Electron Workshop, 31 Arden Street North Melbourne 3051

It's time once again to get excited about all the benefits that Free and Open Source Software have given us over the past year and get together to talk about how Freedom and Openness can improve our human rights, our privacy, our security and our communities. It's Software Freedom Day!

Free Software Melbourne and Linux Users Victoria are celebrating the 16th annual Software Freedom Day celebrations in Melbourne and we're going to be hosting a series of talks about using Free and Open Source Software in the real world.
 
We're going to be talking about what even is Free and Open Source software and why is Free Software so important we want to dedicate a whole day to it. We're also going to talk about using free software for audio production, and how open source is used in the development of open hardware and some demonstrations of projects you could even build yourself.  We'll also be having plenty of networking opportunities and introductions to many of Melbourne's Free and Open Source technology groups and organizations.
 
Entry is free any time and Software Freedom Day is a family friendly event welcoming to anyone, pass on the word to help make it a great day for everyone. We do have a code of conduct on our website, but in short: Be respectful. Be mindful. Work together.
 
We'll have light snacks and sodas available gratis throughout the afternoon and at the conclusion of the day we usually continue discussions over dinner along the nearby Errol st, so feel free to join us if you're enjoying the conversations.
 
Hope to see you all at Electron Workshop on the 21st for another exciting Software Freedom Day!
