In January 2016 and January 2017 the School of EEECS at QUB hosted events to showcase and raise awareness of Linux and Free/Open-Source Software (FOSS) use in Belfast. Aimed at students, IT professionals and hobbyists the talks showed how FOSS software is used locally in charities, in research and in global businesses. The event raised awareness about demand from employers for skills and careers in free software such as Gnu/Linux.
Talks in 2016 & 2017 included Certification & Careers, High Performance Computing, Puppet, Docker, Open-Data, FOSS in Geosciences, Rust, Security and OpenStack.
