credativ UK once again celebrated Software Freedom Day this month. Although it was one of just 4 registered events taking place in the UK, Software Freedom Day is a global event. A lot of time and preparation went in to making sure it was as successful as last year, and it paid off. Around a hundred visitors passed through the doors, drawn by various press releases, letters to local councillors and schools, and online marketing efforts from the sponsors, who included the local Rugby LUG (Linux User Group), social enterprise Cultivating Communities, and OpusVL, among other open source service providers in the area.. This year, organizers wanted to particularly attract teachers and representatives from local schools, as well as volunteers who might be interested in signing up to host or help with a CodeClub.

The UK government is currently consulting on the use of Open Standards and Open Source as an alternative for proprietary software. The proposed policy is being attacked by the large corporations who dominate the market of UK public sector IT and want to ensure government policy does not undermine their market share.
Respond to the Consultation
As part of the open source community we have a responsibility to respond to this Consultation - not just passively dis/agree with it.

Getting Spotify to work nicely on LinuxNote: the Linux Spotify client will only work with a premium Spotify account.
I spoke at the NYC PostgreSQL Users' Group meeting in December, and while there someone mentioned that Spotify is a great music service (and that they are using PostgreSQL!). So I decided to give it a try. The issue was that, while it can be made to work on Linux, the process of making it work well on Linux is less than simple. I decided to document what I did (and my sources) as I had to pull information from several sources and added a few modifications of my own.
There are two main problems to deal with:

OpenERP is increasingly becoming a serious contender in the ERP market, as its features and usability improve. This tip explains how its flexible views provide ways to save time retrieving the data you want. You can search for the exact data you are interested in by just filling out the necessary search filters, but if there is a search which you perform on a regular basis, you have the option of saving filters to make life easier. This feature was added in the OpenERP webclient from version 6.0.0 and is available for all users. Simply go to any tree view and you will notice to the bottom right of the search filters, there is a drop down selection box '-- Filters --'... this is where the magic happens.

Rugby, UK - 19 July 2011 credativ have been helping clients to benefit from OpenERP for 3 years now. During this time we have made 10 deployments from our UK office, including customising and writing additional accounting, invoicing, VAT, and reporting modules for specific client requests, many of which have been sent back upstream to further the development of the project. Our engineers have also worked on integrating with Magento web stores and have merged many branches into OpenERP Server -web and -addons, including improving the performance of the web client by running it behind mod_wsgi.
