LibrePlanet is where global free software community members and newcomers meet together to learn from each other, share accomplishments and face challenges.
The free software movement is built around the concept that computer programs should be “free, as in freedom”; available for everyone to use or modify as they see fit. Software that is developed collaboratively and shared freely can help us create a more just and abundant world for everyone. We need the free software movement now more than ever, as giant IT corporations are working to restrict our freedom, stifle disruptive innovation, and invade our privacy, threatening our ability to create change in areas beyond technology.
This year, the conference focuses on bringing together the diverse voices that have a stake in free software. From software developers to activists, academics to computer users, this convergence is about working together for the software freedom we need. If you’re interested in technology’s role in struggles for justice, community, and freedom, then you will find a lot to be excited about at LibrePlanet.
Join us at LibrePlanet 2013 and help Commit Change.
