Open Source in London: Social Source 2005
Our friends in London are hosting the second London Social Source event, in affiliation with the global Penguin Day movement.
Adrian from LASA writes:
Social Source UK 05 is for those interested in the potential of free & open source software and methods for the voluntary and non-profit sector.
Programme for SocialSource 2005:
- introductions for those who have had no hands-on contact with Free/Open Source Software (F/OSS)
- case studies
- details of projects going on within the sector using F/OSS tools.
- demonstrations of Open Source software in action
- opportunities for discussion.
All are welcome to attend, whether new to Open Source or already involved in projects, with key stakeholders envisaged as those:
involved in the voluntary/non-profit sector with an interest in their organisations’ effectiveness and/or technology (e.g. IT/Resource managers, funders…) - heard of Open Source but not sure what it is? - come along to find out more)
supporting technology within organisations (“accidental techies”, IT staff, circuit riders (the event takes place on the day after the London Circuit Rider Conference), trainers, support companies and consultants - not sure what F/OSS has to offer? - come along and see!)
already involved with Open Source technology via support or development - meet others in the sector, come and raise awareness, or find out more about the needs of the voluntary sector.
