Fellowshiptreffen in Duesseldorf

24 September 2014

Das nächste reguläre Fellowshiptreffen in Düsseldorf findet im Chaosdorf, Hüttenstr. 25, 40215 Düsseldorf statt, offizieller Beginn um 20:00 Uhr. "Omnis enim res, quae dando non deficit, dum habetur et non datur, nondum habetur, quomodo habenda est." (deutsch: "Denn jede Sache, die durch Mitteilung an andere nicht verliert, besitzt man nicht, wie man soll, solange man sie nur selber besitzt, ohne sie wieder an andere weiterzugeben.") ist ein Motto der FSFE aus ihrer frühen Zeit. Diese Erkenntnis ist jedoch etwa 1600 Jahre alt. Ralf Peter Reimann, Diplom-Informatiker und Pastor, wird uns in seinem Vortrag Sinn und Inhalt dieses Satzes erläutern und auch seinen Urheber vorstellen. Gäste sind wie immer herzlich willkommen.

About FSFE's Community

The community behind the Free Software Foundation Europe is diverse and spread throughout the continent. We see ourselves as Europeans with a different cultural background but with the common vision of an infrastructure built on Free Software - as a precondition of a Free Society. This is what makes us strong. We believe in cooperation from a regional to a global level, from community to an organisational level, from freedom to liberty. Interested? You are welcome to join our community!

Read about the different ways, how to become part of our movement:

  • Wherever you live, wherever you go: help to spread our word by ordering our promotion material and give it to everybody who is interested. Or put it in a place where people can grab it themselves. Viral marketing and spreading the word are important factors to let our movement grow.
  • You can become a supporter of the FSFE to show that you care about the political and societal aspects of Free Software. After signing, you will be kept up to date with our Newsletter and, additionally, you will receive special information about our activities. Of course, you are free to join our discussions and activities.
  • If you have interest to support our mission with your skills and expertise, then we are more than happy if you contribute to our work. There are various ways to help us voluntarily - not just by hacking. For example, translations are really important for our cross-border communication and outreaching activities. And you do not need to be an interpreter for the translations - if you are a mother tongue speaker and you have a feeling for proper language, this is a good start.
  • Finally, you can become a Fellow - someone who is a sustainable member of the FSFE. As a Fellow you get access to our infrastructure for you own purpose and to use it for the communication with other Fellows. You can also join or set up local teams and find help to do so by the staff of FSFE. You can even present yourself as a candidate for a Fellowship representative and become part of the General Assembly of the FSFE. Being a Fellow involves membership fees. These membership fees are financial contributions, that directly support our work and make sure that we remain independent of any particular donor. When you join the Fellowship, you can decide for yourself about the amount of your donation.
