Open Source, Open Discussion

Open Source, Open Discussion will follow an open Q&A format. The panelists will speak briefly about their background and experience with open source technology and data, then the floor will be open for general or technical discussions. If you are just getting started with open source solutions or curious about all of the open source buzz, this discussion should be on target and informative. Attendees with more open source experience may be interested in exchanging development or implementation recommendations.
