Software Freedom Day In The Free State

If you’re in the Ellicott City, MD area near the Howard County Library’s Miller branch don’t forget to join the Maryland Ubuntu Local Community Team this Saturday for Software Freedom Day!

Starting at 10 am our team will be around to talk with the public about Ubuntu, Free and Open Source Software, and open formats. We have a day full of talks planned starting at 11am. We’ll be opening with a talk about why Open Source matters. Then into Ubuntu, OpenOffice, and other applications throughout the day. We’re also featuring a talk about a small business that has leveraged and utilized FOSS to grow and thrive. Additionally we’ll hear how the Howard County Library uses FOSS to enhance the patron’s experience and offers a cost saving to provide more services.

For details on the schedule check out and drop us an email with any questions. See you Saturday!
