Hey there freedom lovers, 

It is that time of the month again where we get together to discuss all things digital freedom. 

This month Tatiana Lenz is going to be talking about her experience as a Fellow with Code for Australia, working within the Victorian State Government's digital innovation program "Code for Victoria II - Women in Tech." Tatiana will touch on a couple of things:- the idea of civic tech, the inclusion program that was specifically aimed at recruiting women, building capability and empathy within the Public Service and the use of FOSS software.

Technically Tatiana will walk through the solution the team came up with, using free software, for rendering PDFs into text and HTML in order to make them accessible.

There will also be the usual Gnews of the month followed by dinner and discussion at KL Bunga Raya after the event

Doors open at 6pm with the main event starting at 6:30pm and dinner to follow in North Melbourne after 8:30 pm.

All are welcome.
