  February 18, 2013
  7:00pm - 9:00pm


  SugarCRM and Open Source
  Joseph Arruda, Senior Product Manager, SugarCRM

  This talk will discuss how a business like SugarCRM is
  Open Source-friendly, how it release its code, how it consumes
  3rd-party code, and how it uses code review tools like BlackDuck
  with continuous integration.

About the Speaker:

  Joseph Arruda is Senior Product Manager at SugarCRM, focusing on
  mobile and cloud-based initiatives for both outward bound products
  and internal tools.  He has been described as an open source geek,
  a policy wonk, and even a bit of a creative illustrator.
  (Joe was also in attendance at LUGOD's second-ever meeting, in January 1999.)

About SugarCRM:

  SugarCRM produces a customer relationship management (CRM) system that
  is available in both open source and commercial applications.
  SugarCRM's functionality includes sales-force automation,
  marketing campaigns, customer support, collaboration, mobile CRM,
  social CRM and reporting.  Created as an open source project in April 2004,
  and founded as a company in June of the same year, SugarCRM is currently
  headquartered in Cupertino, California.  It was named one of the 10
  most successful open source projects in 2012 by Network World Magazine.
