LinuxCon is a name for a series of annual conventions organized each year since 2009 by the Linux Foundation The first LinuxCon took place in North America Linux Foundation started organizing similar events in Europe and Japan The original LinuxCon was rebranded LinuxCon North America, adding to the list LinuxCon Europe and LinuxCon Japan

Apart from keynotes given by some high-profile Linux people such as Linus Torvalds1 or Greg Kroah-Hartman2 in 2009, LinuxCon seems to be increasingly used by Information technology actors to talk about their plans about Linux For example, Nokia confirmed in 2010 the delivering of the first MeeGo device this same year,3 or Oracle Corporation explained in 2010 where they were heading for their Linux efforts after their acquisition of Sun Microsystems45

At the end of LinuxCon North America event in Toronto, Canada in 2016, it was announced that the event would be re-branded for 2017 As such, LinuxCon is now gone, instead being replaced in 2017 with an event called Open Source Summit
