Linux 2014 Event - XII National Meeting on Open Technology - the largest Portuguese Open Source event is organized by Syone for the 12th year in a row, in partnership with Caixa Mágica. The main theme of the event is "Understanding the Present, Predicting the Future" and its goal is to continue to share the most emblematic national and international cases of Linux and Open Source applications.

This year the event will take place again in the
Polo Tecnológico de Lisboa - LISPOLIS in Telheiras, Lisbon, on September 25th, 2014 (see venue).

The participation in the event is free, but registration is mandatory and you can do it here.




Over the year's this national open source software event (OSS) has attracted and generated overwhelming interest from the Portuguese IT community. It is an event that promotes and encourages open debates of new opportunities, technologies and concepts through the presentation of these same technologies, success stories and market trends and readiness. It is an event that openly debates open source's biggest questions and myths whilst always maintaining a commercial and business perspective.
