Sudbury @ Laurentian University
We represent members of the Sudbury community, centred on the Laurentian University campus, interested in software freedom, and draw from administration, faculty, students, and the general community.
Date: September 21, 2012
Time: 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Location: J.N. Desmarais Library, Instruction Room
Plans: Starting at 1:00 PM, we will hold two talks and a Linux installfest:
What is software freedom? - a brief history of software freedom and an examination of some of the challenges facing free and open source software today
Software freedom: your library is soaking in it - a commentary on all the places where free software is used on a day-to-day basis in the life of a systems librarian
Linux installfest - to help seed free software for anyone who brings a laptop or computer and a willingness to invest a little time getting up and running. If you're especially risk-averse and have a beefy machine, you might want to install a virtualization environment like VirtualBox rather than trying for a bare-metal dual-boot install.
Questions? Contact Dan Scott, Systems Librarian, Laurentian University
This event is being organized and promoted with the assistance of the Laurentian University Computer Science Club - many thanks!
