Sugar Labs is a community of developers, teachers, and students, all working together on educational free software projects. Everyone learns by doing, contributing, critiquing, and reflecting on their work -- anything from short code created in a visual programming language to a major contribution to a critical project. The Sugar Labs' community has been around and active for more than a decade, it operated as a member organization under the umbrella of Software Freedom Conservancy, and now we are entering an exciting new chapter as its own non-profit. In this talk, we will discuss a little bit of the history of Sugar Labs, what has made it special over the years, and what we expect for the future. We will demonstrate some of our leading learning tools, such as Turtle Blocks, Music Blocks, and the Sugar OS. Lastly, we are open to ideas and questions about our future.
