Software Freedom Day (SFD) is an annual worldwide celebration of Free Software. SFD is a public education effort with the aim of increasing awareness of Free Software and its virtues, and encouraging its use.
At Open Labs we are celebrating Software Freedom for the first year featuring:
– Why Software Freedom matters (presentation by Baki Goxhaj)
– Installation of Ubuntu in Albanian (presented by Dashamir Hoxha)
– Installfest (bring your laptop and we will install you free software)
– music, fruits and stickers
A little story:
Software Freedom Day was established in 2004 and was first observed on 28 August of that year. About 12 teams participated in the first Software Freedom Day. Since that time it has grown in popularity and while organizers anticipated more than 1,000 teams in 2010 the event has stalled at around 400+ locations over the past two years.
