you pay a fee to help finance the association and you are supposed to participate in its activities. In return, you get a vote in guaranteeing that OpenDA will stay alive and kicking and you can present yourself under the Partners and Services section on the OpenDA website.
If you are an active OpenDA user or developer and want to become a member of the OpenDA association, please contact OpenDA at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .

As indicated in the section Getting involved, OpenDA welcomes contributions from anyone wishing to participate in it's development. OpenDA actively stimulates the development and continuation of an active community of contributors and users. To this end, parties with a particular stake in OpenDA have started the OpenDA association. Membership of this association is open to anyone who wishes to contribute to the objectives of the association, but obliges you to pay a relatively small annual fee to help finance the associations activities. Apart from the opportunity to help saveguard the well-being of OpenDA, members of the association are allowed to present themselves and their activites on the OpenDA website in the Partner section.
