Software Freedom Day Event 2012

Software Freedom Day is a global, grassroots effort to educate the public about the virtues and availability of Free and Open Source Software. Local teams from all over the world are organising events on 15 September.

For this year's Software Freedom Day, our Launceston based team is showcasing some of the finest Free and Open Source Software that we can find. Specifically we will be demonstrating several distributions that demonstrate software from the categories: Media, Home/Business Productivity, Games and Operating Systems.

The spirit of open source is community, and we feel that Software Freedom Day represents a way of building a stronger community both globally and locally.

Location: Launceston - Gateway Baptist Church Hall 22 Wellington St.

Opposite Morty's Food Hall
