LibrePlanet is the annual conference held by the Free Software Foundation in Boston, MA, USA. This year, it’s being held at MIT university on March 23th and 24th. More details about it are here: https://libreplanet.org/2019/

The FSF isn’t officially hosting a Libreboot workshop at LibrePlanet this year. At the 2015 and 2016 LibrePlanet conference, there were workshops there run by myself and Patrick McDermott, a former member of the Libreboot project.

This year, like last year, the intention is to provide Libreboot flashing for conference goers on an unofficial basis. If you have SPI flashing hardware and would like to help out, then email Leah Rowe on leah@libreboot.org and your name will be added here. If you can provide a photo to be shared on this page, that will further assist attendees in finding you at the conference.

If you, the reader, are attending LibrePlanet this year, and you would like to get a Libreboot system flashed for you, then take it with you to LibrePlanet. There will be knowledgeable people there who can flash Libreboot for you.

I, Leah Rowe, would be grateful to anyone who can answer my call. I’m looking for people who can provide a Libreboot installation service at the FSF conference during the weekend.

I would be grateful if anyone else would also be willing to provide flashing. I myself am not attending the conference physically, unfortunately.

Basically, all you need for flashing someone’s laptop at the conference is:
