Both myself and our CEO Larry Augustin were in Berlin last week to speak at LinuxTag 2010. For those not familar,LinuxTag is Europe’s largest open source conference and expo, bringing professional users, decision makers, developers, beginners and the Linux community together for a 4 day event packed with well over 100 vendors and over 40 sessions.
I spoke on Wednesday afternoon, giving my “SugarCRM: Your next business application framework” talk ( which was very familiar to the same talk I gave at SugarCon this past April ). The talk was received well, and for many it was their first exposure to the how powerful and easy to use the SugarCRM framework is. I also gave an interview to RadioTux, Germany*s only Linux Radio, about developing on SugarCRM and the upcoming Sugar 6 ( the audio for the interview was unfortunately lost, however we have agreed to redo the interview at a later date ).
Larry had a keynote on Friday afternoon entitled “The Move Towards Open Source and Open Clouds“. His talk centered on the new emerging trends of the software business and cloud computing, and how open source technologies and open source development methods and leading the charge. He also gave an interview to RadioTux onsite, talking about his history in open source and how open source principles can power the entrepreneurs of the future.
I would like to personally thank the organizers of LinuxTag for the opportunity for Larry and myself to participate in the conference, and hope to able to come back again next year.
