Open Day

Saturday, 24th of January
11:00am - 3:00pm

Tasman Rooms - Wrest Point

As a way to celebrate Free and Open Source Software (F/OSS) and showcase some of the conference's exciting content to the people of Hobart, Open Day will be held in the Tasman Rooms at Wrest Point.

This free event will feature a wide range of exhibits and activities ranging from open-source gaming to participatory Creative Commons clip art creating; from discussions about open standards' place in government to using open-source to bring learning tools to remote communities; and from Linux-powered robot bears to sporty cars decked out with open-source powered gear.

Open Day will also host a meeting of the Tasmanian Linux Users Group, where members from across the state will hold an open discussion about how people in rural environments can be a part of the greater open-source community.
