The LinuxTag association strives to bring the Open Source Ecosystem together. For achieving this, we invite open source projects to present their work for free in the tradefair, and help as many speakers of the free conference program as possible with travel costs. To build this financial opportunity, we work with partners, sponsors, exhibitors and visitors.

This year, all partner events take place at the same ground as LinuxTag. Therefore, most of the LinuxTag tickets are combi tickets.

If you know us, you know that we use to have a community program. Write us, how you are taking part in the community, how you are using open source software and why you'd like to visit the LinuxTag! If you tell us your story, we'll happily provide you with a no charge community ticket.
