What, When, Where

LinuxFest NorthWest (LFNW) 2018

LinuxFest Northwest (LFNW) 2018 is the 19th annual premier Linux event in the northwestern U.S. Two days of Linux related talks, exhibition space for clubs and vendors, after-fest event on Saturday and the World Famous Raffle. About 2600 people attended in 2017.


The event is free but you will need a badge to get into events, so register online and you can pick up your badge at the Friday Night Party or at the festival.


Two hotels near the conference and airport have special LFNW rates and there are many other hotels in the area.

Fedora Python Classroom Lab

We will feature the Fedora Labs Python Classroom with Ninja IDE.

  • Show Python Classroom running on a Raspberry Pi.
  • Use a Python program for a short Fedora connection survey.
  • Offer Fedora Developers Trifold
  • Display the OLPC running Pippy, the Sugar Python Learning environment.



  • Connect with educators, students and developers interesting in Fedora and Python.
    • Held at Bellingham Technical College, LFNW attracts students and instructors from other Technical colleges using Linux and Python.
    • WWU is Washington State’s teachers college where Python qualifies as a math requirement. WWU students, teachers and staff attend LFNW.
    • Buses bring developers from tech companies in Seattle, Vancouver and beyond. Many of these developers use python and are interested in contributing to open source.


  • Fedora Python Classroom
    • Fedora solution for teaching, learning and using Python.
    • Fedora solution for teaching environments with USB key, Vagrant, Docker or installed group.


We meet many current Fedora users at LFNW and a few who joined as contributors to documentation and testing.


Many Python developers attending LFNW could contribute to Fedora Python Classroom, Fedora’s Py2 to Py3 effort, or Fedora’s Python infrastructure.
