Software Freedom Day?
Software Freedom Day is a worldwide celebration of Free and Open Source Software (FOSS). Our 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 businesses - in short: everywhere!
When you hear about hackers in the news, it's often about breaking into computers or networks. You won't find this here. A hackerspace is a place where people who love technology meet each other and get creative: discover new uses for existing technology, teach each other new things. As a ground rule, we all love to share what we know. We often organize workshops - most of them are open to everyone. In Brussels we have two hackerspaces (and some fablabs, a LUG and a makerspace), there are around ten in Belgium. See the site for more details.
We plan to organize a full day of events around FOSS, with:
- Workshops targetting both beginners (how to install Linux / Free-your-Android) and advanced users.
- Conferences around Free software, both societal and technical.
- A big barbecue in the evening.
We target around 40 participants.
