I’ll be in great company talking this coming week at the eLiberatica conference in Bucharest (see blurb below). … Hope to see you there.
While I am used to giving more technical talks, this time around I will be focusing on something a little different. To fit in with the general theme of the conference, my focus will be on how small and medium size businesses can use FOSS software to get a kick-start on the road to success. The FOSS software pool is getting larger all the time. Whether you run a product model business, or a service orientated one, there is something for everyone. One size fits all is not the case. I’ll be trying to get the message across that there are great opportunities if you take the plunge, with a few tips on how to choose the right tools and technologies to fit your needs.
I’m looking forward to being in Bucharest. It will be my first time in Romania, and I heard the city is fantastic with plenty to see and do. Romanian cuisine looks quite enticing too!
