Presentation by Bernard Golden: "Succeeding with Open Source"
With Linux well-established as an enterprise platform, IT
organizations are very interested in other open source products for
their software stacks. However, unlike Linux, with its endorsement by
a broad range of the very largest technology providers, other open
source products require much more responsibility on the part of the
users to obtain support, documentation, etc. The Open Source Maturity
Model (OSMM) enables IT organizations to select, assess, and implement
open source products. This presentation will describe the OSMM and
provide a real-world example of its application for JBoss.
See Bernard's bio on our Web site, http://www.penlug.org/
Bernard will be available to sign copies of his new book, "Succeeding
with Open Source," and one copy will be available as a door prize!
Members will have an opportunity to take a few minutes to...
* Describe their latest Linux discovery
* Ask questions and get help from other members
* Discuss Linux projects
You can just stand up and talk, or give a short demo or presentation.
If you need audio/visual support for your Members' Minute, please
contact Bill in advance to arrange for your needs.
Although it is NOT required, we like to have an idea of how many
people to expect, so if possible please email rsvp at penlug.org if you
are planning to attend.
