Computerized Accounting System using FOSS Software

Today 80% of Industries are based on FOSS software (Google, IBM, NASA, Wikipedia...). Companies specifically chose open source because of security and quality. Web companies like Twitter, Facebook and Netflix understand that open source can be more a powerful weapon for recruiting and retaining top engineering talent. Free and open-source software (FOSS) allows users and programmers to edit, modify or reuse the software's source code. This helps the end user to easily modify the software as per the business need or fix the faults and improve the application. FOSS respects the Software and User Freedom. The workshop will focus on Computerized Accounting System using FOSS Software.
"In India, open source software will have to come and stay in a big way for the benefit of our billion people", said by Dr A P J Abdul Kalam.
