SDForum Announces Annual Global Open Source Conference

SAN JOSE, Calif., March 10 /PRNewswire/ -- SDForum, Silicon Valley's leading source of information and education in the technology community, today announced the Global Open Source Conference to be held on March 24, 2008 at the Swissnex Annex in San Francisco. Speakers at the event will discuss the opportunities for open source software companies and developers thanks to government initiatives using open source, as well as sharing learning lessons and successes from around the world.

"Open source has quickly changed the global software industry," said Don Brown of Atlassian Software Systems, a speaker at the event. "A huge demand has arisen for open source companies worldwide as more governments enforce policies mandating open source and international markets continue to open."

Marten Mickos, CEO of MySQL AB, will deliver the keynote address at the conference. Since joining MySQL as CEO in 2001, the company has grown from a mere start-up to the most popular open source database in the world. His keynote will address the opportunities and challenges ahead for open source as well as global trends that are impacting Silicon Valley.

"It is a honor to welcome Marten Mickos, one of the most influential executives in this field, as our keynote speaker. This conference will provide a great forum to those interested or currently involved in the increasingly expanding open source community."

"SDForum's Global Open Source Conference will be an invaluable venue for examining new strategies for this surge of growth."

I'm a lonely sensor. I spend all day telling the world how I'm feeling, but none of the other sensors seem to care. I want to be connected. I want to build relationships with other sensors to be more useful for my human. I want my human to understand that when my friends next door are too hot for a while, I'll soon be flaming. And when all my friends go outside without me, I may be left behind. Don't just log my data; use the relationship graph. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Boyd, Engi...

If your application fails to deliver the expected business results, your customers and partners won't care if that failure stems from the code you developed or from a component that you integrated. What can you do to ensure that the endpoints work as expect...
