Dharmanet is a small netcafe located in West Jakarta. The story of Dharmanet begins in the early of 2004. January 24 is the exact date when the opening ceremony been held here in Jakarta.

The Dharma word actually often means the body of teachings expounded by the Buddha. In Indonesia it often use for one name. My father in law also use Dharma in his last name. I inspired to name this open source Dharma Internet Cafe Management.

In the first week of June 2005, most Internet Shop/Cafe in Indonesia migrated to Linux operating system (me too). There also still use Microsoft Windows operating system, of cource with $$$ (the license one).

This opensource Dharma-netcafe aims to help internet shop/cafe who have migrated to Linux and have not yet find the software for managing time billing.

And I choose Semar as the symbol of dharma-netcafe because of Semar and his sons ponokawan symbolizing the four good lessons from :

  • Guru (teacher) and knowledge
  • Examples of good leaders on other people
  • Own experiences
  • Divine inspirations

    Indonesia Go Open Source

    It is a national effort to strengthen national information technology system as well as to exploit global information technology development through utilization and exploitation of Open Source Software (OSS) . OSS Software where the source code (the language in which the program is written) is freely distributed, and it is developed, or improved through public collaboration.

  • Can be freely modified and developed over time
  • No discrimination against persons or groups
