Title: Public Money? Public Code!

Abstract: Code paid by the people should be available to the people! We want legislation requiring that publicly financed software developed for the public sector be made publicly available under a Free Software licence. If it is public money, it should be public code as well. More than 30.000 people and 200 organisations adopt this position. Public administrations that use Free Software do not have to reinvent the wheel in programming similar applications, so they can share costs and save taxpayers’ money. The use of Free Software serves the public and promotes innovation too, as users can utilise the code found in the public digital infrastructure. The FSFE explains the benefits of Free Software and shares best practices in the dedicated ‘Public Money? Public Code!’ brochure for public administrations. Volunteers translated the brochure into several languages.

Transparent hardware, GNU/Linux, Free Software, open formats, open teaching, free access to knowledge and checking that administrations correctly apply articles 68 and 69 of the Italian Code for the Digital Administration are my daily bread.

Title: FUSS esce dalle scuole, entra nelle case e si apre al mondo

Abstract: il sistema operativo Debian GNU/Linux, creato e mantenuto da una grande comunità di sviluppatori a partire dagli anni ’90 ed usato in tutto il mondo, è stato adottato 17 anni fa anche dalle scuole della Provincia di Bolzano. Offre ogni giorno a circa 16.000 studenti e 2.000 docenti un vasto numero di applicativi liberi per la didattica nelle scuole di ogni ordine e grado. Grazie ad attività di coinvolgimento di famiglie e docenti – i cosiddetti installation party organizzati negli anni 2000 in parallelo da Gruppo FUSS e LUGBZ e ad attività successive quali lo Sportello Open & Linux e l’Iniziativa SchoolSwap, il Progetto FUSS si è aperto all’esterno della scuola raggiungendo ad oggi centinaia di famiglie, permettendo non solo di abbattere il divario digitale esistente, ma di far comprendere a studenti, docenti e cittadini interessati l’importante concetto della sovranità digitale che poggia su due fondamentali pilastri: il Software Libero ed i formati aperti.
