LPI Supports Software Freedom Day Worldwide

September 18, 2021

Linux Professional Institute (LPI) invites you to join them, our Partners and our community in Software Freedom Day, taking place September 18, 2021. LPI is thrilled to be supporting an important global event!

Let's celebrate Software Freedom Day 

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.

Software Freedom Day was established in 2004 and was first observed on 28 August of that year. About 12 teams participated in the first Software Freedom Day. Since that time it has grown in popularity and every year we have more than 300 events organized by over 100 cities from around the world.

Participate in an event near you!

LPI and our Partners are organizing events globally! Check out the SFD event map for an event near you or take advantage of tuning in virtually anywhere.
