                   Growing Your IT Business V1.0

SLPWA and OSSWA have pooled resources to deliver a day of business and
technical discussion aimed at sole IT practitioners, and micro to medium
IT businesses who are working with, or interested in, Open Source

When: Wednesday 6 April 8.00am to 3.45pm
Where: Open Source WA, Technology Park, Bentley, Western Australia
