The HLUG International Software Freedom Day event will be taking place on Saturday September 21st 2013 at All Saints Church , High St. Hereford HR4 9AA, 10am - 4pm.
We will have free CD's and goodies to give away plus lots of info, demonstrations and advice on all things Linux and Open Source.
The Raspberry Pi will be making an appearance with demo's and a chance at hands on activities and there will be plenty of opportunity for kids, parents and teachers to have a look at Tuxedu the open source linux distribution developed by HLUG for children.
We've also got plenty of information for small businesses who would like to see what Open Source Software has to offer and our experienced and friendly HLUG volunteers will be happy to demo programs and show you what the options are to proprietary formats.
Students off to college may also want to pop in to have a look at the great Open Source software which exists - it's high quality and *free to use and share* - we've listed a few of the ones we use regularly here . Most of them are cross platform which means they work on Linux, Windows or Mac.
The event is as usual free and run on a drop-in basis so you can call in at any point throughout the day.
Our venue (which is fully accessible) All Saints is in the centre of Hereford and has a fantastic cafe that sells very good coffee and delicious locally sourced food. We are within walking distance of the railway and bus stations and a short stroll from Hereford Cathedral which houses the famous Mappa Mundi so why not combine a visit to our event with some shopping and sightseeing in the city.
