Free Libre Open Source Software Kosova

FLOSS Kosovo is a non-governmental non-profit organization established in order to support, promote and develop:

To achieve its goals, the association will undertake, without limitation, the following activities:

  • The Annual Conference available to the general public with the lowest prize possible to help the aspirations set out above.
  • Enable access to free and open source software and relevant knowledge by facilitating the distribution and localization in the local languages of Kosovo.
  • Cooperate with local and international partners and sponsors of the industry, academia and government to drive forward the aims of the association.

FLOSSK began in March 2009 at the initiative of James Michael DuPont as a result of the desire to organize a conference on Free and Open Source Software. After six months of hard wok and with the help of many supporters FLOSSK organized the first conference on Free and Open Source Software in Kosovo in August 2009.

Apart from the Conference, FLOSSK continued working in various activities such as organizing Software Freedom Days, holding free public lectures on Free and Open Source Software, and developing, translating, and collaborating with the media to promote Free and Open Source Software throughout Kosovo. FLOSSK members and the general public learned about the ideology behind Free and Open Source Software, GNU/Linux operating system, FLOSS programs for solving everyday problems, map creation using OpenStreetMap, and met well known Free Software movement figures from around the world.

Come and join us, lets work together to develop and promote free and open source software in Kosovo!
