About this event

In this tenuous time plagued with uncertainty, health concerns, political strife - we all find ourselves isolated and more divided than ever. The ideals and communities of Free Libre Open Source Software have always brought us together. Crossing boundaries of gender, location, race and culture it unites us with an all-encompassing goal of creating something of value. The OSS movement embodies Open Hardware, Open Government, Open Software, BioHacking, Open Science, Gaming, Tech,Maker Spaces and so much more!

We are striving to to show how:

  • Knowledge and sharing can open up countless possibilities.
  • How Science and technology can improve our lives and sharing that knowledge can only make us all better.
  • Demonstrate how privacy is still achievable in the modern world. Tools and patterns that we use.
  • Showcase and share the trials and tribulations that many neuro atypical individuals have to live with on a daily basis and are still able to to thrive in our society.
  • How OSS projects have time and time again shown us how we cherish every use by providing countless accessibility tooling to make it approachable by all.
  • Demonstrate atypical uses of Gaming as a medium and showcases how gaming can be used to educate, entertain and provide a venue for social good.
