2016.1 participation: dark green: many locations – light green: a few locations – yellow: announced participation for 2016.2

At the end of 2014 the Berlin Linux User Group (BeLUG) developed a concept for a joint Linux event which aims at interested people who do not know Linux yet and especially at the (non-IT) media. This event can be organized with very little effort i.e. by small groups without budget, too. The first event of this kind was in Berlin in May 2015 at eight locations (each run by another organization).

The second Linux Presentation Day (LPD 2015.2) was on November, 14th 2015 but this time not limited to Berlin but in 72 cities in Germany, Austria and Switzerland (more than 1,500 visitors). The LPD 2016.1 was on April, 30th 2016 in more than 110 cities in 10 countries.

We are now looking for people in further countries who organize the participation in LPD 2016.2 (October, 22nd) for one or a few locations so that they gain experience with this kind of event and can organize a nationwide participation 2017.

conclusion

This concept allows nearly everyone in the Linux community to participate in a big event: Linux user groups and similar associations (even very small ones; registered or not), companies and even single persons (experienced Linux users) who support an association they were not related to before. It is little work for everyone but by combining the activities in a useful way we achieve a great result.
