InstallFest is a conference focused on the open-source Linux operating system and related topics, which takes place annually in Prague. The main idea of this weekend event is to bring together Linux enthusiasts and help beginners with an orientation in this operating system.

The eleventh year of the InstallFest conference takes place on March 2–3 at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, CTU, at Karlovo náměstí. The Linux community meeting offers a rich program with lectures and workshops not only on topics of computer security and the Internet. Among the lecturers, there are traditionally employees and students of our faculty, e.g. Lukáš Bařinka, Tomáš Čejka, Martin Bílý, and Karel Jílek. In addition to the open technologies, the conference also offers open food—OpenCola. The event is free of charge, but registration is required.

Previous Years

The first InstallFest was organised in 1999 by students from the Silicon Hill Club of the CTU Student Union. The first events used to be the installation festivals, where the participants installed the Linux operating system under the supervision of experts. With the growing popularity of the event, lectures and topics were extended. Since 2009, the event is a classical conference.

Our faculty has been involved in organising the festival since 2011. Since then, the festival has been held annually, and its program is expanding every year. You can find videos, presentations, and programs on the pages from previous years.
