Software Freedom Day 2011

Software Freedom Day 2011We’re all set for Software Freedom Day 2011, and have we got plenty of activities in store for students and guests on Saturday, September 17.

As we did last year, we’re going to have short user-friendly talks meant to introduce people to fascinating free software projects. Response to our call for presenters has been overwhelming: this year, we’ve expanded our roster to include more industry professionals AND students from other universities.

All activities will be held at the 6/F Finster Building, home of the Computer Studies Division.
