Topic: Open Source Document Management Systems
Presenter: Tom Conrad
Tom Conrad will be exploring Open Source Document Management systems and their underlying web technologies. DMS systems use a combination of database and web server to control access to and serve a collection of documents. Many of these systems move far beyond the simple storing of documents in a directory to bring greater project control to the chaos of contributed forms and documents. - Some provide complete collaboration sites. Doing this in a fashion that is both easy to use and administer pushes the web interface/tools to a new level. Some technologies used that will be discussed are Google Web Toolkit, Yahoo! User Interface Library (YUI) and the php script language.
Tom is a Senior Engineer at Total Electronics LLC, a contract manufacturer of printed circuit assemblies. With Tom's help, Total has implemented GNU/Linux-based servers and systems that increase productivity and enhance quality at a minimum cost.
