Free Software Culture Talk at Manchester Bracamp

Last month I attended the Manchester Girl Geeks Barcamp – affectionately known as bracamp. I did a talk on Free Software Culture, covering the varying definitions of “free” (libre/gratis), the principles of free and open source, why people do it, how development is managed and demonstrated use cases, as well as battle some gripes from a misunderstood audience member – which really helped me get my point across better.

I started the talk quite poorly but got more steady as it got going. It’s not filmed from the best angle (limited options) and there’s some background noise at times but it’s generally ok.

Thanks to Les and Olly for filming & publishing online
