Note: The LibrePlanet Florida Team is currently inactive. If you would like information about efforts in South Florida (Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach counties) you will find it on the LibrePlanet South Florida team page. If you would like to organize efforts in Florida as a whole or in another major area (Gulf Coast, Tampa Bay, Jacksonville etc.) follow the instructions in the new team documentation. You may make use of the libreplanet-dev mailing list if you run into any technical issues. Also feel free to contact the South Florida organizer for further guidance.

About Us

We operate in accordance with the LibrePlanet Mission Statement and Code of Conduct.

The LibrePlanet Florida Team is a group of volunteers and activists organized around furthering the ideals of free software and related issues concerning digital rights as necessary means for a free society.

This group is working towards a free society through free software, but we 'are not' just a GNU+Linux User Group. We may promote any software that respects the freedom of its users. We recognize that some people choose to make compromises, temporary or otherwise, with proprietary software, and some who may not always say GNU+Linux, or "free software" instead of "open source", and we welcome those people to join us and discuss their thoughts, but as a LibrePlanet team, we frame terms accordingly. We are open to people of all levels of interest in free software and welcome new participants.

The vision for this group is one in which we can meet about free software, occasionally face to face. Florida is a state that has many information technology professionals, rich population, and many areas for events. Hopefully this group can help us all learn from each other and advance the fields of software engineering, system administration, and other types of engineering, all with free software.
