ClucDors2009DORS 2009 – How to overcome the crisis more easily? How to get often better, more innovative and more interoperable IT solutions with much lower costs? How to get rid of dependence on always the same providers? For which products is there quality support in Croatia? You could hear all that on this years conference.
DORS 2008 – The co-organizer of this central and oldest Croatian manifestation in the field of open systems, the GNU/Linux operating system, standards in informatics and Open Source philosophy, is this year again the Central State Office for e-Croatia.
The first two days were conference-type, in which some of the most important European GNU/Linux and Open Source development engineers and promoters of open standards took part. :Alan Cox from Red Hat, one of the main developers of the Linux kernel,Harald Welte(Netfilter/IPtables),Machtelt Garrels (author of the Linux manual and workshop on OpenDocument Format),Andrew Shitov (, PERL),Wim Vandeputte (OpenBSD) and many other domestic and foreign authors.
The third day is scheduled for seminars and workshops.
DORS 2007 – The already traditional annual conference organized by the Croatian Association for Open Systems and the Internet and the Croatian Association of Linux Users, gathers both enthusiasts and business users who would like to hear more about the applications of these technologies in practice.
The three days of the conference are divided into two days of various lectures and one a day dedicated to workshops.
The lectures were held mostly by young experts who presented the solutions and systems they are currently working on. Among the interesting technical topics that were presented were the Alfresco document management system, the Nagios computer and network monitoring system, and the object-relational mapping library in the Ruby language called Rails ActiveRecords.
As in many similar conferences, there was a noticeable shift from the lecture and description mode. which dealt more with the problems of “what” and “how” in a way that deals more with experiences in real application – thus there are fewer and fewer highly professional lectures whose topics are programming and administrative, and more and more those that deal with experiences in already existing applications and expanding to new areas.
Accordingly, the motto of the conference “Open Source at the Gates” is about exactly that – it is no longer so much about a pioneering field that is yet to come, but about something that is already here.

Članovi Foruma su aktivno sudjelovali u nekoliko projekata vezanih uz elektroničko plaćanje, kako ono “klasično”, tako i ono “suvremeno” (elektronica gotovina).
 Godine 1997. HrOpen je uz pomoć EurOpena i USENIX-a organizirao međunarodnu manifestaciju Open to the WWWorld, koja je okupila petnaestak stranih predavača i goste iz hrvatske i nekoliko europskih zemalja.
