Software Freedom Day - 19th of September 2020
Free Software Melbourne and Linux Users Victoria are celebrating the
17th annual Software Freedom Day celebrations in Melbourne. We will
present a range of leaders in the Free-Software community that will talk
about the importance of Free-Software to a free society.
The SFD celebration will kickoff with what is "Free and Open Source
Software" and why is it so important for a modern, digital society.
We'll be hearing from leading contributors and organizers of companies
building businesses around Free and Open Source projects. We're also
going to talk about the ethics of software development and the
advantages of building a prosthetic using open hardware. There is also
the opportunity for networking opportunities in our general FLOSS chat
room during the day.
