Open source, open days

Are you within easy reach of Weybridge in Surrey? If so, you might be interested in attending one or more of the forthcoming open days being organised by Sirius, one of the UK’s major companies of free and open software and services for both business and the public sector.

To quote from Sirius’ Open Days page:

New open source projects are constantly coming into the market. At Sirius, we invest time and energy to review their suitability for enterprise and workloads. As a service to organisations, both in the public and private sector and our customers, we run open days to explore specific business solutions.

The theme of the first open day is Identity Management and the event takes place on Friday 1st June 2012.

Another 2 days are being organised on Data Management and Online Presence respectively, but the dates still have to be confirmed.

Speaking to Sirius on the phone earlier on, the Identity Management day will involve presentations by both Sirius CTO Andrew Savory and CEO Mark Taylor, plus case studies and a barbecue!

For an invitation to the Open Days, please complete the form on Sirius’ Open Days page.

In other news, Sirius is also sponsoring this coming weekend’s Flossie 2012 unconference in London (news passim) and Maz Khan has written a post on Sirius’ reasons for sponsoring Flossie, including the low level representation of women in the IT sector generally.
