Registration Information

The 2018 Linux Plumbers conference will take place 13 through 15 November, 2018 in Vancouver,  Canada. It’s 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 12 November 2018, the day prior to the conference.

Hobbyist Registration

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 with an email explaining why you think the category applies to you.
