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 2015 will feature programming for all ages and experience 

*March 21-22
MIT Stata Center
Cambridge, MA*

This year, the theme of LibrePlanet is "Free Software Everywhere." The 
weekend's sessions touch on the many places and ways that free software 
is used around the world, as well as strategizing ways to make free 
software ubiquitous. We'll talk about some contexts where free software 
is thriving, and some others where it needs a push. We'll hear from 
people who have worked to gain a foothold for free software in their 
workplace or community. We'll explore the state of software freedom on 
all of the myriad pieces of hardware we use, including laptops, phones, 
tablets, and even coffee makers. At LibrePlanet 2015, we're taking 
software freedom around the world, to outer space, and through all kinds 
of industries, governments, organizations, fields of study, and communities.
