Less than a week to SFD 2014
It’s under a week to Software Freedom Day (SFD) 2014, which is being held this year on Saturday, 20th September.
SFD is a worldwide celebration of Free and Open Source Software (FOSS). The organisers’ goal in this celebration is to educate the public all over the world about the benefits of using high quality FOSS in education, government, in business and at home – in short, everywhere!
Software Freedom International a non-profit organisation, coordinates SFD at a global level, providing support, give-aways and a point of collaboration, but volunteer teams around the world organise the local SFD events to involve their own communities.
For anyone wishing to organise a local event, there’s a handy start guide on the SFD wiki, as well as promotional materials.
If you do organise an event, don’t forget to register your event and team so the event can be added to the 2014 events map.
Software Freedom Day was established in 2004 and first observed on 28th August of that year.
