The goal of LinuxFest Northwest is to bring together fun, smart, open minds in the community. People learn, teach and share. LinuxFest Northwest is a free and open community event. Anyone can attend the Fest presentations and exhibits at no charge.
Sponsors provide LinuxFest Northwest with the support needed to put on such an event, while keeping free admission.
Sponsors and Exhibitors benefit directly from Free/Open Source Software and its strong community. They help build and maintain a strong community, resulting in better software. LinuxFest Northwest is run completely by volunteers. While we are fortunate to have a venue sponsored by Bellingham Technical College, there are other costs associated with the event. Sponsors and Exhibitors gain valuable, low key access to top technical talent, and national exposure to FOSS-related markets. Several leading firms have found LFNW to be a good place to recruit.
