Workshop – FreedomBox

Saturday November 6, 2021 – 13:00 to 17:00

This workshop will guide you on the installation and setup of a personal FreedomBox Internet server that is suitable for supporting one person or a community of people.

In addition to helping campuseros in setting up the basic FreedomBox software, as time allows we will be helping to install some of the useful functionality inside of FreedomBox and additional functionality that can not really be distributed preconfigured with the distribution.

FreedomBox can be set up on a variety of hardware and operating system scenarios but a lot of people buy a single board computer such as the official FreedomBox Pioneer from Olimex, a company in Bulgaria that specializes in Open Hardware and is an official partner of FreedomBox, a 501(c)3 non-profit. The FreedomBox Pioneer comes in different plug types, but the one recommended for Campus Party Canada is the FreedomBox Pioneer with the two flat prong plug. As an option you can add a drive bay with a 2.5” SATA HDD or SSD up to two TB in size, or just buy the “Drive Bay” and add your own 2.5” SATA device.

Olimex is very fast in handling orders and shipping. Items ordered from them have been received in a week or less in the USA. YMMV.

I will be adding more information about the workshop and the FreedomBox in my Blog at Linux Pro Magazine as we get closer to Campus Party Canada.
