Event Details

Software Freedom Day is a worldwide celebration of Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) with the objective of educating people about the benefits of FOSS in education, government, businesses and for personal use. The event is aimed at bringing the FOSS community in Delhi/NCR under one roof, provide a platform to showcase their work and organise hands-on workshops to empower and educate participants. As the FOSS movement forms the basis of a free and open internet, the event will also talk about importance of online privacy and provide training on tools that can help us preserve our online privacy to limited extent.

Come and join us for an evening of learning via one on one interactions over refreshments and hot tea! You will meet people who are experts, passionate about Linux, Python, OpenData, Wikipedia, Visualizations, Free Speech, Privacy rights and get a chance to build collaborations.

Even if all this sounds like Greek, come by to get a glimpse into the amazing world of FOSS where “Hack” is not just a four letter word!

Please bring your laptops to get the maximum benefit out of the training sessions.
