NeuroFedora: Free software for Free neuroscience

NeuroFedora Logo

Welcome to the NeuroFedora documentation. NeuroFedora is a Fedora community special interest group (SIG) that aims to make it easy for you to use Fedora Linux based Free/Open source software platforms for neuroscience.

We believe that similar to Free software, science should be free for all to use, share, modify, and study. The use of Free software also aids reproducibility, data sharing, and collaboration in the research community. By making the tools used in the scientific process easier to use, NeuroFedora aims to take a step to enable this ideal.

The NeuroFedora community makes more than 200 FOSS software tools easily installable on the Fedora Linux operating system and its derivative platforms. We also provide a ready to use Fedora Linux based operating system that comes pre-installed with many tools for computational neuroscience. Please use the links in the sidebar to learn more about NeuroFedora and the artefacts we produce.

NeuroFedora in its current form was started on September 30, 2018.

We are always looking for more volunteers to help us do more. The various contributor roles that we currently have set up can be found in the contributor documentation. You can even create a new role for yourself! Our volunteers generally work a few hours a week on NeuroFedora.

Free Software

You can learn more about the Free Software movement on their website. You can learn more about the use of Open source for Neuroscience here. Other relevant neuroscience links are collected on a separate page.
