I have been working for ages in the ICT world. My area of expertise? Well, I know a lot about Linux and Open Source software! Maybe that is a bold statement, but after writing 7 books on the subject and more than 15 years of experience I think I am allowed to say this..

I have written the following books (allmost all in Dutch though):

LibrePlan, the missing manual
Open IT voor managers
Linux in het bedrijf
Open Source binnen bedrijf en overheid
LPI level 1 studieboeken (101 en 102)
LPI level 2 studieboeken (201 en 202)

The following list of items are things that came onto my path:

Co-initiator and former-chairman of the T-DOSE foundation wich organised an Open Source conference every year.
Volunteer firefighter in the townships of Culemborg

Business and Outcome track: LibrePlan is a collaborative tool to plan, monitor and control projects and has a rich web interface which provides a desktop alike user experience. All the team members can take part in the planning and this makes possible to have a real-time planning .
LibrePlan is open source and you can download, install and customize it for free. It is usual that you need to manage more than one project at a time, with resources that participate in several projects. LibrePlan was designed thinking of these scenarios where multiple projects and resources interact to carry out the work inside a company. It is common that some of the data needed by planning tools are stored in other applications of the IT infrastructure. When this is the case, if you reuse this shared data you save both time and money by avoiding to insert them manually in two different points. LibrePlan makes this sharing possible by providing a wide set of web services to import and export data.

LibrePlan is an open source project planning application. In this talk we will show you how it works and why you need it. We also tell you when you don't need to.

LibrePlan is een webapplicatie voor het plannen, monitoren en beheersen van projecten. Het heeft een gebruikersvriendelijke webinterface waardoor het net lijkt alsof u met een desktop aplicatie werkt. Alle projectleiders kunnen tegelijk aan de planning werken waardoor de planning altijd actueel is. De ontwikkelingen rond LibrePlan gaan snel waardoor u gegarandeerd bent van een actueel en state-of-the-art product.

LibrePlan is open source software en u kunt het volledig kosteloos downloaden, installeren en naar wens configureren.
