From Fedora Project Wiki

Fosscon is a Philadelphia event, quite closely tied to our local open source community... specifically the philly linux users group and hive76 (a local and very active hackerspace).

Date and time

August 10, 2013


  • Registration
  • (more updates soon)


1501 Cherry Street, Philadelphia, PA


The event is free and open to the public. Registration is not required for attendees, but preferred.


Talks for general interest stuff in our larger rooms (there will be two tracks of that) plus hands-on workshops.

[Hive76] is an active participant

Basekamp is a Philly non-profit, which was initially involved in arts and culture here in Philly. Basekamp had a space here for 13 years but is currently space-less. Basekamps purpose is more "open source culture" than "open source software" but over the years we've found interesting ways to work together. This is part of why hive is so closely involved, hackerspaces tend to bring all those things together. Hive76 will have their own workshop space, where they will be covering things like soldering, arduino, and battle-bots (they have a battle-bot assembly class and will be demo-ing their bots in an arena in their workshop space at fosscon)
