    Selling FOSS solutions to your boss


  Ever had a sparring match with a manager or executive who simply
didn't understand the need or purpose of your IT project? Perhaps you
explained the technical elements but it was completely missed by
management. Sometimes it seems geeks and suits speak two different
language - because they often do. Want to learn how to sell that FOSS
solution internally or replace that closed solution with your chosen
open one? Join us for a fun exploration of some simple metrics that can
benefit you in communicating with those in the business arena.
