The SFD Countdown

Raise awareness about SFD by displaying our countdown

Adding the SFD countdown timer to your website is easy! We currently support 13 languages and all the world time zones. So imagine you want to use the Catalan counter while being located somewhere in Spain on UTC+1, and expect to have something like this:

Cel·lebra amb nosaltres el Dia de la Llibertat del Programari els dies 19 de setembre

The code to use will look like this:
<a href="http://www.softwarefreedomday.org/"><img src="http://www.softwarefreedomday.org/countdown/banner1-UTC+1-ca.png" border="0" width="160" height="90" alt="Cel·lebra amb nosaltres el Dia de la Llibertat del Programari els dies 19 de setembre"></a>
Now imagine you would like to use that same counter in English and on GMT+8:45. The new countdown timer will display like this:

Celebrate SFD with us on September 19!

and the updated code will be:
<a href="http://www.softwarefreedomday.org/"><img src="http://www.softwarefreedomday.org/countdown/banner1-UTC+8.45-en.png" border="0" width="160" height="90" alt="Celebrate SFD with us on September 19!"></a>
We hope those two examples will make it sufficiently clear, if not do not hesitate to contact us and ask questions. You can find more information on our wiki page here: http://wiki.softwarefreedomday.org/CountDown/.
