Women In Tech August 2019
This month we are really excited to welcome our very own Anna Dodson to speak at Women in Tech!
Everyone is welcome and there are no tickets required. Just turn up - it's entirely free!
Free as in Freedom, not as in Pizza.
Free and Open Source Software - what is it and why should we care?
by Anna Dodson
We use different software every day in our personal and work lives, from laptops, phones and search engines to light bulbs. So what if you wanted to have a look at how it works or make a copy for a friend, extend the functionality or stop it sharing your data? Should you be allowed to?
In this talk, I'll be explaining what Free and Open Source software is and what the differences are to help answer these questions.
Anna is a Software Developer at Imosphere, fuelled by tea and the moral high ground, working on a healthcare data application.
A Wonder Woman fan, cat lover and one of the Women in Tech organisers, she's passionate about inclusively and genuinely does want world peace.
