The 2019 Linux Plumbers conference will take place 9 through 11 September, 2019 in Lisboa, Portugal at the Corinthia Hotel Lisbon. It is important to note that registration might close earlier than the dates indicated if the maximum capacity is reached. In the past few years, this has happened a few weeks before the start of the conference. Early registration is therefore recommended. Registration will not be available onsite on the days of the conference, hence the last day to register, unless registration is closed earlier, will be 8 September 2019, the day prior to the conference.
2019 Linux Plumbers Conference has sold out. As registration spots open up from cancellations for example, the Plumbers organizing committee will allocate them to those on the waiting list with priority given to those who will be participating in microconferences and BoFs.
A hobbyist, broadly speaking, is anyone not employed in the Linux or Linux-related industries. To receive the discount code for hobbyist registration please email email@example.com with an email explaining why you think the category applies to you.
