What is SFD about?
Software Freedom Day (SFD) is a worldwide celebration of Free and Open Source Software (FOSS)... Our goal in this celebration is to educate the worldwide public about the benefits of using high quality FOSS in education, in government, at home, and in business -- in short, everywhere!Everyone is invited to attend, even if you disagree with the free software movement and would like to argue your point. Different things will happen at the various events, but in some of them there is coffe, pizza, discussions, hackfests, barcamps, and so on.
Definitely a great chance to spread the word, meet other free software enthusiasts and generally have a good time.
