Software Freedom Day is an annual celebration of free software held in hundreds of locations around the world. This year, Software Freedom Day is Saturday, September 20th. Find a location near you, or start your own event!
But why just attend, when you can present?
I’ll be leading a 90 minute introduction and workshop for newcomers to free software at Boston’s Software Freedom Day. I haven’t decided yet what exactly to present, but I know I’ll be using some combination of our Open Source Comes to Campus activities. Take a look through our curriculum here and think about whether you’d like to participate in Software Freedom Day by giving a newcomer-friendly presentation, workshop or tutorial. You can teach people how to pick a project, use IRC or issue trackers, help make projects more accessible to people with disabilities, combat impostor syndrome and more!
Feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or stop by our IRC channel (#openhatch on Freenode) to discuss.
