What is this session?

We invite you to an introduction to FreedomBox, a 100% free software self-hosting web server to deploy social applications on small machines. It provides online communication tools respecting your privacy and data ownership. If you bring your own single board computer (think Raspberry Pi) you can join the installfest and go home with your own FreedomBox. Otherwise install it on a virtual machine, or just join in to help others and share the experience.

What is FreedomBox?

FreedomBox is a 100% free software self-hosting web server to deploy social applications on small machines. It provides online communication tools respecting your privacy and data ownership. You can use FreedomBox at home to replace services provided by third-parties mining your life and using your content. Thanks to a very friendly interface, you will be able to deploy on demand applications focusing on confidentiality such as file sharing, shared calendaring, instant messaging, secure voice conference calling, blog and wiki. FreedomBox is a free software stack, a subset of the Debian universal operating system, that can be installed in many flavors of inexpensive and power-efficient Open Source hardware, called single board computers. Once installed on the hardware of your choice, the simplicity of setting up and operating a FreedomBox is similar to that of a smart phone.
