Chemnitzer Linux-Tage 2019 - 16th and 17th March 2019

"Naturally intelligent." has been the motto of the 21st edition of our Chemnitzer Linux-Tage and took up the topic of the science year 2019. Around 3600 visitors accepted the invitation, and the event was also extended in terms of space, with offers on the forecourt and in the neighbouring Weinholdbau. Questions about the state of developments, opportunities and risks in the field of machine learning, autonomous driving and intelligent devices were the focus of numerous lectures. Children and adolescents with a thirst for knowledge found what they were looking for in the extensive CLT Junior Programme and, for example, had the opportunity to write small programme sequences, which later became visible on board of the ISS.

Chemnitzer Linux-Tage 2018 - 10th and 11th March 2018

For the first time there was a backdoor contest. New construction kits attracted children and young people to the soldering stations and the CLT Junior Program was not the only one to register fully booked workshops.

Chemnitzer Linux-Tage 2017 - 11th and 12th March 2017

Around 3200 visitors were counted in 2017. Following the our slogan „Break down barriers“ a whole slot dealt with this topic. Among others, the hearing-impaired scientist Irmhild Rogalla described her Odysee in search of a suitable conference solution. On Sunday, On Sunday, the awarding of the Thomas Krenn awards and the subsequent Lightning Talks were a big accusation.

CLT-Junior, the workshop offer for children and adolescents was quickly booked up again. The participants developed, programmed and tinkered with full enthusiasm.

Chemnitzer Linux-Tage 2016 - 19th and 20th March 2016

In 2016 the agenda of our annual conference in Chemnitz had as a motto "It Is Your Project". Those who took advantage of this motto were enabled to participate in the run for some special kind of subsidy: the Thomas-Krenn-Award. This was during the Chemnitz Linux Days for the first time. The award-winners received their cheques in front of a well-attended auditorium, before Klaus Knopper gave his talk about Knoppix on the Raspberry 2. Just as enthusiastic were the radio amateurs. They were really overwhelmed and inspired by the lively atmosphere and the spirit of libre software and hardware of those Linux Days. This experience motivated them to join the events, to contribute and present their future projects.

Although indoor camping had to be cancelled, once again even more than three thousand visitors attended the events, as before organized in the orange location. The visitors had the exciting choice to select their programmes from 88 lectures and talks, 9 workshops and 7 additional Juniors' workshops. The lounge was nearly crammed with 49 project booths, as well as the booths of 17 enterprises..

Chemnitzer Linux-Tage 2015 - 21st and 22nd March 2015

At this year's Chemnitzer Linux-Tage a new attendance record was registered. We did not expect an increase by 20% so that for the first time our admission ribbons, despite the big reserve, did not last. "Spielend einfach" proved to be an appealing motto and the small tux, made of the well known bricks, bravely lead through the talks, workshops, Linux-Live and much more. The workshops of the category CLT-Junior, especially organized for children and teenagers, were booked up quickly, as well as the places of the indoor camping at the gym.

Chemnitzer Linux-Tage 2014 - 15th and 16th March 2014

Once again, the Chemnitzer Linux-Tage have been a big success story. A lot of exciting lectures invited people for listening, and also the workshops and the presentation area denoted a huge number of visitors. Under the heading „Trust is …?“ the highly explosive issues data security and privacy were picked out as a central theme. This attracted more than 2600 guests. We say: Thank you! For sure, also the extended offer for children had a share on the number of visitors. An assisted cildren's weekend organised by the Froglabs inspired with programming robots and developing own games.

Chemnitzer Linux-Tage 2013 - 16th and 17th March 2013

The 15th edition of the Chemnitzer Linux Days offered the well known mix of proven and new. Like in the years before, there were many well attended lectures and workshops. The Live area showed lots of interesting projects. One of the highlights was the Raspberry Pi hands on workshop. Special attention got a 3d printer, conducting its work. A new part of the event was a hardware workshop specifically prepared for children aged 8 to 14, trying to inspire them for our mission.

Chemnitzer Linux-Tage 2009 - 14th and 15th March 2009

Since a long time again on a second march weekend. Our guests didn't get confused by this fact and came countless to the event. For the first time some lectures were broadcasted as a live video stream. The Opener-Party on Friday, appealed to a lot of attendees.

For the first time the Linux-Night took place and presented the preview of "The last drug" (VEB Film Leipzig, movie completely under Creative-Commons-Licence) on Saturday evening. The survey of our visitors endorsed that our dedication was worthwile.

Chemnitzer Linux-Tage 2006 - 4th and 5th March 2006

In 2006, the Chemnitzer Linux-Tage 2006 attracted again about 2500 visitors to come to the new lecture building, this time under the auspices of the minister of state for economy and labour of Saxony, Thomas Jurk. Just as well as in the previous year, the weather conditions made it difficult to get to Chemnitz. Nevertheless the Chemnitzer Linux-Tage came up with a substantial range of lectures and workshops as well as 56 open source projects and companies. Furthermore the opportunity to listen to the live stream has been used actively.

Chemnitzer Linux-Tage 2005 - 5th and 6th March 2005

The weather conditions posed a challenge in 2005. Fresh-fallen snow and winterly temperatures certainly kept the one or another at home. This assumption was supported by the 600 different IP numbers from which the live streams of the lectures have been recalled. Nevertheless about 2500 participants have been visiting the "Orangerie".

The current wave of flu catched our lecturers and Linux-Live contributors unprepared. Thanks to the variegated presentations it hardly catched the visitor's eye.

The trend in the past years, to have a throughout wider distribution of our guests over the total federal territory, continued unabatedly.

6th Chemnitzer Linux-Tag - 6th and 7th March 2004

A set of workshops was already fully booked in advance. The Linux bus of Sven Guckes arrived from Berlin and brought along a clunch of friends. The mark of 2000 visitors was passed at the beginning of the event.

The ambience of Chemnitz was also used by two further events: The members of the German student network for residential accommodation as well as the KDE-PIM developers held several meetings in the "Orangerie".

5th Chemnitzer Linux-Tag - 1st and 2nd March 2003

The number of visitors increased again although other events complained about diminution. Maybe the "Indoor-Camping" was helpful: For the first time we leased some gyms for a simple but reasonably priced accommodation. The PGP-party was a novelty which will be an inherent part as a result of the high level of response. An area-wide wireless LAN for all visitors was also new which increased the number of spontaneous sessions rapidly in all corners of the house.

4th Chemnitzer Linux-Tag - 9th and 10th March 2002

The fourth Chemnitzer Linux-Tag as always took place at the beginning of March in 2002. We counted about 1500 guests, 51 well attended lectures with added 4800 listeners, over 50 treated computers in our Praxis Dr. Tux and 108 workshop visitors.

The raisins under the lectures were Michael Bramer: "Debian, the project/the distribution", Werner Heuser: "Linux on PDAs", Klaus Knopper: "GNU/Linux without installation", Felix von Leitner: "How to write small and fast software" and Dr. Hartmut Reuter: "OpenAFS: a consolidated shared file system for Linux, Unix and Windows and Mac".

Workshops were new on our programme. A limited number of participants was able to deal intensely with selected subjects in 2 to 3 hour sessions.

For the first time BoFs ("Birds of a feather flock together") were brought into being which gave our guests the opportunity to get together and exchange their thoughts with some experts on a subject.

The install party became the Praxis Dr. Tux (surgery Dr. Tux) with operating theatre, surgeons and nurses who helped to restore the Linux life of the sick computer. In addition to new installations the Praxis Dr. Tux is also thought for those who have other little aches and paines with their Linux.

The Robo-Sumo challenge caused a sensation. Robots have been knocked together in a challenge with LEGO kits and were subsequently tested for their velocity and intelligence. Alongside with the computer free children's play area, where the smallest were looked after, one received feast for their stomach (meals) and eye (art).

And last but not least: All plush penguins have found a new home.

3rd Chemnitzer Linux-Tag - 10th and 11th March 2001

In 2001, about 1200 guests visited the third Linux-Tag and its 40 lectures, 8 presentation stands and the install party.

Highlights among the lectures were well-known Linux presenters like Sven Guckes with "Computer without mouse - working with the terminal" and Kurt Pfeifle with "CUPS - the Common UNIX Printing System".

In contrast to the past years, the concept of presentations has been reworked. The presentations became demonstrations with one topic which invited for discussions and enquiries.

2nd Chemnitzer Linux-Tag - 11th and 12th March 2000

"Veni Vidi Vici" was our slogan for the second Linux-Tag. In 2000, we had two days of action instead of one. The amount of lectures has been increased from 24 to nearly 40 and the lecture programme has been expanded to current or special subjects. Exemplary were lectures of Lutz Donnerhacke: "The eternal log file and bank free money" and Reiner Klaproth: "The c't communication server". Not forgetting: the lectures and well-tried install party which met with the visitor's approval.

1st Chemnitzer Linux-Tag - 6th March 1999

In March 1999, the Chemnitzer Linux-Tag started as an event on one day with a lecture programme, lectures and an install party. At that time we had about 700 visitors and 60 computers for the install party - for this reason it was one of the biggest Linux events in the German-speaking area straightaway.
