Open Source Is Awesome


As a counterpoint to Bryan Lunduke's Linux Sucks presentation, join us as we show some Linux, Free and Open-Source software projects that have changed lives. From helping the homeless to educating our youth see how our community is using free and open-source software to make our world a better place.

  • Kids on Computers- Stormy Peters and Avni Khatri will share with us the story of Kids on Computers and how open-source software is being used to give underprivledged kids around the world access to computers and the internet.
