Announcing the "FreedomBox Turns 10 Hackathon"

October 18th, 2019

In February 2020, the "Freedom in the Cloud" speech that founded the FreedomBox project will turn 10 years old, which means that our project will also turn 10 years old. This is a huge milestone for FreedomBox. To commemorate the 10 year milestone, the FreedomBox Foundation invites our community to New York City for the "FreedomBox Turns 10 Hackathon" in November!

Please join us to learn about FreedomBox, hack a little, and celebrate our project's 10 year milestone!
