Have you ever heard of software freedom day? 

 

If not then you’re lucky we have. 

 

Software freedom day was first celebrated on 28 August 2004. Around 12 teams have participated in this day that continues to grow in popularity.

 

This day is now celebrated on the third Saturday of September. 

 

Currently, it’s observed in 100 different cities around the world in 300 different events organized. 

 

What is the purpose of this day’s observance?

 

This day aims to raise awareness and educate people about free software and its virtues. 

 

It encourages people to understand the benefits of using free and open source software (FOSS) in different areas of education, business, government and even at home. 

 

Who is behind the SFD

 

Software freedom international is a non profit organization that coordinates this day at a global level through its support and giveaways hoping that the contributing teams around the world impact their communities.

 

The objective of this day is to inspire people from all over the world to connect and share in a digital world creating more equal access opportunities using technology.

 

Why free software?

 

The free software or software freedom gives users freedom to share and modify it which makes them “free”. It guarantees the right to learn and share this learning with others.

 

What is the free software?

 

  • Free to use the program and to run it for any purpose as you may wish.
  • Free to study how the program works and be able to modify it to your own needs.
  • Free to redistribute copies of the program to help people in your community. 
  • Free to modify the content of this program and to share your modified version and distribute them to others.
  • Free access to the source code of the software. 
  • Most importantly, free to share, which is the main purpose of this international day around the world.

 

Luckily, BIM POS is one of the participating companies around the world that celebrates this day providing its clients with free features and solutions to enjoy.
