Drupal Lunch

On February 5th Chapter Three and Acquia will be giving a Drupal presentation over lunch at the Thirsty Bear brewing company in down town San Francisco. Gearing things for those reviewing Drupal, we will discuss the software's capabilities, support services available, and give an orientation of the open-source community behind it. After the presentation we will have a question and answer session that will put Drupal in the hotseat.

OSBC: Open Source Business Conference

Open Sourcing the Enterprise:
Strategies to Boost Innovation and Cut Costs with Open-Source Participation


Open source has become an integral part of the software world, whether software developed for sale by vendors like Red Hat and Oracle or software developed for use by enterprises like E*Trade and Disney. The best, however, has yet to come.

To get the most from open-source communities, including significant boosts in innovation and cuts in IT spending, we need to discover new ways to grow them, make them self-sustaining, and profitable.
