Hello, we meet monthly at the South Library ICT lab, 66 Colombo St, to share/discuss FOSS.

SFD has been our annual public FOSS promotion day since we started in 2004: Team Christchurch SFD.

Do come say hi on 19 Sept from 10am and learn about software freedom!

SFD20 Event Report

* We significantly grew Software Freedom Day attendance on the previous two years, which had been absolute minimal.

* We combined the activities of two community tech groups (one old, one new from 2020) to do this.

* We discussed and planned systems for increased ongoing activity, combined.

* We recognised the necessity to implement and focus on online conferencing capacity, as a constant feature of our meetings, e.g. https://bigbluebutton.org & http://wiki.softwarefreedomday.org/VideoConferencing etc. (viz covid-19 limits & convenience).

* We acknowledged the significance of Minecraft culture as recreational, educational and social connecting tool, of interest for all age groups.

* We planned towards growing meetings and adoption of a Hytale culture, to improve upon Minecraft within two years, for SFD22: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hytale + https://hytale.com
