What in the world is a Penguin Day?

Penguin Day Seattle will bring together non-profit technology staff and open source software (OSS) developers for a day of learning and conversation.
We’ll demystify open source for nonprofits, frankly address the challenges of developing open source tools for non profits, and celebrate strengths and successes of open source in the nonprofit sector. Leading open source innovators, including One Northwest (Seattle) and FreeGeek (Portland) will share their stories and knowledge.

If you are curious about open source software for your nonprofit
organization, Penguin Days are for you!
