Glug hosts free talk on OSS migration strategies
The Gauteng Linux User Group (GLUG) will this week host Sun Microsystem’s open source migration specialist Michael Bohn who will be talking about the risks, benefits and opportunities in migrating to open source software.
Bohn, who is based in Sun’s Hamburg office, is in South Africa for two weeks to provide local Sun staff members with training as well as meet with local government and business leaders.
At the Glug-hosted meeting, scheduled for Wednesday evening, Bohn will focus on migrating to OpenOffice.org and will also talk about his experiences in open source migrations with governments around the world.
Glug chair, Ross Addis, says that “Michael will showcase some success stories from within governments around the world as well as present some techniques, funky tools and tips and tricks for migrating to OpenOffice in an organisation.”
The Glug meeting is free and is open to Glug members as well as non-members. The talk will be held on Wednesday 20 May at 6pm at Siemens Park in Midrand. More details can be found on the Glug Wiki where those who want to attend can RSVP before midday Tuesday.
