LibrePlanet Free Software Conference: Free as in Freedom!

by Matt Lee Contributions Published on Feb 05, 2010 03:46 PM
The annual free software conference LibrePlanet is the place for the free software community -- from old school hackers to brand new users -- to come together and further the collective goals of the free software movement. At LibrePlanet 2010 you can help your neighbor get a head-start in free software or explore the very latest philosophical ideas that will shape computing and user freedom for the next generation.


LibrePlanet 2010 will feature workshops on the most widely used free software tools for working with the web, video, graphics and software development. You can learn about the latest developments in the GNU Project, free network services, digital radio, voice-over-IP, encryption, software licensing, media formats, and view the premiere of a new film on software patents. Plus at this year's LibrePlanet we'll be discussing how you can successfully engage with free software communities, mentor free software projects, and how non-coders can take up important roles in free software projects.

This year's keynote speeches are from the founder of the free software movement Richard Stallman and Electronic Frontier Foundation's founder John Gilmore.

With the increased threats to user freedom and autonomy from proprietary software, this is a must-attend event for anyone who values free speech and privacy in the electronic era.

LibrePlanet 2010 — March 19th, 20th and 21st at the Harvard Science Center, Cambridge, MA.
