UK Open Source Awards

The Open Source Awards will be one of the best open source networking opportunities in 2014. Join some of the opinion formers, suppliers, customers and practitioners for an evening celebrating all that is best in UK open source.

Edinburgh (PRWEB UK) 14 January 2014

Come and join us for the best open source networking evening in 2014. the Open Source Awards (http://www.opensourceawards.org) is coming soon!!

Open source is the direction of travel for the software industry. Everywhere you look open source is winning. Operating systems, virtualisation, network management, browsers, mobiles, business applications such as Customer Relationship Management, Document Management and Content Management. Open source is either the dominant technology or playing hard against established traditional vendors.

And open source is not just competing against proprietary software and winning. The deployed solutions are proving to be every bit as robust, secure, cost-effective, free and performant as the open source industry promised.

The Open Source Awards shines the spotlight on the great and often brilliantly innovative work being done by Open Source people and organisations. It's an opportunity for the open source ecosystem to make some noise and get some publicity. We don't have the budgets that our proprietary cousins enjoy but we have a network marketing effect that they can only dream of.

There will be three awards:

1. Person/People Awards
2. Company/Organisation Award
3. Student Award - £500 cash prize
