I like developing web mapping applications and do GIS analysis and I'd like to get skilled in the OpenSource variaties of these technologies. I'm currently working for DERM setting up an information management system using ESRI's GeoPortal & ArcGIS Server which needs to interoperate with Geonetworks & Geoserver.
I think OS can work really well in Government or other big organisations when the support network becomes better and more inventive than the support & training of proprietary software, so more training, tutorials and maybe Wiki's for documentation.
I am a GIS professional having studied multimedia and software development and specialised in GIS-Internet in the Netherlands.
