Time: 6 pm
Place: Virual Meeting Room  https://meet.gwdg.de/b/jul-acy-x7x

CaosDB is a (research) data management toolkit developed at the MPI-DS in
Göttingen, since then released to the public at https://gitlab.com/caosdb

Description by the speaker: Managing data in changing environments can be a daunting task.  SQL databases are too inflexible, pure key-value stores often lack good tools for defining  consistent data models.  CaosDB aims to provide a comfortable toolkit to set up your own data management system, where the object-oriented data model can be changed on the fly.  Additionally it comes with a human-readable yet powerful query language, a web frontend and a Python library. And it’s free  software (AGPL)

If you want to play with CaosDB yourselves, it is recommended to install the Python library via

pip3 install –user caosdb

or directly from https://gitlab.com/caosdb/caosdb-pylib.  An example instance will be available at https://demo.indiscale.com, but beware, its content is reset once every night.
