It's almost time for Software Freedom Day, and this year Free Software Australia and Linux Users Victoria are celebrating the 19th Software Freedom Day with an online event. We'll be hosting a range of talks and presentations around the theme of promoting the use of Free and Open Source Software in online communities, schools and workplaces. We'll be having talks about how Free and Open Source Software can help us build communities, improve teaching experiences, and how we can use more Free and Open Source Software in the workplace
This year we will be hearing talks about Free and Open Source software used in the educational space, liberating hardware for wearable devices and Open Source software that can be used for connecting users in a business environment. We'll also be having lightning talks and introductions to local user groups from the Australian Open Source community.
Participation is no cost and we are of course holding the event online. The event link will open directly in your browser (we recommend Firefox or Chromium) so no additional software is required and it will work on any operating system.
Software Freedom Day is a family friendly event welcoming to anyone, and open to people of all technical abilities. Pass on the invitation to anyone you think may enjoy it and help make it a great day. We have a code of conduct available on our website, but in short: Be respectful, Be inclusive and Be aware.
Hope to see you all online for the best Software Freedom Day ever!
Date: Saturday the 17th of September 2022
