What is FOSS or Free Software? It is software that has been licensed in a manner that allows users to run it for any purpose, to redistribute copies to others, to change the software to suit their needs and to redistribute those changes as well. When we say Free Software, think of free as in speech, rather than free as in beer. We even have a list of examples to give you a small idea of what’s available.

* Associate with professionals and businesses that create and offer technical support for Free Software.
* Celebrate the freedom and vastness of the FOSS ecosystem.
* Educate the public, IT workers, business owner and leaders, and other users about the enormous benefits of Free Software.

Also we have room for 250 folks at the conference. We are shooting for 200 then. That gives us four weeks. We’ve set a goal for 50 registrations a week. So be sure to get your registrations in now.
