Wintercamp

The WinterCamp was a three-day workshop, 4-7 March 2009, sponsored by the Institute for Network Cultures in Amsterdam. Participants were:

- Andrea Weikert, Germany
- Campbell Barton, Australia
- Jean-Luc Peurriere, France
- Matt Ebb, Australia
- Martin Poirier, Canada
- Nathan Letwory, Finland
- William Reynish, Denmark
- Brecht van Lommel, Belgium
- Ton Roosendaal, the Netherlands

Proposed workshop focus was "UI design for 2.5". This includes everything work-flow related, so not (only) the looks and feel of the interface. We also spent some time reviewing the past 2.5 results, and defined the essential deveopment steps how to move on best.  A related topic is also Python for 2.5, which has a lot of unresolved topics still.

The target is that concepts and proposals here get reviewed further online, so we can start working on it end March and during April!

You can use the Blender 2.5 mailing list or the blender.org forums for further feedback.
