September 20 – Software Freedom Day

Posted on September 20, 2014

A conference to explain what sorts of free software is out there, and why free software is a good deal.

Or an “Install-Fest”! 

That's when inexperienced computer users bring their computers and the operating system or program disks that they wish to use, and experienced users help them install and get started.

Or demonstrations of free software products...or discussions...or workshops...

Or...?

Software Freedom Day has been held the third Saturday of September since 2004, with events held around the world to spread the word about great free software and how to use it.


I use some of the most common sorts of free software, including Open Office and Calibre. I use free apps on my phone and free games on Facebook and a variety of websites.

Here are some free software programs and websites for kids:





  • Starfall phonics and ABC exercises online 


  • Code-dot-org – to learn coding (computer programming), of course! 


Also on this date:
