The Linux Plumbers Conference was created to provide a forum for communication and problem-solving for issues which are system-wide and cross project boundaries. This community event includes both invited guests as well as open registration, gathering 300 stakeholders, decision makers and developers.
The objective of the Plumbers Conference is to solve problems, a goal reflected in the program development. The conference is arranged as a series of MicroConfs, each on a topic that is narrow enough to identify specific problem areas and brainstorm workable solutions. Each MicroConf is run by a topic champion and attendees include invited stakeholders, decision-makers and leading and new developers.
The Linux Plumbers Conference is underwritten by The Linux Foundation and organized in partnership with The Linux Foundation and community volunteers.
The Linux Plumbers Conference is a revenue neutral event.
