The FSFE Summit and QtCon 2016 are getting under way at bcc, Berlin. The event comprises a range of communities, including KDE and VideoLAN and there are also a wide range of people present who are active in other projects, including Debian, Mozilla, GSoC and many more.
Today, some time between 17:30 and 18:30 I'll be giving a lightning talk about Postbooks, a Qt and PostgreSQL based free software solution for accounting and ERP. For more details about how free, open source software can make your life easier by helping keep track of your money, see my comparison of free, open source accounting software.
Saturday, at 15:00 I'll give a talk about Free Communications with Free Software. We'll look at some exciting new developments in this area and once again, contemplate the question can we hope to use completely free and private software to communicate with our friends and families this Christmas? (apologies to those who don't celebrate Christmas, the security of your communications is just as important too).
There is an entry fee for the QtCon event, however, people attending the FSFE Summit are invited to attend by making a donation. Contact FSFE for more details and consider joining the FSFE Fellowship.
