The seventh year of the LinuxDays conference will be held on October 6 and 7 at the Faculty of Information Technology, CTU. The conference program traditionally offers expert lectures, practical workshops, and interesting project boots. Several foreign experts have been invited to this event. FIT lecturers Lukáš Bařinka, Jan Buriánek, and Ondřej Guth will also speak. Participation is free of charge, but you need to register.


The conference traditionally focuses on open-source technologies, so there can not lack Linux technologies, administration of servers, containers, and other topical issues. This year, the organizers ensure another auditorium, so there will be five auditoriums at all. Everything will be recorded and streamed in high-quality thanks to the Silicon Hill Audio-Visual Center.


As usual, the main content of the conference will be expert lectures. There are about seventy lectures prepared. This year, there are more technical workshops in the program, but the beginners will also have a field day. An important part of every LinuxDays year is boots with with the representatives of the Czech and foreign projects.

This year, several foreign lecturers, who are experts in their branch, will perform. Vojtěch Pavlík, a Linux kernel developer, and Norwegian security expert Per Thorsheim also accept the invitation.

You can chat with community members or developers of popular apps at community boots. There will be also an opportunity to pass the exam and get an internationally recognized LPI certification.

The program of the conference includes FIT lectures:
