Flossie 2012 is a free, two-day event for women who work with or are otherwise interested in Free and Open Source Software (FLOSS), Open Data, Knowledge and Education.
We’re an independent network of women practitioners that has its roots in social change movements as well as arts, technology and academia. Whether you code, tinker or want to explore alternatives to ‘big-tech’ corporations, all women are welcome to the conference.
The first day will mix micro-talks with birds of a feather sessions about the work we do. On the second day there will be more structured workshops and discussions for both experienced practitioners and women new to FLOSS to make contact and skillshare.
We invite proposals for talks, workshops and Birds of a Feather sessions
Deadline for proposals, Monday 12 March 2012
The organising committee will send notifications regarding session proposals no later than 26 March 2012
Who is this event for?
Women users and developers of FLOSS in digital arts, free culture, open data, open knowledge, social change movements and non-profits
Researchers, students and writers
Women entrepreneurs and social innovators using FLOSS
