Free Software International Forum
13/07/2016 09:00 to 17/07/2016 18:00 (Brazil/East)
17 years following the changes of technology and proposing solutions
Each year the International Free Software Forum has established itself as a place of discussion and exposure of what is latest in free technologies. It is no accident that the Civil Marco Internet, one of the most advanced legislation in the world, came within one of the many rooms of the event. It was the result of joint experts, users and militants, something that is part of the event dynamic organically.
Since our first edition we have as core values to maintain transparency in technology, whether the codes in open standards and the struggle for free and neutral internet.
In 2016 Porto Alegre will again host the biggest gathering of Free Software communities in the world. Together, we share knowledge and innovations, but also concerns in pursuit of our common goal: building a more just, collaborative and free knowledge humanity.
The OCA Days 2020 will be held online.
The aim of doing it this way is to help support the community as we all deal with the global pandemic and the uncertain times ahead, everyone has the opportunity to join in.
This year’s sprint will again be the standard two days but across many time zones. BIG focus will be put on helping to get people active in contributing and continuing to do so, keeping the usual 3 tracks, coding, training and discussions.
Being online only we hope we will be able to reach more of our contributors and offer more support to our “newbies” in particular, a real sense of training and learning.
We want to use this as a time to welcome everyone, the newbies who know nothing and are keen to learn, the programmer who has made one PR, the experienced people who don’t contribute already, the seasoned member who has been around for a long time with knowledge to impart.
We want to support the community and get the most out of this opportunity globally.
The conference will circumvent around video conferences for Training and Talks, that will be pre-scheduled. The OCA will provide a specific platform for this purpose.
At the same time the OCA will introduce a modern Chat platform, using separate channels for the various topics of the sprint.
