On both conference days FrOSCon offers a comprehensive program (2017) of lectures and workshops in 8 rooms. Additional lectures and workshops are offered by several Open Source Projects in their own project rooms.

Apart from that, in recent years we could offer discounted Linux Professional Institute (LPI) exams, a keysigning party, Lighting Talks, a youth and kids track FrogLabs and our child care program Kernel Developers 2.0. In 2018 we can already state that we will offer:

  • FrogLabs
  • Childcare - Kernel Developers 2.0

Like every year there is also a social event with BBQ and local beer on Saturday evening to celebrate FrOSCon. 

Mobil Apps

Thanks to some developers there exist some apps to present the FrOSCon schedule:

Topical Focuses

We offer lectures about current developments of all areas of Free Software and Open Source, e.g.:

  • Operating systems
  • Software development
  • Administration
  • IT security
  • Legal aspects
  • Desktop
  • Education
  • GIS

Each year we focus on some topics. For 2018 these are not set yet.

Kids and Youth Track "FrogLabs"

In this year the kids and youth track "FrogLabs" is organized from kids for kids, meaning that theys can present their own projects and ideas in workshops.

Full participation in FrogLabs like every year requires registration through There will, however, be a few places for interested children to take part in the workshops only. These seats will be very limited.
