At Novell Open Audio we take you into the back rooms of Software for the Open Enterprise, where you can find Novell’s best and brightest technologists. Interviewing hackers and developers, product managers, and even the occasional Novell executive, our team works to expose what Novell technology makes possible and where it is headed next.
Our staff is comprised of people like you: we think Novell technology is cool. Always has been, always will be. Our show follows input and guidance from our listeners. If you want to request a guest for us to interview or a Novell-related topic to cover, then leave us a message by email, telephone or Skype.
