Giles Palmer, of Runtime Collective, will be defining what open source software is, why it is different and the responsibilities and risks associated with implementations using it. He will illustrate how to manage a project with particular reference to those risks and responsibilities. He will look at issues that arise in an environment where both open source and proprietary software are being used, what it means to be part of an open source community and where the future lies with open source software. Note: Although this is not an OSSG organized event it looks like it will be of considerable interest to OSSG members. Please visit the proms-g URL listed below to register for this event.
