Hi Jan,

Thanks for the mail. I would like to join in next time, as several of our teams are working on products (for Amsterdam) that need openzaak backend services, and we are planning on running openzaak backend instances at least as a development facility. Not sure if I need to join this meeting, the tech or the product steering committee.

    • Update of APIs for customers, so that OpenZaak follows the ZGW API standard as closely as possible
    • Content and theme of the website

Website Openzaak.org

Felix presented the first website for OpenZaak. It is a start and a proposal to the community and it is not finished. He also talked a bit about the new signalen.org website and we could use the website for OpenZaak. He also presented a few technical details which might limit content contribution/edits but proposed to have a look at it with the community and decide how to move forward. Discussing the website content and layout will be an agenda point for the first product steering meeting.
