Software Freedom Day at PACS

The Philadelphia team will be promoting free software at the Philadelphia Area Computer Society on September 19th 2009 from 8:30AM to 3:15PM.

This event is being dedicated to Matthew Rosewarne, who passed away far too young in August 2009. His passion for Free Software was an inspiration. We will have a collection for a donation to the EFF in his memory.

Location

Community Center at the Super Giant Food Store in Willow Grove PA 315 York Road, Willow Grove, PA 19090

There is the lobby - the eating/lounge type area/ and the outside cafe - so don't limit any ideas you or someone else may come up with!

    • Your idea here
  • Freebies
    • Stuff we get from SFD folks
