For those interested IBM, Open Avenue, developerWorks, and Software Magazine are holding an Open Source Seminar in NYC on November 15, 2000 at the Hilton New York. The event is co-located with BrainStorm Group's eBusiness Strategy Conference.

"You've probably heard a lot about open-source software, and your organization may already be using products like Linux, Apache, or Perl that are developed using an open-source process. The Open Source model for software development has demonstrated that geographically dispersed developers can successfully collaborate via the Web on large-scale development projects, even though they rarely meet in person or even talk on the phone."

"But how does the Open Source model work outside the community of expert "hackers"? What are its implications for vendors of proprietary technology? For application development professionals within commercial IT shops? And will it work for your organization?

  • Find out why leading technology vendors are open sourcing key technologies, and how to put the power of community development to work for you
  • Discover how commercial development organizations and IT consultants can successfully leverage the concepts and practices of the Open Source model to collaborate via the Web
  • Learn how an emerging new Open Model -based on the early success of Open Source Software will change the way applications get built, for the better!"
