From the President
Open Source has been around for some time and has become a very hot topic and consideration. We're very pleased to have Jesse Gorzinski from Rochester IBM presenting an "Overview of Open Source on IBM i". We have grown from discussing the possibility of using Open Source to having a lot of Open Source solutions in place supporting organization business functions. Come join us onsite at the Bloomfield Hills library or join in remotely via GoToMeeting. Note our meeting will be held a little later than usual because of COMMON and the holiday. Note the date Thursday May 30th.
