Software Freedom Day 2013 @BRAC University,Dhaka,Bangladesh


Software Freedom Day (SFD) is an annual worldwide celebration of Free Software. SFD is a public education effort with the aim of increasing awareness of Free Software and its virtues, and encouraging its use.

Software Freedom Day was established in 2004 and was first observed on 28 August of that year. About 12 teams participated in the first Software Freedom Day. Since that time it has grown in popularity and while organizers anticipated more than 1,000 teams in 2010, the event has stalled at around 400+ locations over the past two years, representing a 30% decrease over 2009.

We were lucky enough to arrange software freedom day at Brac University(Mohakhali campus),Dhaka.It took place on the 23rd September.

We set up a booth with the help of Noor bro.


The program was scheduled to in this way:
10:00 am – 11:00 am: Inauguration Ceremony of Software Freedom Day;
