- Tommy Wilson, Independent, USA
In this session, attendees will learn the basic building blocks of how to construct an open source museum platform which encompasses both the business and collections domains. Modeling from the system at The Fabric Workshop and Museum, a recognized leader in the field of contemporary arts, discussions will be held on choosing hardware platforms, granting that is available, and designing for commodity hardware. Then, the discussion will move into software and interoperability from the operating system level up to public facing systems.
