An update about the SKA Observatory project with a focus on the control system development activities.
One of our goals in building Control Systems software is to help and facilitate the work of users, beamline managers and operators. Recently, we have conducted a number of internal talks and developed several projects to automate and improve daily work and experiments on the beamlines. During this speech, we will present the most important of them and plans for further improvements.
During the talk, after a brief Taranta presentation, we will show a demo of the latest developments, the project status, the use cases identified, and the future plan. Regarding the community, we will show how to contribute to the project and the outcome of the first f2f Taranta meeting.
