Computer Professionals' Union (CPUnion) & the Software Freedom Network Philippines
September 17, 2016 @ National Teachers College / Technological Institute of the Philippines
Quiapo, Manila, Philippines
Each year, we strive to bring our celebration of Software Freedom Day to a new level by highlighting the role of Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) not just in everyday computing but in nation building. For this year's SFD Philippines celebration, we will be celebrating SFD Philippines with the theme, “The CHANGE WE NEED: FOSS, Better Internet, Data Privacy, Atbp.” This is in recognition of the need of the information and communications technology (ICT) community to articulate the specific and immediate changes we need, with emphasis on FOSS, better internet and data privacy. We aim to tell the world that change is not just FOSSible - change is what we need!
“The CHANGE WE NEED: FOSS, Better Internet, Data Privacy, Atbp.” will be a vibrant gathering of ICT students, professionals, as well as FOSS practitioners, enthusiasts and advocates. The event stands as an opportunity to promote and assess the state of FOSS in the Philippines and the world, share skills and knowledge, evaluate recent developments, and collectively chart a way forward for FOSS, better internet, and data privacy in the Philippine context.
