Kansas Linux Fest (KLF) is an annual event dedicated to free and open source software as well as open knowledge and education. This year marks the third annual event and will be held in Wichita, Kansas May 12-14th, 2017 at Wichita State University.

KLF 2017 is open and welcome to people of all experiences; you do not have to be a “Linux expert” to attend and benefit from attending.

KLF 2017 will be structured primarily as a variety of topic-driven sessions led by volunteer presenters. Past year’s topics have included (but were not limited to): deep dives into specific elements of the Linux operating system (BASH shell scripts, exploring/proc, etc.), exploration of free/open source software packages (CFEngine, MySQL, Blender,etc.), and various hardware focuses (Robot Operating System, Embedded Linux Development, cell phone hacking, etc.). Simply put, if it’s Free or Open Source Hardware/Software/Ideas, you may see it at KLF!

KLF is organized by a small, but dedicated group of volunteers and is a program of MakeICT Institute.  MakeICT is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization which operates the community makerspace in Wichita, KS, as well as devICT and OpenWichita.
