LinuxDays is a Czech Linux conference that takes place every year in Prague. The weekend event, which is designed for Linux and open-source enthusiasts, offers lectures for both beginners and professionals. This conference was set up in 2012 to replace the canceled LinuxExpo conference. After several years, LinuxDays became the largest event of its kind in the Czech Republic.

Current Year

The first weekend in October, Oct. 5–6, the eighth year of LinuxDays is held at FIT. The conference program will again offer lectures, practical workshops, and booths of interesting projects. Many Czech and foreign experts accepted the invitation to the event. Speakers will include the Linux kernel developer Vojtěch Pavlík or security experts Per Thorsheim and Michal Špaček. Two workshops will also be led by FIT employees Lukáš Bařinka and Tomáš Čejka. Participation is free of charge, but registration is required.
