I love Free Software Dag

Wij onderschatten vaak de kracht van een eenvoudige Dank u. Bijdragers aan Vrije Software doen belangrijk werk voor onze samenleving en zij verdienen aandacht. De "I love Free Software Dag" op 14 februari (ook bekend als Valentijnsdag) is voor u de perfecte gelegenheid om uw speciale dankbaarheid te uiten.

In de Vrije Softwaregemeenschap verwachten wij veel werk van Vrije Software-projectbeheerders. Wij willen dat onze foutmeldingen snel behandeld worden en eisen nieuwe functies van mensen die vaak hun schaarse vrijwilligerstijd besteden aan Vrije Software-code, -vertalingen, -tests, of -ontwerp. Daar is niets mis mee, want constructieve feedback helpt ons om verder te verbeteren en houdt Vrije Software-projecten levendig. Maar het is ook belangrijk om enige waardering te tonen voor hen die het hele jaar door zo onbaatzuchtig voor ons werken! U kunt uw liefde voor Vrije Software tonen door uw favoriete Vrije Software-project of -bijdrager te bedanken.

De jaarlijkse "I love Free Software Dag" maakt het mogelijk om van 14 februari een dag te maken vol positieve, creatieve en mooie boodschappen voor de hele gemeenschap. Samen kunnen wij de softwarevrijheid die ons versterkt vieren.

Veel mensen zijn om verschillende redenen verliefd op Vrije Software.

I ♥ Free Software Day 2023: Meet and Connect

For the past years we hardly had the chance to meet each other in person. Now we are bringing back in person meetings for the "I Love Free Software Day". Let's celebrate our love for Free Software - you are invited!

The "I Love Free Software Day" has been a tradition that lasts years. On this day we thank all the people behind Free Software projects or programs and let them know that their work does not go unnoticed. Let's celebrate together all the wonderful people working for Free Software. Therefore you are invited to join "I Love Free Software Day" celebrations all across Europe. Connect with your local FSFE group and organise a fun meetup.

We are grateful to those who work and contribute to the Free Software universe: developers, designers, translators, advocates, donors, users, and more. There are a lot of different Free Software communities out there, with different values or different focuses in their work. But we all share our love for Free Software and value the freedom to use, study, share and improve software. Let's meet and connect! Let's show our appreciation with a simple "Thank you!"
