OSUM Club @ Alexandria University

About Us:

This is the Alexandria University Open Source University Meetup group. Our goal is to promote the message of open source in our campus and help with promoting it all over our city.

Website: http://www.alex.edu.eg/

Location: Egypt

School Alexandria University

Members: 948

Goals & Objectives:

Our goal is to foster a general understanding of software freedom, encourage adoption of free software and open standards and celebrate software freedom and the people behind it.

By this we hope to increase the awareness of open source software among our community.

Our mission is to spread the word of open source in our city in every possible way, to give students the urge to learn, use, develop and share different open source technologies, to tell students about technologies that they would want to use and help them use it during this period.


Software Freedom Day (SFD) is a worldwide celebration of Free and Open Source Software (FOSS). The goal in this celebration is to educate the worldwide public about the benefits of using high quality FOSS in education, in government, at home, and in business -- in short, everywhere! The non-profit company Software Freedom International coordinates SFD at a global level, providing support, giveaways and a point of collaboration, ...but volunteer teams around the world organize the local SFD events to impact their own communities. The event targets people interested in FOSS technology and principles but also -mainly- people who don't have any background, don’t know anything about open source but are willing to learn about it.

We believe that providing the public with information about open source will increase the adoption of open source software and replace- to some extend - closed source software.
