Systems Plus College Foundation Team PILIPINAS
(former SPCF-CITE Team Philippines)
We are grateful and honored that our team, SPCF-CITE Team Philippines has been acknowledged by the Software Freedom Day Organization as one of the winners of SFD 2010 Best Event Competition, as this award meant a lot to our institution and our team together with my co-faculty and students as we put all our efforts and advocacy to open the minds of the people in our region and our country (Philippines) to fully integrate FOSS in academe, government, in businesses and home.
This SFD2011 celebration, we promise to continue the pursuit to this advocacy we have committed as we are also planning to expand our team and targeting to further promote FOSS in the Basic Education Level (High School) and the Tertiary Education (College Level) and working with the endorsement of our government, the Department of Education and Commission on Higher Education in Region 3. Due to the support of 2 colleges of our institution, the College of Engineering and the College of Computing and Information Sciences, we would now be working simultaneously in 2 locations in our institution as we are expecting the growth of the numbers of the participants this year. The program will be packed with new games, more lecture and activities to promote FOSS, 2 separate venues for the event, and expanded target of participants in Basic Education and Higher Education units as we already hit the 400+ mark last year. We are also working on the support of private sectors and companies to support our event celebration and more FOSS give a ways if our request for supplies will be granted and delivered.
SPCF-CITE Team Philippines would now be registered as Systems Plus College Foundation Team PILIPINAS due to the expansion of our team as the support for the faculty and student volunteers kept coming.
This year's theme:
"Broken FOSS Barriers: Crossing the Bridge beyond Future FOSSibilities.."
We are looking forward for a fruitful celebration this year. Our Support to Software Freedom Day Celebration Continues!
Hoping to see everyone in the region to celebrate SFD2011 @ Systems Plus College Foundation, Balibago, Angeles City on September 17, 2011 from 9:00am onwards.
