Hollie speaking at an Open Source event at TCAT<

Maximising your opportunities with Open Source

SLUG, TCAT and BCS

Thursday, October 16, 2014 from 6:30 PM to 9:00 PM

 

Description

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. With grateful thanks to Telford College of Arts and Technology for hosting this event.
