Tango is a software suite designed to interconnect objects such as equipment or software. It is widely used to control numerous scientific installations, including synchrotrons, lasers and telescopes. The development of Tango is the fruit of collaboration within a community organized around a consortium currently comprising 11 members. Initially developed by ESRF, it was adopted by SOLEIL in the early 2000s, marking the start of Tango's expansion.

This Tango Collaboration Meeting was an opportunity to discover the new features of Tango V10 and its ecosystem, and to share the different uses of Tango within numerous institutes. The roadmap for future Tango developments was also discussed during a panel session.

A tour of the synchrotron was also organized; here, Alessandro Coati, in charge of the SIXS beamline, presents the equipment of the beamline.

Last but not least, the event provided an opportunity to meet and exchange ideas on an informal basis, thus strengthening ties within the community.
