Interested visitors, whether beginners, professionals or even Linux specialists, can look forward to a diverse two-day programme featuring lectures, workshops and information stands. The topics range from "Smart-TV remotely controlled via HTTP", "Digital freedom at school" or "Secure and easy backups" to "Website analysis with Matomo", to answering questions like "How can I process my scanned images with Inkscape?" or "How do I solder a digital clock? In an introductory session to the "Blender" programme, participants learn how to create 3D models and animations. The numerous information stands on Saturday provide free maps from OpenStreetMap, or information about free games and much more.

Children's programme included

Teenagers can attend exciting workshops at the FrogLabs, where they learn to programme their own computer games with Python (registration requested). And even the youngest Open Source fans, children from one to ten years old, can explore, play and romp around in the childcare facility on the Saturday.
