LinuxDays is an annual Czech open-source conference that takes place in Prague. It will be held in 2012 for the first time to replace the LinuxExpo conference, which had a long tradition, but unfortunately was cancelled this year.
When the open-source community learned about the cancellation of LinuxExpo, it organized itself and as everybody wanted to have something like LinuxExpo (but even better and cooler), we came up with a conference of our own. Who are we? Who is the community behind the LinuxDays conference? We started as a group of people who know each other from conferences and thanks to that we have people from various communities. We have people who are behind another big conference – Installfest. Thanks to them, we have huge support of FIT ČVUT. When it comes to media, we have editors-in-chief of LinuxEXPRES and ROOT. From distributions we have Fedora, Gentoo, openSUSE and Ubuntu. So, it is really a community event, and many various communities participate. Organized by the open-source community for the open-source community.
This year will take a place from 20 to 21 October in Prague at ČVUT. For more detailed information about the location, please visit the venue page, where you can find public transport directions to get to the event. This year the LinuxDays conference will be co-hosted with the openSUSE Conference, the SUSE Labs conference and the Gentoo miniconf, so it will be even greater and you can expect many interesting talks both in Czech and English. We even have a common landing page and a common poster:
