At OpenAdvantage, we keep running across West Midlands organisations using open source all the time. There are probably hundreds, maybe 5% (or less) of which we've had any interaction with. I'd like to uncover these hidden open source users, as it's great to hear about organisations successfully using open source.
So I suggested we host a "showcase" event, where those companies get to do lightning (10 minute) talks about what they've done with open source. I've just put up a flyer describing the showcase, which includes instructions about how speakers (we're looking for 10) can get involved. Unfortunately, we can't pay anyone for attending, but hopefully it will be great fun and a good opportunity for networking.
If you're interested, and you're based in the West Midlands, please get in touch, as we'd love to hear from you.
