The GNU Project is celebrating its fortieth anniversary with a hacker meeting in Switzerland, which will feature presentations about various GNU packages, hacking, and making new releases. Among the speakers are celebrities such as Richard Stallman, the founder of GNU; Free Software Award winner Sébastien Blin of GNU Jami; the president of the Free Software Foundation Europe, Matthias Kirschner; and several GNU webmasters.

The hacker meeting is open to all who want to celebrate, work on, or learn about free software. For those who can't make it to the event, the talks will be broadcasted. For a preliminary schedule, information how to get there and where to stay, see the official web page.

The organization and financing for this event is done by GNUnet e.V. and donations would be much appreciated to help cover the cost of paying for the venue and other organizational expenses. Attendees are welcome to contribute in cash, and Europeans can also send a SEPA transfer.

Celebration in the US

In addition to the hacker meeting in Switzerland, the Free Software Foundation (FSF) is organizing a hackday for families, students, and anyone interested in hacking in Boston, MA, USA. See the event page for more information.
