Join the Ubuntu community at UbuCon Europe in Essen, Germany



on 3 November 2016

This year was the year of the first UbuCon Summit which took place in Pasadena in January. The next big Ubuntu event is just around the corner: the very first UbuCon Europe in Essen, Germany on the 19th and 20th November.

The first international UbuCon in Europe

UbuCon Europe is the first conference dedicated to the European Ubuntu community. Join us in two weeks for two days full of talks, workshops, demos and (hopefully) great food. Social events in the evenings will give you the opportunity to meet fellow community members and visit some of Essen’s most beautiful sights!

The UbuCon Europe takes place in Essen, Germany and will be the 10th UbuCon in Germany and the German Ubuntu Community celebrates this as an international event in the heart of the Ruhr region.

Two days of talks and workshops

The event takes place on two days. Both days have talks and workshops about Ubuntu, Linux, and Open Source. We’re happy that Canonical CEO Jane Silber will do the opening keynote! After that we’ll have talks about Internet of Things with Ubuntu, an Ubuntu Touch Porting Workshop, Bash on Ubuntu on Windows, how to create your first snap and many more talks! See the full schedule for more details about talks and speakers. We’ll have talks from long time Ubuntu Community Members like Elizabeth K. Joseph, Laura Czajkowski and Nathan Haines and many more.


Ubuntu is not only an Operating System but also a great Community. On Friday and Saturday evening we’ve have two social events planned where you have the opportunity to meet fellow community members! The details of the social event and our UbuCon itself can be found on our event page:
