Sept 15th - Software Freedom Day 2018!

It's time again to get excited about all the benefits of Free and Open Source Software have given us over the past year and get together to talk about how Freedom and Openness can improve our human rights, our privacy, our security and our communities. It's Software Freedom Day!

Free Software Melbourne and Linux Users Victoria are celebrating the 15th annual Software Freedom Day with talks about Open Data, Free and Open Source Software, Open Hardware and of course Linux. We'll also be having plenty of networking opportunities and introductions to local open source technology groups.

Software Freedom Day is a family friendly event and we have a code of conduct we follow. In short: Be respectful. Be mindful. Work together. Please invite anyone that is interested along to help make it a great day.

Entry is free any time with light refreshments on site (snacks and sodas) and the delightful culinary options of nearby Errol st at the conclusion of proceedings.

Hope to see everyone on the 15th for a fantastic Software Freedom Day 2018.
