About this title


In this book, you will learn where the Open Source movement comes from and what motivates its adherents. You will be introduced to the culture that fuels the movement, as well as the personalities and organizations that promote its growth. You will also understand the strengths of the Open Source movement and how it changes the way in which software is written. In addition, people and organizations wishing to participate in the Open Source world will be given a guide regarding what to do - and what not to do - and why. You do not need to be a technical wizard to read this book. It does not matter if you are an IT manager, a programmer, or just someone who is interested in new trends in technology. This book will peel away the mystery and misunderstandings surrounding the Open Source movement.

Store Description

Our shop is located in downtown Waterbury, at the crossroads of Routes I84 and 8. All are welcome to visit, browse, and buy. Don't bother coming if you absolutely hate shops with full cafes, as some people do, but should you come make time to enjoy a fine lunch or at least a cup of our own Bookman's Blend Coffee. Check out our website; like us on Facebook; read our blog, mostly written by student interns. In short, support open shops wherever the heck you find them. Our retail hours are Mon. - Fri. 8 a.m. to 5. Holidays by chance, very slim chance (always call first!) Weekend hours are limited, though we offer a High Tea (yes, really) from 12-2 on Sat. and usually are around for a few hours before and after, for bookish types. Dealers are welcome anytime, of course.
