The state of free software in farming, food & agriculture.
: Saturday 15:25 – 16:10 EDT (19:25 UTC)
: Jupiter — in-person
: Free Software in practice
Free software is used in almost all mission critical agricultural equipment: GPS guidance, vehicle ECUs, touch screen displays. In this talk, I will demonstrate how much free software is used to maintain the food supply chain, as we know it and the importance of keeping free software in these processes. Secondly, the importance of upholding the four essential freedoms that are already in use by major agriculture companies, hardware makers, inventors most importantly, the users, farmers.
