SFD Countdown Ready!

Celebrate SFD with us on September 17, 2016!The Software Freedom Day countdown is ready for usage in English. We are therefore informing translators and also people willing to add a new language that translation can start right now. All the instructions are available on the wiki at this page.

For those who already want to add the countdown on their page/blog/website the code is the same as last year and has the same support for time zones. So if for example you’re living in Paris (GMT+2/UTC+2 that would be) then the code to add is:

<a href="http://www.softwarefreedomday.org/"><img src="http://www.softwarefreedomday.org/countdown/banner1-UTC-4-en.png" alt="Celebrate SFD with us on September 17, 2016!" width="160" height="90" border="0" /></a>

The new svg file in English is here.

Should you want to run the script from your website and customize it to your liking you can find the source code here and you’ll need to add a cron job to run it every 15 minutes if you want to support all time zones. Else every day at 1am is probably fine. Full support available from our mailing list!

If you are preparing for your Software Freedom Day events, please create your team page here and registration will be opened shortly, stayed tuned!

Happy Software Freedom Day Preparation!
