Full Description
Open source software is getting more and more press...and for good reason.  But unless you're already familiar with open source software, it might be hard to know what's available and how to evaluate different solutions.
 
Instructor Christine Peterson will talk about what open source software is and isn't, and discuss specific software you can download, install, and use within minutes.
 
Learning Objectives:
- Define open source software
- Discuss two reasons to use and two reasons not to use open source software
- Choose one piece of software to install and use
