FSFE President’s Talk/ Palestra de Presidente da FSFE

FSFE President’s Talk: The long way to empower people to control technology
Tuesday, 28th March, 2017  18:00h
Auditório JJ Laginha, ISCTE, Lisboa

 

The long way to empower people to control technology

Software is deeply involved in all aspects of our lives. It is important that this technology empowers rather than restricts us. Free Software gives everybody the rights to use, understand, adapt and share software.  These rights help support other fundamental rights like freedom of speech, freedom of press and privacy.

The Free Software Foundation Europe is a charity that empowers users to control technology by:

  • Helping individuals and organisations to understand how Free Software contributes to freedom, transparency, and self-determination.
  • Enhancing users’ rights by abolishing barriers to Free Software adoption.
  • Encouraging people to use and develop Free Software.
  • Providing resources to enable everyone to further promote Free Software in Europe.

In this talk Matthias will talk about how he joined the FSFE, highlight the importance of Free Software for society, give some examples of the FSFE’s work from the past 15 years, and show how you as individual or organisation can work with us the FSFE and its local associate ANSOL for software freedom.

This talk, presented in English, is followed by a Q&A session you’ll be invited to participate in, and in there we will cover typical misunderstandings surounding Free Software.

 

This event is supported by MOSS, the Open Source Masters program in ISCTE, and ISCTE’s ACM Student Chapter.

Olá amigos,

Como devem saber, se não sabem “shame on you”, o ISCTE-IUL Student Chapter está associado à organização do SecThon um hackton de segurança móvel. Se és estudante universitário ainda tens tempo para formares equipa, inscreveres-te e ganhares este espetacular evento.

Porém, o que me leva a escrever-vos é outro tema. Estamos a angariar pessoal para nos ajudar nas tarefas antes, durante e depois do evento. Afinal o evento são três dias muito intensos e  a malta até curte de descansar.

“O que eu ganho com isso?” deves estar a pensar. Mas eu digo-te o que ganhas:

  • Experiencia. Este tipo de eventos ajuda a desenvolver as capacidades de gestão, organização, comunicação e resistencia.
  • Contactos. Muita gente interessante está envolvida neste evento, são contactos que podes guardar para o teu futuro profissional ou académico.
  • Comida à borla. Não há cerveja, mas há comida para te ajudar a aguentar as horas de desafios. Toda a gente sabe que “saco vazio não se aguenta em pé”
  • Fazes parte de algo maior. Fazes parte de uma organização espantosa
  • Conhecimento. Aprenderás outras formas de fazer as coisas, aprenderás novos temas que até hoje desconhecias.

Quanto estas razões não chegarem, ao estares na organização do evento e nos próprios dias dos eventos não estás em casa a ouvir os pais/tios/irmãos/namoradas/namorados/mulheres/maridos a chatearem-te. 🙂

Agora mais a sério. Queres participar? envia um email para:

Espero ter noticias tuas já hoje!

Já agora, não se esqueças que quarta-feira é dia de SmartTalks.

Sessions recordings

Hi folks,

Some of you have been asking about the sessions recordings, if the sessions are recorded and when they will become available on our youtube channel.

Well, for all of you out there we have some bad news. In this season, at least until the end of this year, the #SmartTalks (and other events) will not be recorded and therefor will not be made available. This is happening not to force attendees to attend, but due some logistics/resources/others issues.

see you at 19h30m.
