The Working Centre is a Kitchener-based not-for-profit community organization that helps people in a variety of ways: job searching, refurbished bikes, community kitchen, thrift shop and computer recycling. We hosted the Kitchener Software Freedom Day in 2008 and 2009.
Events for 2011
- CD / DVD giveaways:
- Open Source software for Windows
- Linux distributions
- Linux install-fest (via PXE booting)
Raul did a couple of wonderful presentations at the Software Freedom Day in 2009 and has confirmed that he'll be presenting again in 2011 and sticking around to answer questions and help with the install-fest.
Stefan is a wonderful photographer who uses Linux and free software for the majority of his amazing work. Stefan will talk about using free software to develop photographs.
We are actively looking for volunteers who can help with the install-fest, who want to prepare materials about free software, or talk about using free software.
