Jeporu was created in 2010, after the end of the I Encontro Livre - Disseminando Cultura e Conhecimento, event on digital culture held in Recife. We needed to create a website for the event, and decided to do it ourselves. That was when we began studying web design.
In our projects, we always use free (as in freedom) and open source technologies. Our goal is to provide freedom and autonomy to our customers. All technology we produce has a free license.
The text Freedom or Power? published by the GNU Project, is a good place to start if you want to know better about freedom in the context of software.
The love of liberty is the love of others; the love of power is the love of ourselves.
— William Hazlitt
