One of the many important contributions The Linux Foundation makes to the community is facilitating opportunities for the face-to-face collaboration necessary for the innovation and advancement of Linux and open source. We host a variety of events around the world each year, from summits gathering the world’s leading kernel maintainers to forums for open source leadership to technical conferences gathering the developers, operators, and users of Linux and open source software—all of which contribute to the advancement of these platforms.

To help make these events as accessible and inclusive to all, The Linux Foundation offers hundreds of free scholarships to these events based on need. As one of the first open source conferences to publish and enforce a code of conduct, The Linux Foundation hosts Women in Open Source events to enable women to meet and help each other feel connected at many of our conferences. Whenever possible, we also offer mothers a room for breastfeeding and child care for parents in attendance. The Linux Foundation has also hosted Ada Initiative Allies workshops at our events to train people free of charge on diversity issues and the sensitivity needed in our communities.

The Linux Foundation also underwrites and sponsors countless community events each year, including SCALE, the Grace Hopper Conference for Women, Great Wide Open, and many more that provide important venues for the sharing of open source experiences and knowledge.

By supporting these open source events, we are helping to accelerate open source face-to-face collaboration.
