Software Freedom Kosova 2014

By: Georges Labrèche    September 11, 2014

On the weekend of October 24, Prishtina will host its annual Software Freedom Kosova Conference (SFK). This event is the biggest of its kind in the Balkans; an annual non-profit conference established to promote Software freedom, Open source software, Free culture and Open knowledge.

Already in its sixth edition, the conference  has a solid history of successfully gathering digital actors who share a common idea: “that software should be free and open for the community to develop and customize to its needs; that knowledge is a communal property and free and open to everyone.” (source)

The call for speakers is open until September 15 and talks will focus on mobile web, gaming, and open hardware. Alternatively, interested contributors can apply to host workshops or even sponsor the event.

Registration opens on September 20 but in the meantime you can subscribe for updates on the event’s website and follow the organizers on Twitter and Facebook.

Richard M. Stallman, a freedom software activist and a computer programmer, was a speaker at FLOSSK annual conference in Kosovo in June 2010.
