LibrePlanet is an annual conference hosted by the Free Software Foundation for people who care about their digital freedoms, bringing together software developers, policy experts, activists, and computer users to learn skills, share accomplishments, and address challenges facing the free software movement. LibrePlanet 2017 will feature programming for a wide range of ages and experience levels.
This year's theme is The Roots of Freedom. Many talks will explore the historical roots of free software, including the Four Freedoms, copyleft through the GNU General Public License, and the rights to security and privacy. Others will focus on the movement that roots free software, and the contributions of its members to activism, the arts, education, entrepreneurship, and innovation.
