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
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.
