On October 16 – a Thursday night we have a series of talks at an event at Telford College
Please register on this link: Maximising your opportunities with Open Source
This is organised by ourselves Shropshire Linux Users Group and British Computing Society (Shropshire) and support of Computing Dept. at Telford College
Have you ever wondered whether you are using Open Source enough? Is it the smart thing to do? Is it relevant to my business or career? Is it just for geeks? Are there risks? Well this is the event to attend full of informed students and experienced business professionals. Expect big discussions seeded by concise talks describing how Open Source is using in different sectors. You will be surprised, and hopefully inspired to go away and use some of these marvellous tools. However there is always two sides to a coin !
An event not to be missed by smart students or business.
