    WHO: <> Max Lanfranconi, Senior Product Manager for (Sun Microsystems)

    ABOUT: Office productivity suite represents the largest Open Source project, with more than 7.5 million lines of code. Topics will include: * Infrastructure requirements and current implementation (, Akamai, mailing list, projects, Issuezilla) * and StarOffice: two different approaches to an individual productivity suite for Linux * a technical pitch (Rationale, History, data, architecture, tools needed and so forth)

    MORE ABOUT THE SPEAKER: Max Lanfranconi is Senior Product Manager for at Sun Microsystems, responsible for providing technical expertise to the Sun and CollabNet teams as well as the community in building the Open Source office suite. Lanfranconi has held several positions at Sun since joining in 1998, including Senior Systems Engineer and Software Product Marketing Manager in Italy.

    WHERE: Cisco Building 9. The land of NUMBERS. The VINEYARDS conference center. The side we are on is the Silver Oak/Jordan conference rooms, where a large Cisco fountain is usually not turned on. Directions on how to get there are listed at: We've tried our very best for these directions to be accurate. If you have any improvements to make, please let our Web Team know!

    NOTES: It's best if you arrive close to on time, as otherwise there may not be someone posted at the door to let you in. After the speakers end their presentation there is usually a Q&A session, time for job seekers and employers to meet, and often a few door prizes. When the meeting is over people are encouraged to chat a bit, but also to exit the building so Cisco can lock up. Don't worry, a lot of us go to dinner afterward so there's plenty of time to chat outdoors or offsite.

    We look forward to seeing you there!
