Hello World! Have you heard anything about SFD? For starters, Software Freedom Day (SFD) is an annual worldwide celebration of Free Software. SFD is a public education effort with the aim of increasing awareness of Free Software and its virtues, and encouraging its use.
This Year, our Team celebrated SFD-2012 at University of Baguio. A full blast of knowledge sharing together with some of the brightest folks in this IT world.
Curious about it?
The experience was priceless!
So what does FOSS stands for and what is it all about? FOSS is a “Free and Open Source Software”.
Basically FOSS means sharing. It is the freedom to copy and re-use the code. The beauty of Give-and-Take, the gift for the community and for those who are eager to explore.
For years, our boss sir Meric, together with his awesome friends had been conducting this wonderful event and to become part of it somewhow feels like becoming one of them. The elites. Lmao.
So the event begun as sir Lawrz opens the talk regarding FOSS then followed by us(the Trainees) sharing our experiences about open source and our views, mission and goals. Not much, haha. The program then continued as sir Jasper discussed KahelOS and sir Rhoane and sir Dennis discussing the GeoServer, followed by sir Macoy, talking about Asterisk and how useful it can be in the community. Next is sir Allan, sharing his knowledge about Mobile Development, giving hints about some plans and software to be released and how did they manage to come up with those. The program eneded by sir Meric, talking about his expertise and knowledge about MariaDB, what are his future plans and how can it be used someday in the future.
The program was made even possible by these sponsors, they added color and twist to the event. Funeffintastic!
