Chemnitz Linux Days 2020: Linux and open source to try

The organizers of the Chemnitz Linux Days have published the program for this year's event. This takes place on March 14th and 15th, 2020 at the TU Chemnitz and has the motto "Just do it!".

The motto is meant ambiguously. On the one hand, it includes the request to simply get started with Linux, which is why the end of support for Windows 7 offers a good reason. The organizers believe that it is no longer necessary to have any special knowledge to use Linux. In this sense, they also want to encourage initiators of young projects in the Linux world to dare to do things and "make things easy". On the other hand, strategies should also be used to make complex software as simple as possible in terms of its usability.

The Chemnitz Linux Days have been taking place since 1999 and are now the largest Linux meeting in Germany.

In addition to the usability already mentioned, various technical topics are dealt with in the over 90 planned lectures. The lectures are divided into tracks such as Internet of Things, security, containers, but also society and community. Different levels of knowledge are covered, from a simple introduction to Linux for beginners and those switching from one to lectures dealing with the internals of the Linux kernel. Workshops on topics such as YubiKey, Python or cloud computing with OpenStack offer a practical introduction.

With "CLT-Junior" there is a program for children and young people from the age of 10 that is aimed at young visitors. In supervised workshops, they can, among other things, screw on robots, program games or use marbles to playfully discover what is going on inside a computer.

Those interested can check out the freshly published Program on the event website provide a complete overview.
