About

LibrePlanet Denver is a group of activists and other volunteers who advocate for the ideals of free/libre software as an ethical social movement and digital rights as a necessary means for a free society.
We operate in accordance with the LibrePlanet Mission Statement and Code of Conduct.

Goals

  • Unite
    • Bridge connections between free/libre software activists, users, and contributors regardless of location and culture
  • Encourage
    • Welcome those new to the free/libre concept and help to provide guidance via education, campaigns, and events
  • Advance
    • Build and contribute to free/libre software code, documentation, and design

Starting Point

  • Where to Begin?
    • The Freedom Ladder is a resource that you can use to begin adopting free/libre software at your own pace.
      • Switching to using a GNU/Linux Operating System (OS) from other proprietary options (Windows, MacOS) involves a learning curve - we are here to provide you with help and support.

Meetings

No meetings are currently scheduled - we will hold routine meetings once LibrePlanet Denver reaches 6 members - see the Join section below!
For now, feel free to chat on our secure IRC channel (#LibrePlanet-US-CO-DEN) on Libera.Chat (we monitor this channel daily). You may also consider attending an open house at your local hacker/maker space - denhac, or visit the Software Freedom School near Denver, Colorado.
