Free Software Bazaar
17 May 2006, 18h30 - 22h00
Aula Congress Centre, Delft

In 1997, Eric S. Raymond wrote his article "The Cathedral & The Bazaar", which changed the view on software development dramatically. It sets the image of a large number of unorganized people gathering at a bazaar, creating powerful software together. No-one is telling them what they must do, progress in true freedom.

The Free Software Bazaar is a unique opportunity to meet other software developers, to get involved in the creation of Free Software. Meet the people you only know from email, discuss the latest developments, and have heated discussions about the future.

The Free Software Bazaar during SANE 2006 has a little broader focus: the freedom of cooperation on Internet. Freedom not only limited to software development, but also freedom of speech and organization, free software use, and privacy. PGP and CAcert keysigning, short "lightning"-talks, and BoF sessions will be on the program as well.

Visit the current time table to find out the time and location details of the talks and BoF's.
