Tools for freedom

One of the greatest things about the Software Freedom Day is that you have the possibility to get involved and contribute in so many ways. And some of the contributions that you made to the SFD goes far beyond the event, becoming a substancial contribution that benefits the whole FOSS community.

One of these contributions is the SFD Registering System.


The SFD Registering System (SFD-REG) was developed in September 2007 for that years SFD Nicaragua event by Aldo Villagra, using RoR.

In 2008, Adolfo Fitoria, software developer and member of the Ubuntu-ni Community Council, adopted the project and improved the system for the SFD Nicaragua 2008 event.

The major improvements are; a nicer user interface (with assistance from our art guru, Byron Corrales), personalized on-line registrations, live statistics, separate modules for conferences and workshops, and much more.

The system has been released under the GNU General Public License version 3 (GPLv3). You can grab the source code here. Launchpad is being used for bug tracking. You can read more in Fitoria’s blog post:
