We had a dream when be started all of this back in 1996: to
use open source software in all our work. As the open source
movement became more and more important, it was possible to
use free software for many tasks, and today we really use
a tiny quantity of software of which the source code is
not freely available.
Clearly, free software (as in free speech) does not mean free of
charge software (as in free beer), so it has always
been important for us to work with the community and write
open source software ourselves.
We are one of the main managers of the
Perl.It web site and all
the things behing it, and we've been co-organizers and sponsors
of the Italian Perl Workshop for many years, and also of
the European conference YAPC::Europe 2010.
We are also founders and members of the Udine Programmers group.
We help some open source projects contributing code, documentation
and testing. We also manage some projects directly; the ones
on which we've been work lately are:
