  2. Universities in iDempiere
    • Students are potential skilled contributors. @chuckboecking offers free ERP academy admission to students working on projects
      • reach students
      • stay engaged with them
    • Create a new section on the website "For Students", providing assistance for them, the idea is to have a list of desired features/potential ideas that the project want. Students can choose and do some as their thesis with the possibility of a mentor/tutor from the project for guidance
    • We proceed like this, until we have created the website section and collect some potential ideas before we discuss further
    • @norbertbede mentioned that Brno/Czech university actively works with idempiere, same case with Frank Wolff in Germany
    • The proposed plan is to:
      • trying to get testimonials and collect information about thesis degrees, etc
      • create the above mentioned web pages
      • then we can try to expand - that information will leverage the approach
  3. Case studies in the new website
    • We get the case studies in PDF, the submitters can use their own layout, the project publishes it in the website with a quote and a link to the PDF document.
  4. How can you help? Call to action
    • Do you know about a university working with iDempiere, please share it with the marketing committee to try to contact them and get testimonials.
    • Update the testimonials guidelines to mention that the case studies and testimonials should be submitted as PDF
