We’ve recently been forging links with the UK’s larger open source software community and have joined the Open Source Consortium. Another interesting organisation is Guildfoss who have asked us to speak at an event on 9th June at the British Computer Society’s offices in London on discussing the skills necessary for building content management systems (search being an important part of this).
Guildfoss are also organising the the ‘open government’ stand at the SmartGov Live show on June 14th-15th (part of the Guardian’s Public Procurement Show), where we’ll be talking about and demonstrating a range of solutions based on open source search, including LucidWorks Enterprise. Do let us know if you’re attending the show and would like to meet up.
We’re also helping with a new search event to be held in London in October – Enterprise Search Europe. One of the major themes of this event will be open source enterprise search and there are some fascinating presentations and workshops lined up.
