You like coding and tinkering with software or hardware? And you are up for a challenge? Then the “Youth Hacking 4 Freedom” is the perfect competition to test your skills. The Free Software Foundation


With the “Youth Hacking 4 Freedom” contest the FSFE has created a fun hacking competition for young people from Europe. The participants have the chance to work on their own project idea with the guidance of experts from the Free Software universe. There are no limitations for the projects as long as they are published under a Free Software license. In this competition young people can test their skills, learn how to work on a project under a deadline, and most importantly have fun while meeting different people from Europe. Hear all about the competition and how to participate in this talk.
