Since we haven't been able to have our in-person meetups anymore, LibreMiami has been looking for ways to stay connected during the current crisis. Here are our top picks so far.
Advocating libre and open source software for Miami (and beyond)
We believe you should be free to use your software as you wish, adapt it to your needs (maybe with some help), and disseminate it through your community. We promote libre software like LibreOffice, Firefox and GNU/Linux which respects your freedom over proprietary software like Microsoft Office, Edge, and Windows which restricts users.
LibreMiami is here to build a libre software utopia, by sharing knowledge with users and developers, advocating for user freedom, and advancing the state of libre software.
Okay, but what do you do specifically?
We help people meet their software and hardware needs. We help people learn to code. We help people contribute to open source. We fearlessly tackle the big issues. We work on what we really care about. We hang out in pink rooms, drink boba tea and laugh at our commit messages.
Get involved in 3 easy steps:
- Make a matrix account through Riot.im. Then join the chat to stay in touch.
- If you want to code, make sure you have a GitLab account. We stay (dis)organized in our GitLab group
- Come to a meetup near you. You won’t regret it!
