Free Software Melbourne and Linux Users Victoria are celebrating the 16th
annual Software Freedom Day celebrations in Melbourne and we're going to be
hosting a series of talks about using Free and Open Source Software in the
real world.

We're going to be talking about what even is Free and Open Source software
and why is Free Software so important we want to dedicate a whole day to
it. We're also going to talk about using free software for audio
production, and how open source is used in the development of open hardware
and some demonstrations of projects you could even build yourself.  We'll
also be having plenty of networking opportunities and introductions to many
of Melbourne's Free and Open Source technology groups and organizations.

Entry is free any time and Software Freedom Day is a family friendly event
welcoming to anyone, pass on the word to help make it a great day for
everyone. We do have a code of conduct on our website, but in short: Be
respectful. Be mindful. Work together.

We'll have light snacks and sodas available gratis throughout the afternoon
and at the conclusion of the day we usually continue discussions over
dinner along the nearby Errol st, so feel free to join us if you're
enjoying the conversations.

Hope to see you all at Electron Workshop on the 21st for another exciting
Software Freedom Day!
