Texas Linux Fest 2020 will take place May 1st and 2nd at Palmer Events Center in Austin, Texas.

The deadline for proposals is January 18th, 2020 at 11:59pm CST.

Due to our confusing messaging around the CFP dates, we have extended the deadline one week. The new deadline is January 26th at 5PM CST.

Texas Linux Fest is an annual Linux and open source software event for Texas and the surrounding region. We are excited to bring you two days of general sessions and vendor sessions this year along with two full days of expo floor! Texas Linux Fest is for the business and home Linux user, and for the experienced developer and newcomer alike.
