Software Freedom Day - 1
By Gregg Sporar on Sep 19, 2008
Will St. Clair organized a celebration on the campus of the University of Texas at Austin on September 19. The nice folks in Sun's Campus Ambassador program provided the swag, which was very popular (along with the cookies that they bought). The CDs of NetBeans 6.1 and OpenSolaris 2008.05 moved the fastest, followed by the canvas shoulder bags (Will is modeling a bag in one of the photos).
I tagged along in order to talk to folks about OpenSolaris, NetBeans, and open source in general. We had a good crowd - Stephanie Peco of the Electrical & Computer Engineering department was kind enough to set us up with a prime location. Taking inspiration from Jim Grisanzio, I have assembled some photos from the event:
