Event Description

Software Free Day is one of the biggest international annual events for promoting Free and Open Source Software, organized in hundreds of cities across the globe. This year, SFD would be also organized by Vietnam Free and Open Source Software Association in Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh and some other cities. During this day, a lot of activities would be held for thousands of attendees.

A small team of Fedora Ambassadors are invited to the event in Hanoi and organize some Fedora related activities there. This is also a good chance for active Fedora Ambassadors in APAC meet together once more to discuss critical issues like budget planning, mentoring, etc. face to face.

While The SFD event wiki page is mainly in Vietnamese, all Fedora related activities would be listed separately here and linked to that main page.
