LibrePlanet is an annual conference for free software enthusiasts. LibrePlanet brings together software developers, policy experts, activists and computer users to learn skills, share accomplishments and face challenges to software freedom. Newcomers are always welcome, and LibrePlanet 2014 will feature programming for all ages and experience levels.
This year, the theme of LibrePlanet is “Free Software, Free Society.” How can free software protect journalists, whistleblowers, activists, and regular computer users from government and corporate surveillance? How can free software, or free software values like copyleft, community development, and transparency, be used by people fighting to create free societies around the world? What challenges are standing between us and our goal of free software ubiquity? With your help, we’ll tackle these questions and more at LibrePlanet 2014, March 22-23 in Cambridge, MA.
FSF members and students attend LibrePlanet at no cost! Become a member now. We encourage you to register in advance, but registration will be available at the door on both days of the conference.
There are two other events, with separate registration, taking place before and after the conference. On Friday, March 21st, community-members will hold the 0th SpinachCon, where users and developers will improve the user experience of free software programs. On Monday, March 24th (the day after LibrePlanet), the Free Software Foundation will hold a GPL Enforcement and Legal Ethics seminar at Suffolk University in Boston.
