    challenges, and use cases” and there is still some space in the program
    for case presentations. If you have a project or similar and liket to
    share ideas, best practices or lessons learned in the session (for
    example with lightning talk style), please let me know.
    TAB is now scheduling sessions and we will should hear about the
